Hello dear ones. We are safely home, thank the good Lord. May you be enjoying this special day ... Memorial Day ... and may we take time to reflect and remember the men and women who gave the ultimate sacrifice as they served our country ... their lives. May we also remember those who served and came home ... my husband was a Soldier and this day is special to him. May we also remember the men and women who serve in foreign lands today. Without them, where might the United States be?
This was printed in our church bulletin yesterday:
"...For the most part, they carried themselves with poise and a kind of dignity. Now and then, there were times when panic set in ... they carried grief, terror, longing, and their reputations. They were afraid of dying, but too afraid to show it. They carried the emotional baggage of men and women who might die at any moment. They carried the weight of the world, and the weight of every free citizen of America. They carried each other..."
And then, may we remember the One who paid a price none of us could pay ...
the One who died that we might live ... not for just a few years but for eternity.
He battled our soul's enemy and won. How much we have to be thankful for.
I shall write more tomorrow. May God bless each of you.
