September to Remember

Good Memories are Part of the Treasures of My Heart

… singing and making melody to the Lord with your heart (Ephesians 5:19b).

Often during the Divine Service, I remember my dad as we prepare to sing the Sanctus – “joining with angels and archangels and all the company of heaven”. Dad liked to sing. He had a booming bass voice and could be heard singing in church, while he did chores, or drove the car. One of my treasured memories is accompanying my father on the piano while he sang one of his favorite hymns – he had many favorites. He sang loud enough to cover any mistakes I made.

As we learn how our LWML Mission Grants help bring souls to Christ, it is good for us to shout and sing for joy. We know we will be joining with all the redeemed in heaven to eternally sing the praises of our God. On September 13, you have the opportunity to give to the LWML Mission Goal so others may know Jesus. May there always be a song in your heart as you reflect on God’s unfailing love.
