So hard to believe.....

that next Thursday is THANKSGIVING!

"We have been the recipients of the choicest bounties of heaven;
we have grown in numbers, wealth, and power as no other nation has ever grown.

But we have forgotten God.

We have forgotten the gracious Hand which preserved us in peace and multiplied and enriched
and strengthened us, and we have vainly imagined, in the deceitfulness of our hearts, that all
these blessings were produced by some superior wisdom and virtue of our own."

Abraham Lincoln 1863
an excerpt from his Thanksgiving Proclamation

"Funny" how this could have been written today...2009
