Thanksgiving Challenge

Word art by Karma can be downloaded for free in our shop, versions for paper and digi scrappers.

This week do a layout that shows how thankful you are to our Lord for what he has done in your life.

The following is by the United States in Congress assembled.


It being the indispensable duty of all Nations, not only to offer up their supplications to ALMIGHTY GOD, the giver of all good, for his gracious assistance in a time of distress, but also in a solemn and public manner to give him praise for His goodness in general, and especially for great and signal interpositions of his providence in their behalf:

Therefore the United States in Congress assembled, taking into their consideration the many instances of divine goodness to these States, in the course of the important conflict in which they have so long engaged; the present happy and promising state of public affairs; and the events of the war, in the course of the year now drawing to a close…Do hereby recommend to the inhabitants of these States in general, to observe, and request the several States to interpose their authority in appointing and commanding the observation of THURSDAY the twenty-eight day of NOVEMBER next, as a day of solemn THANKSGIVING TO GOD for all his mercies: and they do further recommend to all ranks, to testify to their gratitude to GOD for his goodness, by a cheerful obedience of his laws, and by promoting, each in his station, and by his influence, the practice of true and undefiled religion, which is the great foundation of public prosperity and national happiness.

Done in Congress, at Philadelphia, the eleventh day of October, in the year of our LORD one thousand seven hundred and eighty-two, and of our Sovereignty and Independence, the seventh.

JOHN HANSON, President

Charles Thomson, Secretary

Wow! I'd never seen that proclamation before. And it just confirms to me how God played such an integral part in the organization of these United States to foster religious freedom. I am also saddened by the number of people in this country who want to re-write history and remove God from the equation. Thanksgiving to God...He is good!
