Kathy and I want to thank our Nation’s Warriors for their selfless commitment to our country’s freedom and safety! Major holidays such as Thanksgiving often present a challenge for military personnel who can be stationed far from home and their families on the holidays. For many people in the military community, they will celebrate Thanksgiving in a different manner every year, depending on leave status, and current operations.
On this Thanksgiving Day, as we gather around the dinner table with family and friends to share good food, warm laughter, and the happy memories, please remember the many families, whose loved ones serve in the Armed Forces, as this year’s Thanksgiving celebration will not be complete.
A chair at the table will remain empty because, they have someone far from home serving our country.
So, as those of us who are blessed to be with our families, please pray for the homes that have an empty chair at the table. Also, offer a special prayer of thanksgiving and ask God’s Blessings for the brave men and women of our Armed Forces, whose service and sacrifice make the world a better and safer place.
Lastly, say a very special prayer for those homes that have an empty chair that will forever remain vacant.
