Thanksgiving Beginnings

I ran across this quote of one of the first proclamations about Thanksgiving. It's interesting to see how far this country has strayed from God since then.

“That at one Time and with one Voice, the good People may express the grateful Feelings of their Hearts, and consecrate themselves to the Service of their Divine Benefactor…That it may please him graciously to afford his Blessing on the Governments of these States respectively, and prosper the public Council of the whole; To inspire our Commanders, both by Land and Sea, and all under them, with that Wisdom and Fortitude which may render them fit Instruments, under the Providence of Almighty God, to secure for these United States, the greatest of all human Blessings, INDEPENDENCE and PEACE.”

From this website.

Peace is not always prevalent in my house.... that part must come when I am really old and ornery so nobody will come and visit me!!!
