As Memorial Day comes upon us, we pause to remember those who have given of themselves to defend the freedoms that we enjoy. So many times they are taken for granted, in this country.
We thank our Veterans this Memorial Day. Let us never forget the causes for which they fought. What they gave of themselves, especially those who gave their all, their very lives, the true price of freedom that we all enjoy. Just as our Savior gave his very life to free us from the oppression of sin.
Our Lord said; “The greatest love one can have, is to lay down his life for his friends.” That is what our Lord did for all of us.
There is a beautiful poem by Lawrence Binyon which states; “They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old. Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun and in the morning, we will remember them.”
We ask our Lord to bless those who left this soil, to serve their country in wartime, and in peace. May our Lord Jesus always walk with those who did not return. To my fellow veterans, to all who served and are serving, may God Bless you. May we have the courage to stand up for the freedoms we enjoy.
