Over the years, we at Homecoming Magazine have received so many kind messages from our readers, telling us how they have been blessed by the Gaithers' music, an article in Homecoming Magazine, or maybe a particular Homecoming artist or group. We just want to take a moment today to say a big THANK YOU to all of you.

Your stories encourage us, too ... Some of you have written to share how God has lifted your heart during hard times through scripture, song, or an encouraging word. When we read these stories, it strengthens our faith, too. Just as we hope our work blesses you, you continually bless us, and we are so grateful.

A thought from the Word ...

Numbers 6:24-26
The Lord bless you and keep you; he Lord make His face to shine upon you and be gracious to you; the Lord lift up His countenance upon you and give you peace.
