Happy Memorial Day

On Monday, May 27, we once again honor the memory of those servicemembers who died in war.  They sacrificed all for their country, for their fellow men, for their families.

The unofficial first day of summer, It is a festive day for parades, picnics, and fireworks. It is also a day to remember those who paid the ultimate sacrifice for freedom. All gave some but some gave all. It is a time to   remember the courageous acts of men and women who laid it all down for us.

We put flags on the graves of these heroes and thank God for them.
It is a time to pray for the families they left behind, the men and women who served by staying and keeping the home fires bright.

It is also a good time to pray for the victims of wars everywhere, the innocent civilians caught in the crossfire. Pray for the victims of senseless violence. 

Remember in prayer the families that lost loved ones to tornadoes, floods, fires, earthquakes and other disasters around the world.

Remember also that Jesus paid a price for us, in that while perfect and without sin, He sacrificed his life that we might spend eternity with Him.

Wishing a happy Memorial Day to all my readers. Even if your country does not celebrate this, take a little time to remember the heroes who gave all for you. And for the savior who died for all men and women everywhere.
