Many will ask today, “Where you were on 9/11?”
And we will remember and share our stories.
I sew with a group of teachers, the Apple Patch Quilters. We present quilts to those in need of a caring touch — those who have a major illness or who have lost a loved one, and more quilts for those special, joyful occasions.
We recently completed a Quilt of Valor® to present to a veteran who fought overseas following 9/11. It is our small way to say, “Thank You!” and to let him know that we remember his service to our nation.
LWML Women in Mission can also remember those who have served or are currently serving in the military. Send a card or a care package, listen to their stories, honor their service with a donation to the LCMS Ministry to the Armed Forces (Mission Grant #3), and finally, remember to praise and thank God for their service and for their safe return home.
Remember the days of old; consider the years of many generations; ask your father, and he will show you, your elders, and they will tell you (Deuteronomy 32:7).
