We try to be thankful for all the blessings we have every day, but we always like to stop on Thanksgiving and reflect on the many blessings we have, to give special thanks to God for those blessings and to wish our readers a Happy Thanksgiving.
This past summer, we had the priviledge travel to Plymouth, MA, which is the place where the Pilgrims established their colony in the New World. The Pilgrims, who were fleeing religious persecution in England, have become an American symbol of freedom. They left all that was familiar to them to set out on a dangerous, two-month voyage across the Atlantic in a small boat to an unknown destination where they would face untold hardship - all so they could worship God as they felt He was calling them to do.
We are blessed to live in a country where we have the freedom to worship as we please and to travel without restriction. We are personally blessed with good health, with a loving family and with good friends (both old and new). We are thankful that we have the wherewithal to travel this beautiful country of ours to see its natural wonders and to learn about its people and its history. We are so blessed to be able to enjoy this adventure.
