New Month/New Theme

Can you believe it’s November already? This is my husband’s favorite time of the year.  The air is turning crisp and cool (he likes cool, I like warm).  The fall decorations have been brought out at church — pumpkins, gourds, apples, and other symbols of a successful harvest surround the altar area. The scenery is beautiful as the leaves change colors. We’re looking forward to our annual November trip to South Carolina to visit our daughter, Kate and her husband.

Most of all, November is a time for giving thanks.  As the end of the year approaches, it’s a good time to stop and reflect.  Am I thankful?  (I should be).  Why am I thankful? (God has given me many good gifts, starting with His son, Jesus).  How do I show my thanks? (do I worship and praise Him?  Do I pass His love on?)

All of these questions are food for thought, and I know the Lutheran Ladies will be discussing these ideas and more this month.  So spend some quality time giving thanks, read our posts, and tell us how giving thanks makes a difference in your life and the lives of those around you.

God loves you and so do we!
