Happy Memorial Day and Thank You to our Military

Monday, May 28, 2018

Today my thoughts are with our military and military families. Some active duty personnel are stationed away from home and family and possibly in harm's way today, some are recuperating in hospitals, some are discharged and came back from combat traumatized, some are discharged and with family but their bodies are ravaged and their lives are forever changed, and some have lost their lives. All of these fine people, past and present, actively offered and are offering their lives for us and for the freedoms we enjoy. Their goal is to make sure the battle doesn't come to us! Many have paid the ultimate price and more will follow.

Their families know that every day may be their loved one's last. They know that their warrior may come home broken. The sacrifices the families make are enormous and I am very grateful for their courage and love. The families are military too!

I thank God for these patriots and their families who love this country with all of their being and are willing to "do whatever it takes" to protect us, even as my heart breaks for the necessity of putting their lives on the line..

My prayers are with you all; for the active duty personnel who are stationed anywhere in the world, for those who passed peacefully years after their service was done and for the families that remember and grieve for them, for the injured, for the ones who are home but not whole, for the ones in combat now and those who will be going soon, and the families who support and love them from near and far..

May God Bless and Protect You All
