Memorial Day Thanks!

Happy Memorial Day everyone!

I am just reflecting on the reasons why I am celebrating this holiday today.

Thankful to the numerous woman and men who sacrifice their lives for ALL people, both American and abroad every single day

Thankful to every person who has stayed up all night so that we could sleep in peace

Thankful to every person who has stood guard to protect the innocent

Thankful to every person who has left families and loved ones behind to fight for a GOOD cause called Freedom

It's more than just US that live in this world and it's time we recognize all military who fight for a good and righteous cause.  War is harsh but there's a time for it as God speaks of it in Ecc...a time of war, and a time of peace.

Today, I am reflective of the peace that war afforded over 2000 years ago.  So as we enjoy our families and partake of BBQ, enjoy cool beverages at home, by the lake, or where ever your destination, let's remember the Vets who gave their lives for ALL freedom, both here in America and abroad -- but most of all, I am thankful for the ultimate sacrifice that Jesus paid on behalf of God's people by fighting the biggest war that gave us the ultimate freedom called...salvation!!!

May God bless America and everyone who belongs to Christ!!!
