   President's Message

PWRW Ellen photo.jpg
The year that is drawing towards its close has been filled with the blessings of fruitful fields and healthful skies. To these bounties, which are so constantly enjoyed that we are prone to forget the source from which they come, others have been added, which are so extraordinary a nature, that they cannot fail to penetrate and soften even the heart which is habitually insensible to the ever watchful providence of Almighty God. In the midst of a civil war, of unequalled magnitude and severity, peace has been preserved with all nations, harmony has prevailed everywhere except in the theatre of military conflict. Needful diversions of wealth and of strength from the fields
of peaceful industry to the national defense, have not arrested the plough, the shuttle or the ship; the axe has enlarged the borders of our settlements, and the mines, as well of iron and coal as of the precious metals, have yielded, even more abundantly than heretofore. And our population has steadily increased. No human counsel hath devised nor hath any mortal hand worked out these great things. They are the gracious gifts of the Most High God, who, while dealing with us in anger for our sins, hath nevertheless remembered mercy. It has seemed to me fit and proper that they should be 
solemnly, reverently and gratefully acknowledged as with one heart and one voice by the whole American People. I do the4refore invite my fellow citizens in every part of the United States, to set apart and observe the last Thursday of November next, as a day of Thanksgiving and Praise to our beneficent Father who dwelleth in the Heavens.


This was written by Abraham Lincoln in October 1863, in the midst of a war that pitted state against state, citizen against citizen in a fight that tore our nation apart and took so long to restore. Our battles continue, for there is much to restore, buy may we remember that we ll have much to appreciate and for which to be thankful.

Work is not always required.....there is such a thing a sacred idleness, the cultivation of which is not fearfully neglected.                                                            George Macdonald

I wish you peace and blessings and time for sacred idleness  with the ones you hold dear.
