Galatians 6:14

But God forbid that I should boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.

Happy Thanksgiving

Well, today is the first day that I start blogging, and since it falls on Thanksgiving Day, I found this poem that I thought would be appropriate. I believe it really reflects the spirit of Thanksgiving.

"Thanksgiving is a
time of gratitude to God,
our Creator and Provider,
whose guidance and care
go before us...
and whose love
is with us forever.
Thanksgiving is a time
to reflect on the changes,
to remember that we, too,
grow and change
from one season of life to another.
Thanksgiving is a time
of changing seasons,
when leaves turn golden
in Autumn's wake
and apples are crisp
in the first chill breezes of fall.
Let us remember the true meaning
of Thanksgiving.
As we see the beauty
of Autumn, let us acknowledge
the many blessings
which are ours...
let us think of our families
and friends..
and let us give thanks in our hearts.

I believe that Thanksgiving is about the providence of our holy and gracious God. The pilgrims had been blessed and they wanted to share the blessing with the Indians and each other.
