The primary American Thanksgiving was held on December four, 1619, in Berkeley Hundred (Berkeley Plantation), Virginia. Thirty-eight English pilgrims arrived in America after a ten-week voyage below the management of Captain John Woodleaf.
The little English colony proclaimed in its charter that the day of the arrival on American soil could be remembered and celebrated every year as “a day of thanksgiving to God.” The charter declared:
“We ordaine that the day of our ships arrival at the place assigned for plantacon in the land of Virginia shall be yearly and perpetually saved holy as a day of thanksgiving to Almighty God.”

To the surprise of the settlers, he spoke the English language. Samoset was instrumental in serving to the pilgrims adapt to their new nation.

Prayer of Thanksgiving
“Thanksgiving is a day that we are reminded to be thankful for the issues that we have obtained. Although it could seem like little, sometimes, we have at all times bought something to be thankful for. I’d prefer to inform you the story about a man who I believe has a lot to be thankful for.”
On Thanksgiving, I Thank you
Lyrics by Johnny Cash
On Thanksgiving Day a household sat right down to have their meal.
There was little or no on the table, a number of things from the field.
No turkey or fancy dressing – some bread and slightly beans –
For the crops had been a failure and the times have been fairly lean.
The father bowed his head; it was their habit to say grace.
And a calmness came over his lined and wrinkled face.
Expensive Lord, he mentioned, we thanks, for the solar was heat at the moment
And we thank you for the singing of the birds and the laughing of the youngsters as they played.
And thank you for that neighbor of mine that fixed my plow.
Thanks for that previous plow horse. (We positive might use a cow.)
Thanks for the muscle; I can stand the ache.
Simply let me have Your blessing on all I undertake.
And that i thank you for this nation, too, O’ we have troubles now and pain,
However with your assist Lord, we’ll get back to the place the street is smooth again.
Thanks for all the love we have got and the power to work my land.
For there’s nothing Lord that I can’t do if you lend a helping hand.
Thank you for my good wife, Lord, the kids that I’ve obtained.
They usually love me for the issues that I’m, and they neglect the issues I am not.
And if somebody’s down and out, Lord, they usually’re praying You with heed,
Just send them over to see me, Lord, I bought greater than I want.
Immediately I worked so laborious my ft was aching;
I never stopped griping concerning the little bit of cash I used to be making.
On my manner house I passed a man and he was smiling,
And he was crippled. Lord, forgive me after i whine.
The world is mine and I’m doing fantastic.
I just need to say I thank you for the meals I eat,
And i thank you, Lord, for the place I sleep,
And that i thank you for my coat that keeps me warm.
Sure, and my feet that take me where I need to go
And my eyes that see the sunset’s glow
I thanks Lord the world is mine and I am doing positive.
Yes the world is mine and I am doing high-quality.
But some folks never appear to get completely satisfied.
Is it simply because that they are so busy getting mad?
Never taking time to be thankful or lend a serving to hand to a fellow man
Although his heart is stuffed with hate and his thoughts is planted on the second’s sound.
I simply need to say I thank you for the meals I eat
And that i thanks for the place I sleep
And i thank you, Lord, for the coat that retains me heat.
Sure, and my toes that take me where I wish to go,
And my eyes that see Your sunset’s glow,
And my ears that hear what they’d know.
I thank you, Lord, the world is mine and I am doing effective.
Simply need to let you know that the world is mine, Lord,
And that i thank you now and I’m doing superb.
