We Give Thanks
"Now, our God, we give You thanks, and praise Your glorious name."
1 Chronicles 29:13
Today is Thanksgiving in the USA, and we traditionally spend the day with family, giving thanks to God for our many blessings. It's a time celebrated with feasts and reflection and remembering the First Thanksgiving in 1621 when Pilgrims (English colonists) and Indians (Native Americans of the Wampanoag people) broke bread together in Plymouth Colony.
The photo above is the dessert table at the after-rehearsal dinner for my son and his bride, who were married last weekend. We had pumpkin-shaped pound cakes iced with caramel and topped with real pumpkin stems, along with pumpkin pies. The cakes and pies were baked by my sister-in-law.
