This is Memorial Day weekend, a time we set aside to remember, honor and reflect on the men and women who gave their all for their country. I have been doing some reflecting about the price that has been paid so that I can enjoy the freedoms I have in America.
Having been reared in a Military family, I know the sacrifices that are made both by the one who serves as well as the family. The separation when the family member is deployed is so hard on the family especially children, I remember missing my father so much, and praying for his safety.
I will be eternally grateful to the men and women who sacrificed their lives and for those who continually place their lives in harms way for these freedoms.
Mr P and I make it a priority to pray for our Military Troops and their families as well as America. Please join us as we lift them in prayer daily.
|We cherish too, the Poppy red|
That grows on fields where valor led,
It seems to signal to the skies
That blood of heroes never dies.
As you know, our grandson, Will is deployed, we have only heard from him once, Please pray for him
