Thanksgiving History

What is the history of Thanksgiving Day? In December of 1620, a small group of colonists from England landed near Plymouth, Massachusetts, and built a settlement there. The first winter was filled with storms, deprivations, and disease, which took nearly half the colonists’ lives. However, hope was renewed the next year when the harvest proved to be bountiful. Governor William Bradford decreed that December 13 of that year be set aside as a day of feasting and prayer, a day…

Thanksgiving Thoughts

Thanksgiving is a great time to pause and consider… If you woke up this morning with more health than illness, you are more blessed than the million who will not survive this week. If you have never experienced the danger of battle, the loneliness of imprisonment, the agony of torture, or the pangs of starvation, you are ahead of 500 million people in the world. If you can attend a church meeting without fear of harassment, arrest, torture, or death,…

How is being a Christian like a pumpkin?

Web www.christianactivities.com //–> How is being a Christian like a pumpkin? God picks you from the pumpkin patch, brings you in, and washes all the dirt off of you.

And the Banner Yet Waves

Staring at a flag, half-mast, I pondered what it could mean. All the beautiful colors, Such an elegant scene. Why does this banner yet wave, Over this land of the free, This home of the brave? A loaded gun in hand. One way to become a man. The enemy he has killed, For freedom to be revealed. A friend or two he has lost, What a tragic, tearful cost. The night, it draws to a close. Yet the fighting rages…

The first Father

Web www.christianactivities.com //–> When Richelle was 2 years old she was out for the day with her dad running errands. The bank, post office and dry cleaners had conveniently been drive thru, which allowed Richelle to color on her portable art set with crayons. The last objective before home was to stop at the nearby Farm Crest for a fill up, a gallon of milk and a block of cheddar cheese. When they pulled up to the pump, Randy got…

Rounding Third

Web www.christianactivities.com //–> My son Aedan just got called in from the outfield to practice batting. He has a batting helmet on; he has his bat. His knees are bent; he’s leaning over the plate, and his bat is poised over his shoulder but not resting on his shoulder, never that. Three swings so far. A fourth pitch from the coach, and he finally makes contact. The ball rolls past second base. If it were a game it would’ve been…
