    Thanksgiving Proclamation
    Issued by President George Washington, at the request of Congress, on October 3, 1789
    By the President of the United States of America, a Proclamation.


    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 favor, able 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 enabled 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 third day of October in the year of our Lord 1789.
    George Washington

    Thanks for the reminder DOC... May GOD Bless you and your wonderful family...

    I was studying in Leviticus 23 yesterday to know/understand the observances of our ancestors... It's clear that GOD commands solemn time of observance as well as celebration, giving thanks for all that he has blessed the nations that recognize CHRIST as the Messiah/Son Of God...

    I believe that IF the Libya or Sudan or Congo government/people turned to Christ tomorrow, the blessings on that nation would start TOMORROW...

    The U.S. is a blessed nation NOT because God likes us MORE, but rather because our founding fathers mapped out a course that was formed up around the biblical principles of Gods LAW/teachings and precepts AND they recognized where our blessings flow from... As those principals go, so goes our blessings...


    Happy Thanksgiving to all my PB friends...

Hope all the atheist are giving thanks to us believers, that they can celebrate this day with there family, and know the reason why. Unfortunate that I have business that has to be open today and has been for the last four years. When we use to close down for 2 days.

    Amen

    I hope each of you will Drink, Steal, Swear and Lie this Thanksgiving Day....

    Default Thanksgiving Day

    Happy Thanksgiving,

    Doc,
    I, with interest, watch our society try to explain "separation of church and state" as separation from god entirely as a society. The original intent was that there is not a state sponsored religion. The current progressives in their typical modus of operandi try to take small phrases and define them in their favor in a completely differing manner taking the original intent and perverting it out of context.

    Example: Pro Choice. Sounds good right? But to a progressive it means that partial birth abortion is OK.....AT BIRTH. But the same loony progressives want capitol punishment banned? MOST normal folks, even those that are pro-choice, would find partial birth abortion to be repugnant.

    As a society we are slowly finding ourselves in moral decay, a slow process but a process none the less. To the level that a good and moral man like Doc are scorned and made fun of as some sort of extremist.

    Doctor, thanks for the reminder, a reminder that our forefathers were moral men. moral men of belief.

    Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter. Isaiah 5:20

    We're there and getting deeper everyday.


    Happy Thanksgiving every one.
