September to Remember

A Day to Remember: 9/11

Most of us vividly remember September 11, 2001. We are not able to recall by name each of those who served that day — first responders rescuing victims, co-workers helping others, or strangers praying for strangers. On that day twenty years ago, there were multitudes who let their light shine brightly, thus glorifying our Father.

I especially remember firefighters on this day. My father, a teacher by profession, was a volunteer firefighter from 1958 until his passing in 2019. In both his professional and volunteer lives, he was an inspiration to many. He instilled in my siblings and me an attitude of serving. Today I remember my dad and all the firefighters who have served as “Shining Lights.”

For this LWML September-to-Remember, consider donating to the LWML Mission Goal in honor of someone who was a “Shining Light” in your life.

In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven (Matthew 5:16).

To God be the Glory!
