HAPPY THANKSGIVING 2019
“Gratitude is the proper disposition of a healthy human soul, and it’s the proper disposition of a good citizen in a democratic society.”
See “Historian Wilfred McClay: Thanksgiving Established Fundamental American Values Centuries Before 1776”
1 Chronicles 29:11-13:
–“Yours, O LORD, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the majesty and the splendor, for everything in heaven and earth is yours. Yours, O LORD, is the kingdom; you are exalted as head over all.
–Wealth and honor come from you; you are the ruler of all things. In your hands are strength and power to exalt and give strength to all.
–Now, our God, we give you thanks, and praise your glorious name.”
George Washington’s Thanksgiving proclamation 1789
—“It is the duty of all Nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey His will, to be grateful for His benefits, and humbly to implore His protection and favor”
Even in the midst of a shooting civil war, Abraham Lincoln proclaimed:
—“To these bounties, which are so constantly enjoyed that we are prone to forget the source from which they come, others have been added, which are of so extraordinary a nature, that they cannot fail to penetrate and soften even the heart which is habitually insensible to the ever watchful providence of Almighty God.”
Donald J. Trump’s Thanksgiving Proclamation 2019
—“Since the first settlers to call our country home landed on American shores, we have always been defined by our resilience and propensity to show gratitude even in the face of great adversity, always remembering the blessings we have been given in spite of the hardships we endure.”
—“As we gather today with those we hold dear, let us give thanks to Almighty God for the many blessings we enjoy, united together as one people, in gratitude for the freedoms and prosperity that thrive across our land, we acknowledge God as the source of all good gifts.”
—“Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord.”
The Redlands Tea Party Patriots express heartfelt “thank you” to all of the dedicated freedom loving, America loving Americans who are working so hard and giving so much for the #MAGA cause of preserving country, our God given freedom, our Constitution and our Republic.
If we are truly grateful for our God given blessings of freedom, prosperity and country, we are obligated to do everything we can to preserve them.
As Louis Gohmert said:
—“‘It’s in God’s hands’ does not mean we can lean on our shovels and wait for the hole to dig itself.”
