It’s a glorious day! One in which we give thanks to the service members who lost their lives defending our country. We are proud to live in this country — a country worth defending, and a country that many have thought was worth dying for to protect our freedom — the ultimate sacrifice. I am so thankful and grateful for all of their sacrifices — and those of their families that they left behind.
But I am even more thankful to God for every day that we enjoy:
Praise God in his holy sanctuary; give praise in the mighty dome of heaven. Give praise for his mighty deeds, praise him for his great majesty.
Give praise with blasts upon the horn, praise him with harp and lyre. Give praise with tambourines and dance, praise him with strings and pipes. Give praise with crashing cymbals, praise him with sounding cymbals. Let everything that has breath give praise to the LORD!
Thank you God for this beautiful day and every day you have provided for me. Please grant your grace and mercy to those who have died. I pray that they know you and may enter your kingdom.
