From the Merriam-Webster online dictionary, the definition of thanksgiving (not the holiday) is: 1. the act of giving thanks 2. a prayer expressing gratitude 3. a public acknowledgment or celebration of divine goodness
And pilgrim is: 1. one who journeys in foreign lands : wayfarer 2. one who travels to a shrine or holy place as a devotee 3. capitalized : one of the English colonists settling at Plymouth in 1620
And, therefore, today as we celebrate capital THANKSGIVING, we do it as pilgrims full of thanksgiving. Ones that have journeyed to a foreign land and participated in the act/prayer/public acknowledgement of God’s divine goodness in our lives.
But, because we live in a foreign country and are a bit on the side of rebels anyway, we decided to be Pilgrims all Fajita style!
We hope your day of family and giving thanks was fantastically wonderful!
Thanks for joining our crazy,
B and R and our gang of rebel Pilgrims…Enjoying life fajita-style
*Only cows and chickens suffered at the hands of our meal. All turkeys were spared*
A Psalm of Thanksgiving.
1 Make a joyful shout to the Lord, all you lands! 2 Serve the Lord with gladness; Come before His presence with singing. 3 Know that the Lord, He is God; It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves; We are His people and the sheep of His pasture. 4 Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, And into His courts with praise. Be thankful to Him, and bless His name. 5 For the Lord is good; His mercy is everlasting, And His truth endures to all generations. Psalm 100 (NKJV)
