H A P P Y T H A N K S G I V I N G !
Have a safe holiday and wonderful moments with your families and friends. Your support has been greatly appreciated and immensely enjoyed. I look forward to another year of sharing with you.
MAY GOD BLESS YOU!
I hope you all have a joyful, heartwarming day of thanksgiving. Let us give thanks always, not merely on this holiday. Be safe and take care.
Thank you, Father, for your wonderful gifts of life and love. Help us to appreciate what we do have and hold everything dear to our hearts. We praise You and adore You. Grant us peace. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
It is such a wonder to log in to my blog and see the smiling new friends God has provided me with this year. You are such a welcome sight, my friends. You encourage and challenge me in so many ways. I thank the Lord for each one of you.

HARK, hark, the sound of war is heard,
And we must all attend;
Take up our arms and go with speed,
Our country to defend.
Our parent state has turned our foe,
Which fills our land with pain;
Her gallant ships, manned out for war,
Come thundering o’er the main.
There’s Carleton, Howe, and Clinton too.
And many thousands more,
May cross the sea, but all in vain,
Our rights we’ll ne’er give o’er.
Our pleasant homes they do invade,
Our property devour;
And all because we won’t submit
To their despotic power.
Then let us go against our foe,
We’d better die than yield;
We and our sons are all undone,
If Britain wins the field.
Tories may dream of future joys,
But I am bold to say,
They’ll find themselves bound fast in chains,
If Britain wins the day.
Husbands must leave their loving wives,
And sprightly youths attend,
Leave their sweethearts and risk their lives,
Their country to defend.
May they be heroes in the field,
Have heroes’ fame in store;
We pray the Lord to be their shield,
Where thundering cannons roar.
