Happy Thanksgiving


The Pilgrims made seven times more graves than huts. No Americans have been more impoverished than these who, nevertheless, set aside a day of thanksgiving.
~H.U. Westermayer


1 Chronicles 16:8
Give thanks to the LORD, call on his name; make known among the nations what he has done.
