Hello from LWML! 

Each of us has a vocation in life. It may be to raise our children to love the Lord and use their gifts in service to the world. It may be to use the knowledge and skills God has given us to dispense healing medicine or design affordable housing. Our work, our vocation, is specific to each of us as God has empowered and gifted us to serve.

Our community is served by many who give of their time unselfishly so that we might live in safety. When you read the devotion this month, Working with Joy, pray for those who serve in our community — public safety officers, medical personnel, teachers, pastors, everyone who takes time to touch the lives of others and makes our world just a little bit better.

Have you taken the time to say “thank you” to any of these special people? Saying “thank you” can sometimes be taken for granted. We “assume” everyone knows we are grateful for their kindness and sacrifice, but unless we say it — how will they know? Maybe this month you will be moved to write a note of thanks to someone who has offered a kindness or service to you — your home health care aid, a police officer, your child’s teacher, or someone else who has lived their calling to serve.

May God bless you this month as you reflect on the service you have given to others and the service you have received. 

Your Sister in Christ,
