“O give thanks unto the Lord; for He is good.” - Ps. 118-1

Thanksgiving is the most personal of all the holidays. Poor indeed is the soul that does not have cause to give thanks.

Several years ago I ran a column based on a devotion I led at my church on the night before Thanksgiving in 1983. I have revised that column for this week’s Thanksgiving edition.
