A Thanksgiving Quote “He didn’t get there on his own”

November 16, 2009 · Print This Article

Alex Haley, the author of “Roots,” had an unusual picture hanging on his office wall. It was a picture of a turtle on top of a fence post. When asked, “Why is that there?” Alex Haley answered, “Every time I write something significant, every time I read my words & think that they are wonderful, & begin to feel proud of myself, I look at the turtle on top of the fence post & remember that he didn’t get there on his own. He had help.” That is the basis of thankfulness – to remember that we got here with the help of God, & that He is the provider of every blessing we have.

Remember to give Thanks to God This Thanksgiving adn be Blessed
