This Week's Article
Fall, that wonderful time of year! It is time to realize and give thanks to God, the Source of all our blessings.
Are you aware of all the blessings God has given your local congregation and LWML group? I am thinking about a young woman or ethnic woman who may be interested in participating in LWML. Someone who is interested in sharing the Gospel and the Savior’s love with those in her community and the world. I am sure you can think of at least one person. I encourage you to talk to her and
find out her interest in attending the next LWML Convention.
The Committee on Young Women and the Heart to Heart Sisters Committees are, as are all LWML Committees, working on their programs for the Des Moines Convention in 2015. Look around your congregation and see if there is someone who would benefit from attending and seeing how God has blessed the LWML. Then send her!
Verse of the Week
Yet to all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God (John 1:12).
Last Week's Article
When my daughter was about seven, she would say, “Ma, if I wake up in the morning can we ...”
That “if” was disturbing to me. Of course she would wake up! So I would reply, “When you wake up!” She insisted on “if,” while I was only comforted by “when.” I asked her why she said “if.” She replied, “We always say, ‘If I should die before I wake, I pray the Lord my soul to take.’” That showed me that she was listening and learning.
I turned to God’s Word and I listened this time. I was comforted in knowing that if we wake up to a new day, we should rejoice and be glad. If we die, as Christians we yet live and we will rejoice in that day also. And again I say, “Rejoice!”
