There shall be “a day of public Thanksgiving and prayer to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many signal favors of Almighty God…” ––1789 Congressional Proclamation
…falling to their knees to pray, they (the Pilgrims) celebrated by reading Psalm 100:
“…Give thanks to Him; bless His name. For the Lord is good; His lovingkindness is everlasting, And His faithfulness to all generations.” (from Thanksgiving, A Time to Remember, by Barbara Rainey)
A Helping of Hospitality will return next week, because I am taking time to be with family over this long weekend, and remembering to be thankful! No video this week, but I know these posts on hospitality and the recipes included will be just what you needed instead. Have a great Thanksgiving!

We all want to be a good guest, so this one on “Lord, Help Me Not be a Ghastly Guest”
