Who were the pilgrims giving thanks to , one might ask today
Was it to the wind ? Tall trees ? Birds flying high in the sky ?
Who were the pilgrims giving thanks to that first Thanksgiving Day
for their safe journey across the sea, and the blessing they shared -
In this modern, fast paced, busy, buying, bundling world we live in
some may have forgotten, or don’t know the pilgrims prayer of thanksgiving
was to God in Heaven; the Creator. And I’d like to think, not only for
that moment of safety and calm, but for the struggle that got them there,
and for the promise of His guidance the rest of the way. That if they
trusted in Him, abided in Him all would be well.
We are all on a journey, maybe not to a distant land, but perhaps
one laden with challenges and change that requires us to grow
and persevere ; to have hope, and believe . Then like the pilgrims so
