Today we are thankful O Lord. And we remember…
We remember this past year and remember the challenges and are thankful for the accomplishments.
We remember the trials and are thankful for your mercies
We remember the losses and are thankful for Your provision
We remember those that are no longer with us today, but are thankful for all the blessings You poured into our lives for having known them
We remember the storms and are thankful for the sunshine and beauty that still stands in this world You created
We remember the family struggles and are thankful for the time to put them aside and gather together in Your presence
We remember the strife while we are thankful and hopeful for peace
Lord, be with every family today as they gather, and especially watch over those who have no family or home, those whose homes have been lost.
May all come to know You, and learn to love You with all their hearts, all their souls and with all their strength. And may we all learn to love each other as You have loved us…
