If this little Pilgrim couple could speak, they would relate many Thanksgiving memories from the Messick house... 26 years of memories. I cannot bear to part with the little guys. Always having seasonal things that the kids could handle, my babies were allowed to carry them around, teething on the wax hats, and chattering gibberish to them. As young children, they used them in little Pilgrim skits. And then, as older teens, the Pilgrims were greeted with, "Oh, I remember them from when we were little!"
And so... during this season that draws families together... this season begun by grateful families of old... I thank God for our family's precious memories.
"I will remember the works of the LORD: surely I will remember thy wonders of old. I will meditate also of all thy work, and talk of thy doings.Thy way, O God, is in the sanctuary: who is so great a God as our God? Thou art the God that doest wonders: thou hast declared thy strength among the people." ~ Psalm 77 11:14
