I've recently heard of an idea for people to stop at 3:00 this afternoon (Monday) and remember. I would like to add my encouragement to this idea. I would like to add that when we stop we not only remember we say a prayer. We say a prayer of thanksgiving, for our service men and women, but also a prayer of thanksgiving for the freedom to be able to stop and pray. Praise God!
This is definitely one of God's gifts, part of God's grace, we CAN thank, and praise, God when and where we choose. We can praise God for the freedoms we have because of the men, and women, who serve in our military.
So, as we celebrate the start of summer, the return of "our" summer people, the warmer weather and the celebrations happening today -- I ask you to take the "time" to remember.
