On Thanksgiving we had 20 people in our home to celebrate God’s faithfuless through out the ages . This day is an important day in the history of America. It gives us the time to pray and seek God for forgiveness of our sinful behavior toward Him. God’s Love and faithfulness, first to the Pligrims then to us in the 21 century. I am very thankful for Papa and Mama who make sure that the word of God is firmly established in our hearts and that we do not forget the vision of the Pilgrims.They came here to build a city on a hill that will not be hidden. And we the young generation should obey God’s commands and continue in the foot steps of the Pilgrims.
Mattew 5:13-14 “13 ¶Ye are the asalt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.
14 Ye are the alight of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hidden”.
These three ladies are very kind, virtuous, and excellent wives and mothers.They made a wonderful thanksgiving dinner for all of us. From left to right are Mrs.Giligardoo, my beloved mother Mrs. Levi, and my beloved auntie Mrs. Boucard.
“10 ¶Who can find a avirtuous bwoman? for her price is far above rubies.11 The heart of her husband doth safely atrust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil 12 She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life.13 She seeketh wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her ahands.14 She is like the merchants’ ships; she bringeth her food from afar.15 She ariseth also while it is yet night, and giveth meat to her household, and a portion to her maidens.16 She considereth a field, and buyeth it: with the fruit of her hands she planteth a vineyard. 17 She girdeth her loins with strength, and strengtheneth her arms.18 She perceiveth that her merchandise is good: her candle goeth not out by night.19 She layeth her hands to the spindle, and her hands hold the adistaff.20 She stretcheth out her hand to the apoor; yea, she reacheth forth her hands to the needy.21 She is not afraid of the snow for her household: for all her household are clothed with scarlet.22 She maketh herself coverings of tapestry; her aclothing is silk and purple. 23 Her husband is known in the gates, when he sitteth among the elders of the land. 24 She maketh fine linen, and selleth it; and delivereth girdles unto the merchant. 25 Strength and honour are her aclothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come. 26 She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of akindness. 27 She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of aidleness. 28 Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her. 29 Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all. 30 Favour is deceitful, and abeauty is vain: but a woman that bfeareth the Lord, she shall be praised. 31 Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates.”
