Thank you!

I just wanted to take a few seconds on this Memorial Day weekend to wish every single military man or woman who has served and protected our country, a hearty, "Thanks and God Bless You"! My dad served in the United States Air Force and we are honoring him by placing a flag on his grave today. It seems like such a simple thing, to place a flag somewhere and say, "thank you" but it is an act that must suffice because there aren't words that go deep enough to express how much our freedom means to us.

The last verse of, "The Battle Hymn of the Republic" says, "As He (Christ) died to make men holy, let us die to make men free"...and that's what our armed services have done since the founding of this great land. Freedom has an incredible price tag but the world still longs for such freedom.

I pray for protection and God's blessing on every soldier today, tomorrow and until they all come home, safely. Happy Memorial Day and God Bless America!
