Give thanks and remember!
Happy Memorial Day! I'm hoping that most of the Monday morning readers are doing something lovely today. It's so beautiful this weekend so I hope you are enjoying sunshine and beautiful outdoor events and fun where you are too.
Todays post is short, simple and important. Even though I'm not in school today, I am going to give you some homework. It doesn't matter where you complete it, I just ask that you remember to do it this Memorial Day. The assignment is to recall the reason we enjoy this day. Please spend some quiet time in prayer remembering...
*Remember and pray for all those who gave their life for our country. Are we honoring their sacrifice by defending the freedoms and privileges they gave their lives for?
* Remember those who make decisions about our military action. Pray that God will grant them a spirit of peace, justice and mercy as they make decisions.
*Pray for peace; peace in our families, our country and our world.
*Pray for our President and Congress. It's easy to complain about them but how often do we remember to specifically pray that God will inspire, uplift and bless them?
God Bless the USA...really! Spend some time thinking about and praying for that today, it's so much more than a slogan or a line from a song...today let it be our heartfelt prayer!
Blessings on your day!
