While exploring the various celebrations of Thanksgiving in the U.S., I discovered I didn’t know actual facts. If you are interested in the true meaning, read on: Why we celebrate Thanksgiving
Tomorrow many people will sit down with family and friends and share in the gifts of food, laughter and conversation. Some are serving our country, working in public service, or it’s just their regularly scheduled shift and will have a warmed up plate at home.

Psalm 100:4 Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.
