You alone are the Lord.
You made the skies and the heavens and all the stars.
You made the earth and the seas and everything in them.
You preserve them all, and the angels of heaven worship you. ~Nehemiah 9:6

MEMORIAL DAY


Feeling Patriotic this morning as I ponder the meaning of Memorial Day. I'm overwhelmed thinking of all the men (and women) who have died defending our wonderful country. I am dismayed when I think of those who now seek to destroy her. My prayer is that God will always bless America but I fear that as we get further and further away from God and His principles that he may withdraw his blessings. He certainly did that to Israel in the long ago. Some people think I'm too political but I have a hard time not responding when I see American flags removed from so many places because it offends some people or when I hear that the photos of George Washington are being removed from schools because it makes some students "uneasy".

I believe I mentioned before that another reason Memorial Day is special to me is that I was baptized on Memorial Day in 1948. That is also the year that Israel became a nation again. That was back before so many of the holidays, including Memorial Day was switched to a Monday. In 1948 Memorial Day fell on a Sunday.

So now, let's begin the linking. I know many will be busy celebrating with family and friends and may not have as much time to spend here as they usually do. I understand.
