Independence Day

As you celebrate your Independence this 4th of July, remember that freedom is not free. Our military service men and women and their families pay the price for our freedom every day. If you know a current military service member or veteran, or if you see one today, say Thank You for serving you and me.

Memorial Day: A Day to Honor those Who Fought and Died for Freedom

Filed under: day, Memorial, soldier, soldiers, veteran — shadygardens @ 1:39 pm
On this Memorial Day, let us pause for a moment of prayer in thanks for soldiers who fought and lost their life for our freedom. 

We should all remind ourselves that Freedom is not Free–it comes with a price. Thank God for those who are willing to pay that price. Also we thank God for those who are willing to take a chance, in order that freedom can be had not only in our own country but overseas as well. 

The next time you see a soldier in uniform, thank him or her for that willingness to serve our country in a world where that sacrifice is not always appreciated. 

Let the soldiers know you care.
