“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 joyful and happy Thanksgiving!
In 1913, before Thanksgiving was proclaimed a national holiday, New Mexico’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.”
As we enter this holiday season, may we heed Governor McDonald’s words and the words of Scripture by offering thanks to our Lord and extending His love and blessings to those in need.
God bless you,
Vince, Tiffany, Brooklyn, and Gavin
