Thanksgiving a Different Story
Just like back then today we of different cultures gather to hear the word of God
I never heard the Thanksgiving Story in a way
The other night my mom and I went to a "Thanksgiving Women's Gathering" at our local church! It was my first time ever to attend such an event and I am glad we went.
I have never heard a Thanksgiving story the way I heard it that night, it was so amazing how something that happen back in the 1600's shows how the Lord above has a plan for everyone and everything in a certain time. For example the young Indian who was taken at the age of 20 to England to be sold as a slave and was bought by some church going people in order to be set free from slavery but he decided to stay to learn the word and the ways of the Lord; which is where he learned how to speak English. When this Indian turned 30 years old he set back to his homeland to find everyone he loved and knew dead and came across the Pilgrims living on his land.
This Indian man didn't hold it against them instead he helped the Pilgrims and taught them how to live on his land which later on was wonderful because the day it was time for Thanksgiving with plentiful of harvested foods and crops there was lots; enough to feed tribes and pilgrims from America and this was all in God's plan.
Until today we all well most of us celebrate and give Thanks for the things we have and don't have and just like back in 1620 we are people of different cultures, colors, and languages! It was a really wonderful way to hear the Thanksgiving Story and I just wanted to share it briefly with others!
