From Pine Grove Baptist
Thoughts for the Month of November:
 
The calendar shows 4 days this month that we need to be aware of:
 
TIME TO CHANGE OUR CLOCKS BACK - Saturday, November 6
Change your clock before you go to bed Saturday night, November 5. You need to set your clock back one hour. A key to remember what way you are to move the clock, either forward or backward is "Spring forward and Fall back".
ELECTION DAY, Tuesday, November 8 
Every registered voter is encouraged to vote. Those who vote are encouraged to vote for the candidates that stand for our Christian values. 
VETERAN'S DAY - Friday, November 11
This is to honor men and women who have served in the US Armed Service. Veterans Day celebrations in the US include parades and speeches. Special services are held at the Tomb of The Unknown Soldier in Arlington National Cemetery, Arlington, VA. In 1919, President Woodrow Wilson proclaimed November 11 as Armistice Day to remind Americans of the tragedies of war. A law adopted in 1938 made the day a federal holiday. In 1954, Congress changed the name to Veterans Day to honor all US veterans. 
THANKSGIVING DAY - Thursday, November 24
Congress ruled that after 1941, the 4th Thursday in November would be observed as Thanksgiving Day and would be a legal holiday.  In the US, Thanksgiving is usually a family day, celebrated with big dinners and joyous reunions. The very mention of Thanksgiving often calls up memories of kitchens and pantries crowded with good things to eat. Thanksgiving is also a time for serious religious thinking, church services, and prayer. 
Give thanks unto the Lord, call upon his name, make known his deeds among the people -
1 Chronicles 16:8
LET US GIVE THANKS...
...  for God's grace and forgiveness
...  for God's blessing in our lives
...  for the freedom to worship as we see fit
...  for God's promise of provision in response to our giving
...  for the modern technology which enables us to receive and share the Gospel
...  for the guidance of God's Word, the Bible
...  for the work of the Holy Spirit directing our pays day-to-day
...  for the sustenance, the shelter, even the clothing which we so take for granted
...  for the strength to carry on
...  for the 'hope of glory' (Colossians 1:27).
HAVE A SAFE, BLESSED AND THANKFUL THANKSGIVING!!
