As Karyn Lynn Grant and I move on to our 11th interview of the 2019 The Year of Joy Series, we find ourselves in the month of November where many celebrate thanksgiving with glad and happy hearts, we trust.
Wikipedia’s definition of Thanksgiving:
“Thanksgiving Day is a national holiday celebrated on various dates in the United States, Canada some of the Caribbean islands, and Liberia. It began as a day of giving thanks and sacrifice for the blessing of the harvest and of the preceding year. Similarly named festival holidays occur in Germany and Japan. Thanksgiving is celebrated on the second Monday of October in Canada and on the fourth Thursday of November in the United States, and around the same part of the year in other places. Although Thanksgiving has historical roots in religious and cultural traditions, it has long been celebrated as a secular holiday as well.”
So, today Karyn has led us to our topic:, A Merry Heart in the Mourning:
“When the Spirit of Praise, Rejoicing and Faith Becomes the Heart”
