Memorial Day: In Honor of Their Sacrifice

In Honor of their Sacrifice

“Greater love has no one than this; that one lay down his life for his friends.” John 15:13

Today on Memorial Day we remember those who have died while in active duty for our nation; those who gave the ultimate sacrifice for our country and for each of us. We know that it is through their service, their sacrifice, that we are gifted another day. To honor their memory, let us live our lives in a worthy and meaningful manner- lives that allow Christ’s light and love to always shine forth. Let us live bravely and faithfully. To do any less would be to waste their gift of life and freedom.

If there is someone you would like to remember today, please post their names below or on our Facebook page. We would like to honor in grateful thanksgiving your loved ones who have given their lives so that we may continue to experience a life of freedom.

May you have a blessed Memorial Day.
