“Not what we say about our blessings,
but how we use them, is the true measure of our thanksgiving.”
-- W. T. Purkiser
We wish you a very happy healthy Thanksgiving.
I found the words of Rev. W.T. Purkiser printed above recently and felt that they eloquently spoke to me this Thanksgiving. I feel very blessed in many ways and giving back, working for peace and justice is one way I try and express my thanks.
