| Lesson from the Journey and the Garden…

| Remembering & Giving Thanks

If we remember deeply and truly, we will know whom to thank.—Frederick Buechner. As you gather around the table with friends and family to celebrate Thanksgiving, may you be blessed by recalling all that Jesus Christ has done in your life. May the memories of God’s goodness and steadfast love energize you to live faithfully as a child of God. May you faithfully share with the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the Lord, His power, and the wonders He has done (Psalms 78:4).
