On Memorial Day we Americans hang our flag, wear red shirts and blue shorts and remember our military men and women who have sacrificed for our country. That is a good thing to do.

Memorial Day is a patriotic holiday. It is also a time to remember others who have died; not just military folk; but all people whose lives have made this world; this country; this town; this family a better place to live.

Of course, the one we should most remember on Memorial Day and every day is the One who gave his life not only for our country and for our lives but for every person in every country in every age for our eternal lives. Jesus.

Happy Memorial Day to you all.

PRAYER: Heavenly Father, we humans so love to celebrate and find ways to remember important people and events. In all things, remind us that you so loved the world that you gave your only Son, Jesus, that whosoever believes in Him, should not perish, but have eternal life. Thank you, Jesus. Amen.

WHAT ABOUT YOU? Any special holiday plans?

I spent the day with Sarah--being her assistant in helping her set up her quarter's final sculpture project. It was fun being on a college campus for the day. I took my bike so I had the whole experience. Thank you to the military men and women who gave their lives so that I could enjoy a wonderful day of freedom with my daughter.

From Carols Quill said...

@ Pam - what a great time you must have had with Sarah. Our thanks to Daniel and your whole family for his service and our freedom!

I am so thankful that God protected my son so that he wasn't seriously hurt or killed.
