I pray a blessed Thanksgiving for you and your family this year.
I would guess your kids aren't being taught the strong Christian origins of not only Thanksgiving, but the founding of America itself?
I know I never heard it in school, and much of it I only learned this year after doing some digging.
A few things included in that teaching:
Will you take a few moments today and teach your children about America's rich spiritual heritage?
As we celebrate this Thanksgiving in a tenuous time in our nation, may we pray that we have the same tenacity of our forefathers to pray and to dedicate ourselves to God and HIS purposes.
May our nation honor God in gratefulness for how he has created us male and female, how we steward our children, the sacredness of marriage as God ordained it, and our religious freedoms.
Jamestown Chaplain Rev. Robert Hunt said, “Every plantation, which my Heavenly Father hath not planted, shall be rooted up.” And, raising his hands to heaven, Hunt consecrated the continent to the glory of God. In covenantal language he declared, “…from these very shores the Gospel shall go forth to not only this New World, but the entire world.”
Will you pray with me? “Oh Lord, we thank you for your many blessings and ask your forgiveness for the ways we have turned from you as a nation. Please remember your Covenant with us and heal our land that we might shine again for you.”
Have a blessed Thanksgiving, my friend,
P.S.S. Also here's a "What's the Truth About the First Thanksgiving?" Video you can show your kids.
