My reflection today is a prayer for Memorial Day:

“As our nation pauses today to remember those in the military who have given their lives for freedoms we enjoy, we pray you would have us all look to you for strength, comfort and guidance.
Be with all who serve in our Armed Forces. Bless them and their families. Grant your loving protection. Let peace prevail among all the nations, O God. Especially let your mercy rest upon our land, even as we acknowledge with thanksgiving your past goodness on this country. If it is your will, preserve the lives of the men and women in uniform as they defend our citizenry.
Most of all, we pray that you would turn the hearts of all – military and civilian – to your holy Word where we find the true peace for our souls that surpasses all understanding. Move us to know, take hold and treasure your saving grace. In this peace and hope for eternity, we pray.”

Memorial day it’s a day to remember all those who gave their lives in service to our country.
Today I remember in a special way my uncle George, ( I am named after him) he was killed in World War II.
Let us remember all those who fought and died for our freedoms. Amen
