I want to learn to see Thanksgiving like the pilgrims. When they planned their feast a year in advance they were in a critical situation. They didn't know where they would live. If they would survive. Where their provisions would come from. They were trusting that in just a year they would have bountiful blessings for which to give thanks. The pilgrims looked forward with great expectation to the celebration. Reminds me of the verse we choose for Gavin when we found out we were expecting, "Faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we can not see."
