My dictionary states that Thanksgiving in the United States is an annual national holiday marked by religious observances and a traditional meal including turkey. The holiday commemorates a harvest festival celebrated by the Pilgrims in 1621, which is held on the fourth Thursday in November.
Thanksgiving - What Does It Mean To You?
By Jack Kerfoot
To me, this holiday is a time to give thanks for all my blessings, including:
Born in a democratic country that allows us freedom of speech and religion. Having lived and traveled extensively overseas, I know these freedoms are precious. Thanks to my fellow veterans, past and present who protect our country and our freedom. Thanks for family and for friends that my wife and I have made around the world. Thanks for the opportunity to serve others, including my country and my community.
On November 27th, I was able to help serve a Thanksgiving meal for a community in northeast Portland. Every Wednesday, Pastor Jon Hagebusch with the Portland Metro Church organizes a meal for the community and yesterday was their Thanksgiving dinner.
My contribution of time, helping serve the Thanksgiving meal was my small way to give thanks for all my blessings.
