Memorial Day 2007
I am thankful for so very much in my life. I thank God for my family, friends, and loved ones. For my health and job and home. For my son, who is such a joy in my life. And for the love of my life who cares not only about my life here on this earth but also my eternity. Never before has anyone - - other than myself and God - - ever given that even a tiny thought. God has blessed me....even when I do not deserve it, with the very best!
I am thankful I live in a country of freedom. Today we remember those who died so we might live in freedom and I will ask God to bless those families with love and compassion....and to show mercy on us all.
And some may say this is sappy....some may think I have lost my mind....or am a Jesus freak...or am brainwashed or any number of bizarre things....I don't care. You are FREE to think and believe as you wish....and even if we disagree.....I am thankful you and I both live in a country where we are free to choose what we think and believe in...and free to express it.
Have a safe, blessed Memorial Day.
