Give thanks to God

The holidays are upon us. Let us take time to count our many blessings, our beautiful farming community, the fertile soil and all its people. Let’s pray to God that we can keep it that way.

It has been a bountiful harvest of grain. Let us give thanks to God. There are still some crops in the field to be harvested. Let us pray that they can soon be brought in.

Let us be remindful of the destruction and disasters and the loss of lives this year in our nation. Let us pray for all people.

This holy season, a joyful time of year, the birth of the babe in the manger, our savior, let us let him into our hearts that our lives will be filled with love, joy and peace.

Thanks to our God,

Ruth Hoepf, Tiffin
