Father, today we thank You for those who have blessed us who, for any number of reasons, cannot be with us at this time. In this season of gratitude, we thank You for those who are away because they have chosen to make sacrifices so that we can continue to celebrate in freedom.
We thank You for those who have gone before us – those we will never forget, who will always be part of our hearts… We thank You for those we never knew, but whose lives have set shining examples for us. We thank You for the blessing of every soul that has crossed our path and the mark each one has left on our lives. amen. angie <><
