I pray your day is blessed with all good things and you are surrounded with family, friends, and love.
In the year of 1620
on a cold December day
a hundred and two pilgrims
sailed into Plymouth Bay.
Still weary from their voyage –
still gracing winter’s chill –
they kept their sights on freedom
with courage, work, and will.
Pilgrims did not stop to think
of riches, fame, or glory
while bravely playing starring roles
in our new nation’s story
by Bobbi Katz
I’m so thankful the pilgrims didn’t give up. I’m so thankful that God gave them the will and stamina to keep pushing forward when obstacles kept popping up in their way. I am thankful they came her for religious freedom. I am thankful that, for now, we still benefit from that religious freedom. I see our freedoms and the right to choose being taken away more each day by a government that seems to have completely forgotten that our Constitution gives us rights and that this country was founded for freedom. And I have to remember that true freedom never has and never will come from man – true freedom only comes from God above.
I pray we can all put our trust in God, that He will see us through the coming days, carry us when needed, and bless us each and every one.
