In Remembrance of....

Monday was Memorial Day. I explained to my six year old daughter what that meant. "Today is the day we remember the soldiers," I told her. "How can I remember them if I don't know them?" she asked.

From a six year old point of view, that is a very good question. How do we "remember" someone we don't know? For us, it was easy to resolve. I reminded her that her daddy was a soldier, and a veteran. She knew him. She excitedly replied, "That means my daddy is special to the earth!" That was good enough for a six year old. To tell her we are specifically remembering fallen soldiers would wait for a few more years.

"Do this in remembrance of me," Jesus told the disciples after breaking bread, and telling them its symbolism of his body being broken for them. He was reminding them that after he was resurrected to Heaven, that we should still break bread together, and should remember His sacrificial death so that we may have eternal life.

But do we remember?

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don’t know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.

Am catching up on some of your past posts. I just finished reading and watching My Cardboard Testimony.
You told me about it but seeing it was indescribable!
The pollen is really bad around here. Keeps making my eyes water.

P.S. I didn't realize God Bless The USA was written so long ago!

Looks like I took a "blog-break" just in time. My blog has "Jumped The Shark"!

Thank you again for yesterday. Who would think that a trip to the doc would be so fun.....even without pain meds! (Hope your head feels better.)
