I will give to the Lord the thanks due to his righteousness, and I will sing praise to the name of the Lord, the Most High.Psalm 7:17
I find it very very sad that many people due to reeducation in progressive public schools don't even know about the Christian roots of Thanksgiving. They are too busy bashing Americans' treatment of Indians and trying to toss prayer out of the schools. Such a sad state for a country founded on God and having a distinct Christian holiday which now is often relegated to 'Turkey Day'.Our society can not hardly wait for Christmas as Thanksgiving is forgotten except for football and black Friday. One of the things I want to do some November is travel to Plymouth Rock and take it all in. If you are a parent, take time to get a children's book about Thanksgiving and read the story to your children. It may do you well to hear it again also. Don't make this day about parades, football, shopping and stuffing yourself with food but stop and do something a bit different. Ask people what they are thankful for. Tell the story of the Pilgrims.The Pilgrims were so grateful to be in a free world and start a new life without religious persecution but odd how anti Christian and anti American forces have infiltrated this once free country. There is no other country like America but evil forces are trying to put an end to that so really pray this Thanksgiving maybe even take time to say the Lord’s Prayer together at your dinner table. Don’t just shrug it off as another fun day.PRAYER: I am ever so grateful for freedom we have here in America and during Covid times even more grateful after mandatory masking and lockdowns. Heal our land Lord of this dreadful pandemic that has created an atmosphere for tyranny. Help me never assume anything and always give thanks. In Jesus’ name! Amen.

November 23 devotion was deleted due to the offense of a reader and me not wanting to ruin my testimony or support of readers and create conflict. The purpose was never intended to agitate people but in this climate we live in in 2020 it is not hard to cause unintended division, if you choose to read it it can be found on my Echoes of Freedom page on Facebook. Thanks for your love and understanding.?

If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone.Romans 12:18
The current times in which you live are inundated with hashtags #️⃣ or what I used to call the pound or number sign. You can put hashtag before a word and click on it to be taken to a wealth of information about a certain subject or group.Have you ever wanted to get away from computers, social media, hashtags, and everything surrounding them? How does a nice walk by the ocean sound or a hike in the woods, without devices screaming at you. How about a hotel room without a television? I mean I need my device to do this devotion but what I purpose to do is to live intentionally beyond hashtags and all the things causing noise in the world.What is really important? God, family, life, friends, happiness. Being still in a ‘wound up‘ world can be a challenge but with practice you can achieve a measure of stillness in your life without the hashtags beckoning you to keep searching. Give it a try.PRAYER: I love life and get amazed with all the technology that has been developed but sometimes it is time to take a break. Help me Lord as I seek to carve out this time weekly in my schedule. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
