Memorial Day

Patriotic holidays are normally the time when we enjoy picnics, bar-b-ques, football games and other outdoor events.

But sometimes......... it is a time of quiet and reflection.



And enjoy a peaceful dinner on the porch.

As we observe Memorial Day, I am thankful to honor and remember the men and women who gave their lives to keep our country free. I am thankful for a Savior who saved me from the punishment I deserve and gave me the free gift of Life eternal.

For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God—not by works, so that no one can boast
(Ephesians 2:8-9).
