A Message from President, Jeanne Schimmelmann
 

Are You Thankful?

I have a plaque hanging on my bathroom wall. It is the perfect place because I see it first thing in the morning and last thing before I go to bed. Written on the plaque are these words; "What if…you woke up TODAY with only the THINGS you thanked God for YESTERDAY". What would be missing in your life if you had not said thank you?

Would you still have your pastor? Pastors are an important part of our spiritual and emotional life. We had wonderful, caring pastors at the 2018 LWML Ohio District Convention. Pastor Ryan Peterson dramatically led us from walking in the light into loving and living in the light. Pastor Donald Beaumont and Pastor Jimmy Riley preached beautiful, moving sermons at our worship services. Pastor Daniel Herb conducted an informative interest session "The Creed as Outlined for Outreach". Pastor Mark Khola served the convention as Host Committee Pastoral Counselor as well as the Celebrant at the Friday worship service. Other pastors offered assistance, guidance, support, and hugs throughout the weekend. Have you thanked God for your pastor today?

Do you enjoy music? Would you miss music if you never heard it again? Music played an important part in our praising the Lord during the convention. The choir sang with such delight and joy that the congregation was "dancing' in their seats. The instrumental music provided by the Season Sax Quartet added an extra element of honor and glory to our worship service. Tears flowed as Gary Hurst played his electric violin as we sang hymns of praise. We rejoiced as we sang, and God heard our voices. Do you ever thank God for the music that enlivens your life?

Have you laughed today? Laughter is an amazing gift from God. Elaine Bickel brought laughter and enjoyment to our business meetings as she ‘found" her way into our hearts with her interruptions. She looked for bugs, discovered the Wires (YWRs), and walked in the light. What a pleasure to laugh and rejoice as we celebrated being with our Lord. Be sure to thank God for that joy in your life!

Is your heart overflowing with love? Our hearts were full of love for our God and for each other as we gathered together in Dublin. We shared that love through our Ingatherings that benefitted homeless women and disaster victims from Hurricane Harvey. We demonstrated that love during the Servant Events by assembling packets for hospitalized children, marking Bibles, and giving blood. We pledged that love through our mite collections to fully fund seven (7) grants and 80% of the eighth grant. We rejoiced in that love through hugs, smiles, tears and laughter. God's love was in, around and through everything at the convention.  Are you thankful for the love that comes from God?

God blesses us immeasurably more than we could ever ask for or imagine. May we always have grateful hearts and words of thanks for all He does and continues to do for us.

THANK YOU, GOD!  


Your sister in Christ,
Jeanne Schimmelmann
