Veterans Day

Today is Veterans Day - a day for us to honor and thank all who have served in the United States Armed Forces.  It is also Remembrance Day in Canada.

Thank you to all who have and who are serving our nations that we might enjoy freedom!

Today is the International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church - a day to pray for those who face prison, torture, and death because in their countries Christianity is not welcome.

Dear Lord, their prayer is to stand firm and honor You - not to be hidden and safe, but to be bold witnesses to Your Grace, Mercy, and Salvation. Please abundantly bless my brothers and sisters in Christ as they serve You in their countries!

This month is National Adoption Month - raising awareness of the needs of children in Foster Care who are waiting to be adopted.

Adoption - one small word that holds so much hope and so much fear for so many people - young and old. Thank you to all the bold, brave parents who step out to answer the call to adopt. You are changing the world - one life at a time!

Thanksgiving will be celebrated in the United States on November 22.  For many this will be a day to gather together and give thanks to God for the many blessings that we have.

I have a long list of blessings to give thanks for - how about you?
Kathy

How blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD,
the people whom he has chosen to be his special possession.
Psalm 33:12 NET

  6. Splendid Little Stars, I believe that if we really think about our lives, all of us could find many blessings to add to our "thankful list"!
