Another day! It is beautiful in my little part of the world. I am so grateful to our Elohim for all that he does for me! He is so good..His love and mercy endures for ever!
So today is Kislev 6, 5773. It is the third day and it is called Yom Shlisshi.....Yom Shlee' Shee.
There are only two days till Thanksgiving now. If you read my blog yesterday I needed to get he refrigerator and pantry cleaned out...I did. I threw out a lot of stuff BUT I also found a lot of ingredients for our dinner.
Being Messianic...believing in the Hebrew roots of our faith as opposed to the Christian faith has meant giving up the holidays of the church. Some feel that Thanksgiving should be given up too. I am not there yet....Although I do feel that Sukkot is our thanksgiving and celebrating time and I would make one day of it our official thanksgiving day if my family would! I do NOT believe our national thanksgiving day is pagan though. I believe the Pilgrims gave thanks and celebrated it as a type of Sukkot or Feast of Tabernacles.
Here is an article that argues that Thanksgiving is NOT Pagan.
Here is another expressing that the first Thanksgiving might be associated with Sukkot...as I believe.
Just to be fair, here is a site that is convinced Thanksgiving day is Pagan
