Is Thanksgiving a day on the calendar or a way of life? This year the Thanksgiving holiday will take on a different look or feel for all of us. With all of the disastrous fires in the northern and western part of the U.S., the terrible hurricanes from Texas, the southern coast of the U.S. and Puerto Rico, and the awful tragedy in Las Vegas this Thanksgiving will have a new meaning. The LWML motto of “Serve the Lord with Gladness” certainly holds true for those who can help. We of the LWML and the church will not be the only people that can provide aid to those who are suffering, but through us they will be seeing Jesus with skin on. The help can take all forms but we know that our Lord is with us at all times and through all circumstances.
Praise and Thanksgiving to God!
