The First Thanksgiving by Jennie Augusta Brownscombe

We pause today to reflect on the many blessings we enjoy as citizens of this great land, and wish the abundant bounties of this uniquely American holiday to each and every one of our readers.

Do yourself a favor and read this inspiring Thanksgiving Proclamation issued in 1789 by President George Washington. The first paragraph references God a total of five times:

Whereas it is the duty of all nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey His will, to be grateful for His benefits, and humbly to implore His protection and favor; and Whereas both Houses of Congress have, by their joint committee, requested me to “recommend to the people of the United States a day of public thanksgiving and prayer, to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many and signal favors of Almighty God, especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness:”

Read it in its entirety here. We recommend this inspiring proclamation for reading aloud at your dining table today. It’s a gift your friends and family will long remember.

    Happy Thanksgiving to you all!
    While we enjoy the holiday, be it with family, friends, libations, football etc… please take just a moment to think of and thank those serving in our armed forces and their families.

    To Them I Am Truly Thankful, This Year and Every Year.

    The current occupant of the White House could never be so eloquent or pious—even with his teleprompter.

    Happy Thanksgiving to all!
