Thanksgiving 2015

thanksgiving-2015

Our Thanksgiving Day family time was significantly enriched by a guest from Saudi Arabia. We shared stories and laughed and cried together.

As part of our time together I told the story of Squanto as recorded in the children’s book by Eric Metaxas. Squanto was the Native American who had been kidnapped and taken to Europe and then came back and actually helped save the struggling Pilgrims. In many ways Squanto’s life paralled the life of the Biblical Joseph.

We had a contest for the best instant message inviting Squanto to the first Thanksgiving Dinner. Everyone was a winner.
