Fridays Are For One Question

Yesterday was Veteran’s Day. Hopefully you took the opportunity to express your thanks to someone who has served in the armed forces over the years, and to God that brave men and women have accepted that duty. On such a holiday, there are a ton of images that spring to mind: the beach at Normandy. The tomb of the Unknown. A flag draped casket.

Now your turn:

“What image springs to mind for you on Veteran’s Day?”

    My daughter-in-law’s brother is serving in our military and his wife delivered their first child yesterday. Praise the Lord for new life but also for those willing to put themselves in harms way for our freedom.

    God Bless!

    My family went to the Veterans Day parade in Nolensville last weekend. The kids huddled in quilts on the lawn in front of the funeral home till the parade began. Honestly, I haven’t been to any parade since I was in marching band in high school, so I struggled to know how to act as a spectator to this event. I heard a lady, watching from inside her car next to me yell “Thank you!” at the first of the veterans passing in cars. It then struck me that she knew exactly what to do at a veterans day parade – be thankful, and show it. I hope I can pass on thankfulness for the common grace of our Armed Forces and the sacrifices they make in our defense.
