2015-Five days before Thanksgiving Day
Thankful. I include you, family and reading friends "afar off." Young and older, dear ones, I give thanks to God for you always. I pray for your hearts, that they be strengthened in faith by the Father's power. In these days, "dangers, toils, and snares" involve us. I resolve to pray for enemies in the strength of Christ, the Redeemer of souls in the divine power of Almighty God. Thankful. For my husband's words yesterday about guarding quick reactions and words in times of divisions among citizens and friends: "We are Christians."
