To The Readers of DMF.....

I Wish You All A Happy Thanksgiving

All Should be Greatful We Are Americans and
Pray Indeed for the Country We Love So Much.


"It has seemed to me fit and proper that they should be solemnly, reverently and gratefully acknowledged as with one heart and voice by the whole American people. I do therefore invite my fellow citizens in every part of the United States, and also those who are at sea and those who are sojourning in foreign lands, to set apart and observe the last Thursday of November next, as a day of Thanksgiving and Praise to our beneficent Father who dwelleth in the Heavens. 
And I recommend to them that while offering up the ascriptions justly due to Him for such singular deliverances and blessings, they do also, with humble penitence for our national perverseness and disobedience, commend to his tender care all those who have become widows, orphans, mourners or sufferers in the lamentable civil strife in which we are unavoidably engaged, and fervently implore the interposition of the Almighty Hand to heal the wounds of the nation and to restore it as soon as may be consistent with the Divine purposes to the full enjoyment of peace, harmony, tranquility and Union.
In testimony whereof, I have hereunto set my hand, and caused the seal of the United States to be affixed.
Done at the city of Washington, this third day of October, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and sixty-three, and of the independence of the United States the eighty-eighth." - Abraham Lincoln

  4. Happy Thanksgiving Jan! Your fire reminded me I should get my butt up and put a log on the fire. Yes the Woodsterman (note the name) uses a natural replaceable fuel to heat his home ... shame on him.

  5. Happy Thanksgiving, DS!! Isn't it funny how today's leftists like to pretend that our previous presidents were all atheists? Nice reminder that they were not.
