This Thanksgiving 2009, without my maternal ancestors, would NOT have been mine.......as the saying goes, 'we bring our baggage' with us, some we need to get rid of. Our 'ancestors' literally, did bring their 'baggage' with them to this country of USA.....literally, that was ALL they had to bring.
Ancestors leaving the 'old world', for the U.S.A.
Matthew 19:14 CHRIST JESUS said, Let the 'little children' come unto me, do not forbid them, for of such , is the Kingdom of Heaven. Matthew 18:3 - Jesus said, Assuredly, I say to you, unless you are converted & become as little children, you will by no means, enter the 'kingdom of Heaven'. v.4,5........also 1 John 3: 1-3 -children of GOD - Psalm 127:v.3 - behold, children are a hertage from the LORD, the fruit of the womb is reward. Psalm 127 is a mere 5 verses of instruction from GOD.
