November has arrived with a sense of anticipation of the upcoming holiday season. Neighborhoods are decorated with the colors of autumn and the air is filled with a fresh crispness.

Thanksgiving Day , legal holiday in the U.S., first celebrated in early colonial times in New England. The actual origin, however, is probably the harvest festivals that are traditional in many parts of the world Festivals and Feasts. After the first harvest was completed by the Plymouth colonists in 1621, Governor William Bradford proclaimed a day of thanksgiving and prayer, shared by all the colonists and neighboring Native Americans.

Definition of harvest: the gathering of ripe crops, the crops or the amount so gathered, or the season in which they are gathered.

In 1623 a day of fasting and prayer during a period of drought was changed to one of thanksgiving because the rain came during the prayers. Gradually the custom prevailed in New England of annually celebrating thanksgiving after the harvest.

During the American Revolution a yearly day of national thanksgiving was suggested by the Continental Congress. In 1817 New York State adopted Thanksgiving Day as an annual custom, and by the middle of the 19th century many other states had done the same. In 1863 President Abraham Lincoln appointed a day of thanksgiving, and since then each president has issued a Thanksgiving Day proclamation, generally designating the fourth Thursday of November as a holiday. Thanksgiving is a statutory holiday in Canada, celebrated, since 1957, on the second Monday in October. Observance of the day began in 1879. “Thanksgiving Day,”Microsoft Encarta 98 Encyclopedia. 1993-1997 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.

Over the River and Thru the Woods

Over the river and through the wood To Grandfather’s house we go. The horse knows the way To carry the sleigh Through white and drifted snow.

Over the river and through the wood Oh, how the wind does blow! It stings the toes And bites the nose, As over the ground we go.

Over the river and through the wood To have a first-rate play. Hear the bells ring, Ting-a-ling-ling! Hurrah forThanksgiving Day!

Over the river and through the wood, Trot fast, my dapple gray! Spring over the ground Like a hunting hound, For this is Thanksgiving Day.

Over the river and through the wood, And straight through the barnyard gate. We seem to go Extremely slow It is so hard to wait!

Over the river and through the wood Now Grandmother’s cap I spy! Hurrah for fun! Is the pudding done? Hurrah for the pumpkin pie!

Are you grateful and appreciative of all that the Lord has done for you? Do you remember to visit with God daily and to tell Him how thankful you are for your blessings?

Your heavenly Father loves to visit with you. He wants to know you and He wants you to know Him better too. Think of the Lord as a very special friend who has come to live in your home. Would you ever let a day pass without visiting your roommate? Set a special time every day to visit with God and try very hard to remember to meet with Him daily. You wouldn’t disappoint a friend by forgetting him and Jesus is the very best friend you will ever have!

Invite the Lord to your Thanksgiving dinner and thank Him for all the bounty and blessings in your life.
