A day set aside to remember just what our freedom has cost – the lives that have been lost, the sacrifices that have been made, the tears shed, the prayers ascended, every thing, big and little, that had gone into building this nation we proudly call our home. There are so many videos out there that show the heartache and sacrifice and love and dedication that so many men and women have given for OUR FREEDOM. And not just those who have served but those who love them and stay behind at home while they are off on deployment, defending the FREEDOM we love so much.
I give my heartfelt thanks, gratitude and support to those men and women in uniform, their families and friends, and to the families and friends of our fallen heros.
I also want to ask you to look back farther. Back to the beginning of time and remember all the Memorials God gave us, all the Memorials God had His people set up as reminders to them and their descendants. Reminders of His love and provision. And let’s also turn our minds towards what we are leaving as Memorials for our children. What will they look at in the years to come that will remind them of what we believed and what we stood for?
Have a blessed Memorial Day. Praise God for His care and love for us. Feel deeply the appreciation for those who have given their lives so our Country can be free. Thank those around you who are an active part of keeping this Nation free. Pray for our leaders that they will turn back to God. Bless your family. Be safe.
