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.
