Thanksgiving Day...thanks to Abraham Lincoln

I don't usually do posts that redirect you to another site, but I decided to make an exception today.  I just read a post about Thanksgiving Day over at Lynn Coleman's blog, 19th Century Historical Tidbits, and I couldn't resist passing it on.  It's the proclamation that Abraham Lincoln made in 1863 declaring the last Thursday in November to be a Day of Thanksgiving and Prayer.  What is particularly moving is the last two paragraphs, which apply to us as much today as they did almost 150 years ago.

Go check out Lynn's may just bring tears to your eyes.  :o)
