Lest we Forget

28 May

I am so grateful for the brave men and women who headed the call and left what was familiar and comfortable for a life of upheaval and uncertainty. Today I pause with reflective prayer to honor those who gave their all…the fallen brave who courageously breathed their last breath defending the country and the people they so loved.

To the families who gather around a grave rather than a grill-my prayer is that our Heavenly Father will fill them with grace, peace, and healing. That they would find comfort in each other and that the sweet memories of their loved ones will sustain them until they are reunited in Heaven. Thank you, for your great sacrifice also!


As you enjoy your 3 day weekend please remember and pray for all the brave men and women in our military. Pray for the mothers and fathers who will never hold their precious boys and girls in their arms again, for the wives and husbands who will never get to live out the hopes and dreams they planned together, and for the precious children who will never feel the tickle of daddy’s whiskers on their cheek or the soft embrace of their mother’s arms again. The burden is too great to let this weekend go by without a heartfelt sense of gratitude for the meaning behind our three day weekend.


~Be Blessed and be a Blessing~

    This is incredibly late but I just saw this post. All four of my brothers served; Two Marines (one fallen), one Navy, one Army. Thank you for thinking of everyone who serves and their families. It warms the hearts of all of us who lost so much.

      Oh Elizabeth, I am truly sad for your tremendous loss. My dad proudly served his country as a career Navy man and served in Vietnam. It takes dedication, patriotism, love, ad heroism on a level I can’t comprehend. I have the utmost respect and tremendous gratitude for our brave men and women and their families. Thank you for sharing with me. I pray I live in such a way that the ultimate sacrifice wasn’t in vain. God Bless you and your family.
