Memorial Day! 1 John 3:16

Good morning everyone,
Today as a nation, we celebrate this day to remember all the ones who have come before us that have served to keep this nation 'a land of the free!'  That freedom has come at a price that is very hard to measure because many of those that have served did so with their life!  No other nation in the world has enjoyed the freedoms and opportunities that we have enjoyed!  As we celebrate today, help us to thank our Lord and Savior for the ultimate sacrifice that He gave by giving His Son as a 'sacrifice' for all.  When I think about all the men and women who have sacrificed their lives for you and I and they most likely didn't even know us personally, that blows my mind.  1 John 3:16 says, 'This is how we know what love is:  Jesus Christ laid down His life for us.  And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers and sisters.'  Stop for a moment and thank the Savior for allowing you to live in the country with the most freedom on the planet!  May your day be filled with attitude of gratitude for God allowing you to live in such a time as this!  Remember our Savior and thank Him for the example of living out the definition of Love!!
Your brother in Christ,
