Happy Thanksgiving!

Posted: Nov 27, 2008 12:52 PM
Even as we keep in our prayers all those in danger, sorrow, sickness and need anywhere in the world, we pause to give thanks for the many blessings bestowed on us -- as free people in this wonderful, bounteous land -- by God.

It's long been obvious to me that Thanksgiving is the most distinctly American holiday of all.  And this year, as every other, there is so much for which to be thankful: The love of family and friends, freedom, health, and the opportunity to serve in whatever capacity we've been called to do so.

I am thankful for the opportunity to participate in the discussion at this forum, and for your readership.  I am grateful to live in a country where we may speak our minds without fear.  I am blessed by the faithfulness of the same "Divine Benefactor"  our Founding Fathers invoked at this country's inception.  May it always be ever so, for all of us.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.
