A Special Day for Giving Thanks

Good morning to each of you!

I would like to introduce you to Sarah Hale. She wrote, “Mary Had a Little Lamb”.

Sarah was a poet, a novelist, and an editor in the middle 1800's. Through her repeated efforts of contacting President Lincoln, Sarah Hale finally convinced the President to declare a specific day of thanksgiving to God for all the blessings we receive. Until the fourth Thursday in November was made a national festival, states celebrated on various dates and other states did not officially regard any certain day.

I hope your Thanksgiving Day was all you wanted it to be.

“It is good to give thanks to the Lord, to sing praises to the Most High.” Psalm 92:1

“Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good! His faithful love endures forever.” Psalm 118:1
