I am thankful for the freedom to worship. My faith, religion, and denomination (yes, they are separate things) are very important to me. It's hard to even imagine not being allowed to worship in the way of my choosing.
I am thankful for the opportunity to work with the children in our congregation. This summer that extended to the children in our community through my work as director of our Vacation Bible School program. What a wonderful opportunity! The children bless my life!
