DALLAS — Gov. Mike Huckabee, honorary national chairman of My Faith Votes, releases a statement reflecting on Thanksgiving Day:
“Here’s the undeniable, historical truth about Thanksgiving: It’s an American holiday explicitly created to remind us that God is the great source of every blessing. Time after time, especially in the face of adversity, our forefathers turned to God — not only to give thanks but to also humbly repent before Him. They understood God’s blessings follow those who obey and seek Him.
“This Thanksgiving is an opportunity for us to also turn to God in gratitude and repentance. In fact, I believe there’s never been a more urgent time for us to remember the Judeo-Christian values of our faith that have kept us on a path of blessing. Let’s not waste this national moment — it could turn America around.”
