I am sure many of you have made a list of things for which you are thankful. I’d like to briefly share some of mine below.
Number one on the list is my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I do my best every day, but even that falls short all too often. I am very thankful for His grace, mercy, and forgiveness.
I am thankful for supportive parents. Because of your close involvement in your child’s life, we have the opportunity to partner in raising your children. That’s a privilege. It’s one of the things that makes our school community special.
I am very thankful for teachers who give of their time and frankly work for a lower salary than they could get other places. God has blessed us richly with a staff that is dedicated to ministry with children and their families.
I am thankful for Epiphany Lutheran Church and the support given to the school through the use of space, provision for utilities and insurance, and even financial support.
I am thankful for this country in which we can worship God without fear of violent persecution.
I’m thankful for a wonderful family including my wife, three children, their spouses, and six grandchildren. God has richly blessed us.
I know that you are thankful for your family is well. I hope this next week will be a time during which you can celebrate that thankfulness and enjoy their company.
In His Service,
