Happy Memorial Day
seems kind of strange to me…
it’s almost as if I am saying
Happy day remembering the loved one you lost.
Yes, it’s possible to have happy memories of loved ones,
but on a day like today, it’s hard to say be happy.
I know there are a lot of verses that might be more suited for today…
but, this is the one that God laid on my heart.
Therefore, be self-controlled
and sober minded for the sake of your prayers.
Above all, keep loving one another earnestly,
since love covers a multitude of sins.
1 Peter 4:7-8
We are not guaranteed tomorrow…
the soldiers and airmen who went to work,
and didn’t come home to their loved ones
are a sobering reminder of this.
Whatever you do,
work at it with all your heart,
as working for the Lord,
not human masters.
These sailors, soldiers and airmen,
they did this.
They gave their all…
and their families,
well, they didn’t get tomorrow.
