What are you doing this weekned for Memorial Day? If you are like us, I’m guessing that your plans include a pool, a grill, a gathering of some type,
and/or some delicious cooking. I’m looking forward to every bit of it! But thanks to some recent e-mails, I’m again reminded of just why we have this coming Monday off…
None of what is in this post is original. It’s simply a compilation of a few emails of late that have touched my heart and reminded me to be grateful for the many, many who made and are making daily (and often, thankless) sacrifices for our country.
May God have mercy on the United States of America, and may He pour His grace over those whose loved ones gave their lives for our freedom.
Happy Memorial Day to you, my friends~
Sacrifice is the theme of Memorial Day. The sacrifice of individuals. The sacrifice of families. The sacrifice of communities. The sacrifice of a nation. Memorial Day is a time when America’s war dead remind us of the price for freedom.
John Quincy Adams once said, “You will never know how much it has cost my generation to preserve your freedom. I hope you make good use of it.”
May God continue to bless America on behalf of those who gave their lives for her.
…And we are so grateful…
