Happy Thanksgiving - 2019

Posted by

From all of us here at Vendors Tech, a Happy Thanksgiving to our many loyal and appreciated customers and friends! We would like to publicly thank Almighty God for the bountiful and blessed year He has bestowed upon us here, and upon each of you. We hope that we have been able to bless those we have served over the past year, and we look forward to making the most of the opportunity to do so again in the year to come.

Each year, we post as part of our Thanksgiving note, a past US Presidential Proclamation of Thanksgiving. President Grover Cleveland recognized the role God played in protecting, sustaining, and raising up this nation. We hope all of its citizens today will remember and acknowledge the same fact this year, and reflect on and rejoice in all their many God-bestowed blessings this Thanksgiving!

By the President of the United States, Grover Cleveland

A Proclamation:

It has long been the custom of the people of the United States, on a day in each year especially set apart for that purpose by their Chief Executive, to acknowledge the goodness and mercy of God and to invoke His continued care and protection.

In observance of such custom I, Grover Cleveland, President of the United States, do hereby designate and set apart Thursday, the 25th day of November instant, to be observed and kept as a day of thanksgiving and prayer.

On that day let all our people forego their accustomed employments and assemble in their usual places of worship to give thanks to the Ruler of the Universe for our continued enjoyment of the blessings of a free government, for a renewal of business prosperity throughout our land, for the return which has rewarded the labor of those who till the soil, and for our progress as a people in all that makes a nation great.

And while we contemplate the infinite power of God in earthquake, flood, and storm let the grateful hearts of those who have been shielded from harm through His mercy be turned in sympathy and kindness toward those who have suffered through His visitations.

Let us also in the midst of our thanksgiving remember the poor and needy with cheerful gifts and alms so that our service may by deeds of charity be made acceptable in the sight of the Lord.

In witness whereof I have hereunto set my hand and caused the seal of the United States to be affixed.

Done at the city of Washington, this 1st day of November, A.D. 1886, and of the Independence of the United States of America the one hundred and eleventh.

Grover Cleveland, President, 1886
