Memorial Day

Posted: May 28, 2018

Today is a day set aside to remember with gratitude and pride those who have served and died for our country and our freedom.  "The land of the free because of the brave."  Let's remember them. 
I love American patriotism and the feeling of unity when we respectfully remember our history and our honor our symbols of freedom.  Today, I thank God for the freedoms we enjoy in this nation.  I also thank God for HIS freedom, that is available to everyone, everywhere, and is not dictated by any government.  Let's show honor and respect today to our land, our neighbors, and most importantly, our King.

"This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers and sisters."  1 John 3:16

Lord, I pray for my country today and for all my brothers and sisters in Christ.  Comfort those who have lost loved ones, and give us a heart of love for one another.  Be with our leaders at every level, and let Your peace and love shine through us, always pointing to You.  Amen.
