We are a very blessed people, living in a very blessed land, over which President George Washington proclaimed a day of Thanksgiving. One cannot read Washington’s proclamation without clearly hearing multiple references to Almighty God and the petition for Him to bless our nation.
Have we thrown away our faith and belief in the Almighty who is capable of blessing this great land? At times, it seems so. However, we each have the opportunity to cling to our Judeo-Christian heritage and live out our faith.
Today, as we celebrate Thanksgiving, be reminded of the intent of this day. Take a couple moments to read President Washington’s Thanksgiving Proclamation, then thank Almighty God for His grace and mercy to us.
Blessings to you and your family this Thanksgiving Day!

Dear Kym, Thank you for sending this wonderful proclamation by George Washington. I love it and have Lincoln’s as well. I am still on an “Israeli High”, from this mountaintop experience! I am enjoying going through my notes, reading the Scriptures, looking at the maps, reviewing the itinerary as I keep looking at all the pictures trying to identify them all while still fresh in my mind. I also want to thank you Kym for all your blog posts. I haven’t read them all yet, but my daughter in law, Becky, kept up reading them all to her family then praying. And she still loves reading them! So thank you!
Have a blessed, restful and happy Thanksgiving!! Love and Shalom, Kathy

Blessings and Happy Thanksgiving, Kathy! My sincere prayer is that our Israel tour will live on in the hearts and minds of all who went, so that we might be equipped to live out God’s Word, as we saw it come to life! So glad the blog was (and is) a blessing to your family, and pray it will continue to be. I’m also so very grateful you chose to join us on the tour! You are a blessing and I wish you and your family a very Happy Thanksgiving! (PS: If you need help identifying locations of pictures, let me know!)
