“Enter his gates with thanksgiving, and his courts with praise! Give thanks to him; bless his name!” –Psalm 100:4
On behalf of my family and Family Policy Alliance of New Mexico, I want to wish you a joyous and happy Thanksgiving!
In 1913, before it was proclaimed a national holiday, our state’s first Governor, William McDonald, proclaimed Thanksgiving Day in New Mexico and offered the following words:
“I urge upon all that this day be observed as one of prayer and praise to God for the many blessings enjoyed by our people. At the same time may we not forget the poor and needy, making the day what its name implies for all.”
May we all heed Gov. McDonald’s words this season by offering thanks to God and extending His love and blessings to all in need.
Thank you for your prayers and support!
President and Executive Director
