Giving Thanks



Nearly 400 years ago the pilgrims sat down for a feast with their native neighbors to give thanks to God for surviving their first year in the "new world." This week we remember that first Thanksgiving. I pray that all those who are able will give thanks to God for surviving another year. We have different hardships. We do not have to worry about the same things they did. We have H1N1, they had the flu, or diphtheria, or small pox. We have vaccines for the worst of those diseases that claimed many of those pioneering folks of old, so our worries and fears are probably different than their were. Our prayer, however, should be the same: "Thank you, Lord!"
