Remembering Those Who’ve Gone Before

  • We’re grateful to those who have served and do serve our country. Some gave the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom. I think about the helicopter that was shot down in Vietnam, trying to rescue my wounded grandpa, and all on board gave their lives. For him! I’m without words.
  • As we remember those who’ve stepped into Eternity before us, we’re grateful for their lives. 
  • We would be remiss if we didn’t mention the unborn babies whose lives have been taken, when they were in what should have been the safest place in the world: their mother’s womb.
  • We’re grateful to the Lord Jesus, Who took our sins upon Himself–the perfect Lamb–and sacrificed His life so we can live eternally. Isn’t that glorious?

flag“Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot.”
1 Peter 1:18-19

  1. Totally unrelated, but I was wondering if you could pray for me? I’m having surgery on Thursday, and a prayer would be appreciated!
    Yes, of course. Please let us know how you are doing.

  2. It is indeed glorious! 🙂 “In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace”

  3. I was thinking about my grandfather, who died this last fall, on Memorial Day. He wasn’t a perfect man, as no one is, but he loved the Lord and he loved his family, and he worked hard for them his entire life. He served in WWII, and saw first hand a world without God. It affected him all his life, and I am sure was the source of many of his faults, for which his family lovingly forgave him, as Jesus commanded. I am so blessed and so grateful to have known him.
