Why Do We Celebrate Memorial Day?

It is an American tradition to honor the men and women who died while serving in U.S. Military.


Have you ever considered that the Lord may have delivered you from your “Egypt” so that you may deliver someone else? 

Whatever you have walked through this life whether it is divorce, illness, adultery, or addiction…the Lord can use it all to deliver other people.


Stressors appear in many shapes. Work, financial, and even illness all affect us physically, emotionally, and spiritually. One strategy to relieve stress is listening to music. So this past week as I read David’s psalms I reflected how stressed he must have been when he wrote these psalms.


While sitting at the wedding feast of my son and his lovely bride, I remembered the wedding parable that Jesus taught. Wearing my plum colored “mother-in-law” dress and looking very matronly, I squirmed just a bit as I considered whether my attire was suitable for this joyous occasion. 

Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength

Mark 12: 30 NIV
I wish we could walk together in the coolness of the morning. I would wrap my arms around you in a big mama bear hug and together we would share snippets of our lives to encourage each other, as well as laugh together as good friends do.
