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.
