My husband and I are avid hikers and bikers and love to be outside enjoying God’s beautiful world. And they were calling to one another: “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord Almighty; the whole earth is full of his glory” (Isaiah 6:3 NIV). My most thankful prayers are made while outside enjoying God’s gifts.
As I write this, it’s April 17. Michigan is having a late snowstorm. I am grateful to be forced to accomplish tasks that have been waiting for my attention. Being thankful throughout the day is getting easier as I practice. give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus (1 Thessalonians 5:18 NIV).
LWML has helped me focus on daily devotions, keeping Christ in all my activities. In His name my focus is on the needs of others — working on a mission project; filling my Mite Box; assisting with funeral luncheons; or working on fundraisers with LWML sisters and brothers. I’m looking forward to Milwaukee — seeing people live their faith with hugs and smiles — putting Christ first with their actions. Inspiring devotions and Bible studies will fill me up as I journey home afterward.
Thank You, Lord, for the opportunities to serve. Thank You for LWML!
LWML English District President
