With My Whole Heart
Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday of the year (yes, I love Christmas and Easter too). The beauty of Thanksgiving is in the simplicity of the holiday. We are called to simply give thanks for the blessings we have. George Washington called for a day of public thanksgiving and prayer. Abraham Lincoln declared an official Thanksgiving holiday in 1863 after the Battle of Gettysburg. And finally, Franklin D. Roosevelt and Congress permanently installed the fourth Sunday of November as the official Thanksgiving holiday. Let us make it a practice to publicly give thanks to God for who He is and what He has done.
