Memorial Day

This morning I woke up safely in my own bed. I didn't have much to worry about or fear. Yet thousands of men and women including my youngest brother stand in the face of danger each and every day to serve our country and protect the freedoms we so easily enjoy.

Let me never forget what it has cost so many. As I drove past our local cemetery with the parade of American flags displayed so beautifully this week, I am moved by what those colors represent. I am thankful for the men and women who have gone before me to protect what I have and what my children will also have FREEDOM! Freedom to worship God!

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!

**updated to add: yes, I changed the template for my blog. I am waiting on a new design. But in the meantime I thought it was time for something new to look at.

I noticed your new look right away. It looks so nice.
Please tell your brother how much we appreciate his service. I can only echo what you've so beautifully written. We are so blessed.

Thank you to your brother. I never want to take our freedom and safety for granted, but sadly I often do. Thanks for the great reminder Chris.
