Happy Thanksgiving

It is Thanksgiving tomorrow and I have so much to be thankful for.  I have been graced with a wonderful vocation that I am so grateful for.  I give thanks everyday for the opportunity to serve God and others through this wonderful way of life.  As we sit down tomorrow with our family, we will pray not only for all that God has graced us with, but for those who enrich our lives by their presence.  We will pause for those who do not have enough to eat and ask that our God will bestow on them the blessings that they need.                                                                                  

We thank our Service men and women who fought for the freedom to allow us to enjoy one another, and the freedom to celebrate this holiday.

In Thanksgiving:    
     For each new morning with its light,
     For rest and shelter of the night,
     For health and food,
     For love and friends,
     For everything Thy goodness sends.
       Ralph Waldo Emerson

I wish everyone a Blessed Thanksgiving.  Thank you for the blessing you are to my life.

  Your Sister in Christ,
    Sister John Paul
