Giving Thanks

If you’re like me and most Americans, today you will stuff yourself with turkey, ham, or prime rib and all the trimmings. You will enjoy time with family, football on TV, or games with family and friends. But in the midst of all the food, fun, and fellowship, let’s remember why we are celebrating. This day is set aside as a day of thanksgiving and praise to God for His many blessings. 

O MOST merciful Father, who hast blessed the labours of the husbandman in the returns of the fruits of the earth; We give thee humble and hearty thanks for this thy bounty; beseeching thee to continue thy loving-kindness to us, that our land may still yield her increase, to thy glory and our comfort; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

~ Thanksgiving Collect from the 1928 Book of Common Prayer

Wishing a blessed and happy Thanksgiving to you and your loved ones.
