Memorial Day 2007
I've been going through one of those periods of life where I seem to be hanging on by my fingernails.
One day after another, just gettin' by.
The Bible has a verse which, when I was a kid confused me and never could figure out what it was trying to say. Jesus said, "Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof."
When I was older, it hit me. "Each day has enough evil of it's own. Don't waste time worrying about yesterday or tomorrow." (John's Louisiana Public School Literal Translation)
So here I am to try to write a Memorial Day post without having thought for even two seconds about what I was going to write. Instead of stressing and freaking out, this is one of my shoot-from-the-hip posts I've been having to do lately.
If you serve in the US military, or are in the family of one or more of our brave service men and women serving right now. God bless you, and thank you for your service and sacrifice for our country.
If you have served in the past or know or have a family member who was injured or died in service to America in the military, God bless you and thanks for your service and may God comfort you for your lost friends or loved ones.
God Bless America!
