“Thanksgiving is a time of gratitude to God, our Creator and Provider,
Whose guidance and care go before us, and whose love is with us forever.
Thanksgiving is a time to reflect on the changes, to remember that we, too,
Grow and change from one season of life to another.
Thanksgiving is a time of changing seasons, when leaves turn golden
In autumn’s wake and apples are crisp in the first chill breezes of fall.
Let us remember the true meaning of Thanksgiving.
As we see the beauty of autumn, let us acknowledge the many blessings
Which are ours, let us think of our families and friends,
And let us give thanks in our hearts.”
