Happy Thanksgiving!

Freedom from Fear, 1943
War bond poster
Story illustration for The Saturday Evening Post, March 13, 1943

These have been some trying days not just at home, but for our men and women abroad. We pray for their safety and strength for their families. We pray for our country and the continued freedom we initially fought for, well over over 200 hundred years ago. But, for today, for tomorrow, for this years Thanksgiving celebration on Thursday, it is my prayer that we pray for freedom from fear, and that we can hold this beautiful image which Normal Rockwell painted for the Saturday Evening Post, over 60 years ago close in our hearts.

Psalm 23
