A time to love and a time to hate, a time for war and a time for peace. Ecc. 3:8
Today is Memorial Day for me. You will probably read this several days after. I love our flag and a good parade, but I so love our Heavenly Father who holds the future and us in His Hands. When you are as old as me, you will realize life is made up of good times, bad times, and very bad times. We think of war definitely as a very bad time, but God said there would be wars.
I took the time today to read some of the stories of our brave men and women who fought for our freedom. We should never take for granted what they did for all of us. I, then, decided to look at some pictures of our soldiers in action - in water, in cold and hot, no food, no sleep (a lack of almost any of the comforts we have on a daily basis).
If you take a trip to any VA facility, you will see young and old soldiers without limbs. They will be on scooters and in wheel chairs, but most of the time they are smiling and not complaining. The last time I went with my husband, who is a veteran, we had the privilege of sitting with a vet who was dying with Agent Orange. He was so sick. I can’t begin to imagine all of the after effects of war!
Dear Veterans, Policemen, Firemen, All of you who put your lives on the Line:
We can never repay you for your service. You are remarkable
people who deserve honor and a good pay check. God bless
YOU for what you have done and are doing!
