Memorial Day Weekend Is Here! Yay!

The kick-off to the summer season has arrived. OK, technically it is still Spring-- but let's be honest, most of us think of Memorial Day as the beginning of the Summer season. But, of course, it is so much more than that: it is a time to reflect and remember the best part of those who have gone before us and made sacrifices for our well-being. I think of my Mom and Dad and plan to make a visit to their graves today before leaving town to return home to pay respect and honor to them (as I do in my heart all the time) for all that they have done for us. My Dad was a World War II veteran who served about the U.S.S. Hornet during the war with honor. He never talked about it much-- and I suppose those who saw battle like he did would not really want to recall or it brag about it in any way.

Anyway, I love my Mom and Dad. Their deaths has not changed that. I look forward to being reunited with them one day in a glorious kingdom where there is no war or rumor of it. Such is the blessed hope I have in Christ.  Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; -Titus 2:13

Happy Memorial Day weekend. May God bless America.
