    “Most gracious Lord God, from whom proceedeth every good and perfect gift, I offer to Thy Divine Majesty my unfeigned praise and thanksgiving, for all Thy mercies toward me. Thou made me at first and hast ever since sustained the work of Thine own hand. Thou gave Thy Son to die for me, and hast given me assurance of salvation upon my repentance and sincerely endeavoring to conform my life to His holy precepts and example. Thou art pleased to lengthen out to me the time of repentance and to move me to it by Thy Spirit and by Thy Word, and by Thy mercies and by Thy judgments. Amen.”

    Excerpted from Janice T. Connell, Faith of Our Founding Fathers (Hatherleigh Press)

    Happy Thanksgiving to all of you fine folks on TFF! Even though we are in the midst of a battle, remember to give thanks for our blessings.
