Memorial Day…

I hear people say “Happy Memorial Day.”

I hear some people thanking veterans for their service on Memorial Day. (We should do that every day)

A whole mess of people think Memorial Day is just a long weekend for BBQ, beer, hot dogs and other fun and games.

Memorial day is a solemn celebration of those who gave everything, gave their lives, to defend out nation and our freedom.

This is Memorial Day

Today we honor our dead, we honor their sacrifice and give thanks that they were willing to pay the ultimate price. Those who were willing to lay down their lives for others deserve this day. After all their sacrifice and their love was greater than anyone’s…

Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.

-John 15:13

Enjoy your time with your family and friends but use this as a moment to teach them and to give thanks and and celebrate our nation’s greatest super heroes.

God bless
