Thanksgiving Quotes


So once in every year we throng
Upon a day apart,
To praise the Lord with feast and song
In thankfulness of heart.


~Arthur Guiterman, The First Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving puts steel into our patriotic veins. It reminds us of our great heritage. It carries us back with numbing nostalgia to that first dreadful winter at Plymouth where less than half the handful of people survived. It speaks in clear, crisp tones of forgotten terms, like: integrity...bravery...respect...faith...vigilance...dignity...
honor...freedom...discipline...sacrifice...godliness.


- Charles R. Swindoll

Thanks Liza for the Thanksgiving words. We went to Costco again last night to get our turkey and stuff and guess what? I found a Gingerbread house! Yeah! And Michael said it was totally fine to get! Yippee!
