We are so blessed to have men and women who have risked their lives for our freedom and protection. While we take advantage of this day with our BBQ's, family time, and etc. Let us truly pause and remember what this day is about.
Memorial Day is day to remember the fallen that fell for our freedom. May we thank God for their sacrifice, pray for the families they left behind, and pray for future brave souls to stand up for us.
Set aside some time (5 minutes to whatever you desire) to observe the REAL meaning for this day. Encourage your children to pause and thank the good Lord for these fallen men and women. Teach your family what this day means. It isn't just a day to be off from work, to sleep in and to grill out. It is a day to honor these soldiers who selflessly gave it all for us to be able to enjoy our cookouts, and freedom to celebrate with our families and friends.
Thank you Lord!
