We are celebrating Thanksgiving, everyone’s favorite day of family togetherness, traveling from near and far, and looking forward to the fun and feasting with great joy, because we will be with loved ones.  Let us remember to give special thanks to our good and gracious God, for all our blessings that we seem to take for granted more and more.  

When we join our hands in prayer around our bounteous Thanksgiving table, with our hearts aglow, let us thank God for the gifts of our homes and our work, and for the gift of great minds working together to bring peace in our world.  We thank Him for this greatest country and our freedom, so dearly bought, by so many courageous souls, of yesteryear and ongoing, to this very day.  

As our Pilgrim fathers did, ever so reverently, let us lift our eyes humbly heavenward to thank Him and to trust in Him during these uncertain times, for our freedom to worship, and for all His blessings and the treasures of life!  A blessed Thanksgiving to you and your loved ones.   

Children bring joy and delight to so many with their thoughtfulness and kindness, and these virtues are part of what makes Tots-N-Us Nursery School and Daycare a very nurturing and positive experience in their young lives.  Of course, these gifts come from the home, but they are enhanced by the love and support they see every day in their classroom with dedicated teachers.

To make a promise to commit to a huge project like collecting necessary foods for those in need, and naming it, “Jammin’ the Jeep for Thanksgiving dinners” for Deacon Jack Seymour Food Pantry, shows off their playful side that turns hard work into smiles for the little ones and their teachers and everyone involved.  Do you not believe that Miss Liz’s heart was shining with joy and peace?  And the boys and girls, with smiles shining so brightly were a testament, to the light of the Lord, shining from the very depth of their pure hearts.  What beautiful memories to know that this special Thanksgiving feast made happy smiles and happier tummies.  Great job, Tots!
