Happy Thanksgiving, #WAAdventists!

Start your day of Thanksgiving reflecting on these words of scripture:

Psalm 100

A psalm. For giving grateful praise.

Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth.
  Worship the Lord with gladness;
  come before him with joyful songs.
Know that the Lord is God.
  It is he who made us, and we are his[a];
  we are his people, the sheep of his pasture.

Enter his gates with thanksgiving
  and his courts with praise;
  give thanks to him and praise his name.
For the Lord is good and his love endures forever;
  his faithfulness continues through all generations.

We wish you God's best
as you celebrate Thanksgiving.

You may have had an amazing year. You may have had a tough year. You may be surrounded by family and friends (who are like family to you), or quite alone. Your heart may be overflowing with thanksgiving, or struggling to find something, anything to the thankful about.

Whatever your day may look like, whatever your year looks like, we are praying for you. Your #WAAdventist family cares about you.

God be with you today...and every you seek to grow spiritually, mentally, emotionally, and physically.
