Memorial Day – May 25, 2020

 

May the Lord Bless and Keep Them Memorial Day May 25 2020

On this Memorial Day, we are thankful for the sacrifice so many throughout our history have made, for the men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice and for their families who had to carry on without them. It is a sacrifice that is easy to forget. For those who have it, freedom is like oxygen. It is something we just have. Many will not understand just how precious either is, until they are at risk of being taken away. There are encroachments being made on our freedoms right now by those who think they know better. This is a conversation for another time. Today we remember a sacrifice made and a debt we cannot repay. Today we pray for the God of heaven to bless the families of those who have lost loved ones while serving our great nation. We pray for Him to bless and comfort the walking wounded who are still with us and bless their families as well. It is our prayer that we remember their sacrifice and the precious gift of freedom every day, not just once a year or when they are in danger of being taken away. Amen
