And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work. 2 Corinthians 9:8

Thanksgiving Then
In 1621, the Plymouth colonists and Wampanoag Indians shared an autumn harvest feast that is acknowledged today as one of the first Thanksgiving celebrations in the colonies. For more than two centuries, days of thanksgiving were celebrated by individual colonies and states. It wasn’t until 1863, in the midst of the Civil War, that President Abraham Lincoln proclaimed a national Thanksgiving Day to be held each November.

Thanksgiving Today

And God is able to make all grace abound toward you … that you may abound to every good work.
