A. Who Is This?

The feast celebrated by the pilgrims in 1621 was never actually called “Thanksgiving” by the colonists.
It was simply a harvest celebration.
A few years later, in July of 1623, the pilgrims did hold what they called a “Thanksgiving.”
This was simply a religious day of prayer and fasting that had nothing to do with the fall harvest.
A revelation of true thanksgiving.
What are you thankful for on this thanksgiving day?
