Thoughts from Lincoln on Thanksgiving

Bringing back genuine gratitude this holiday season will be befitting to a world who has grown too dependent on appliances, devices and ‘time saving’ technologies. To understand where we have been we must go back as far as is necessary and really look around. For many, this will be the first time. For others it will be a homecoming and we can get where we’re going from there. Together. – The Castle Lady

Lincoln_Oyster“We have been the recipients of the choicest bounties of heaven;
we have been preserved these many years in peace and prosperity;
we have grown in numbers, wealth and power as no other nation has ever grown.
But we have forgotten God.
We have forgotten the gracious hand which preserved us in peace
and multiplied and enriched and strengthened us
and we have vainly imagined, in the deceitfulness of our hearts,
that all these things were produced by some superior wisdom and virtue of our own.
Intoxicated with unbroken success,
we have become too self-sufficient to feel the necessity of redeeming and preserving grace,
too proud to pray to the God that made us.”

Abraham Lincoln
