Whereas it is the duty of all nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey His will, to be grateful for His benefits, and humbly to implore His protection and favor; and Whereas both Houses of Congress have, by their joint committee, requested me to recommend to the people of the United States a day of public thanksgiving and prayer, to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many and signal favors of Almighty God, especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness:
Now, therefore, I do recommend and assign Thursday, the 26th day of November next, to be devoted by the people of these States to the service of that great and glorious Being who is the beneficent author of all the good that was, that is, or that will be; that we may then all unite in rendering unto Him our sincere and humble thanks for His kind care and protection of the people of this country previous to their becoming a nation; for the signal and manifold mercies and the favorable interpositions of His providence in the course and conclusion of the late war; for the great degree of tranquility, union, and plenty which we have since enjoyed; for the peaceable and rational manner in which we have been enable to establish constitutions of government for our safety and happiness, and particularly the national one now lately instituted for the civil and religious liberty with which we are blessed, and the means we have of acquiring and diffusing useful knowledge; and, in general, for all the great and various favors which He has been pleased to confer upon us.
And also that we may then unite in most humbly offering our prayers and supplications to the great Lord and Ruler of Nations and beseech Him to pardon our national and other transgressions; to enable us all, whether in public or private stations, to perform our several and relative duties properly and punctually; to render our National Government a blessing to all the people by constantly being a Government of wise, just, and constitutional laws, discreetly and faithfully executed and obeyed; to protect and guide all sovereigns and nations (especially such as have shown kindness to us), and to bless them with good governments, peace, and concord; to promote the knowledge and practice of true religion and virtue, and the increase of science among them and us; and, generally to grant unto all mankind such a degree of temporal prosperity as He alone knows to be best.
Given under my hand, at the city of New York, the 3d day of October, A.D. 1789.
I wish all an early Happy Thanksgiving Day, which falls on Thursday November 25, 2010, wherever in the world you might be reading or viewing from. May all fellow believers into Christ Jesus rest and comfort in G-D's love, tender mercies and loving-kindness.
Let each and every day have a measure of Thanksgiving to G-D for blessings great and small, and even just for living...and joy and communion be found everlasting for all, whosoever will, come to and believe into Christ Jesus our L-RD, who came down from Heaven, was made man, paid for our sins at the Cross, died as was raised the Third Day, walked the Earth for a month and a half more before ascending into Heaven before many witnesses. A Testimony uncontested by those ancients, even the most hostile of them, of the same generation as these events occurred in.
May you worship and give thanks to G-D wherever you are, and may G-D smile upon and bless you as according to your needs, through riches in glory in Christ Jesus.
May all we who believe into Jesus Christ, and proclaim Him as the Only Way, Truth, and Life offered by the Father unto the world, unite in prayers of Thanksgiving on this day and all days...be we Gentile (of the nations) or Jew (the blessed first chosen of G-D's favor, to be honored by the saints when fellow believers into Yeshua/Jesus among us, and still to be shown greater patience and understanding/intelligent courtesy otherwise).

It is likely that the entries to this blog will be less frequent than in years past. I do intend to keep this blog active, and to offer insightful information and/or opinion (and sometimes humor and/or entertainment on occasion) when I do post.
