The title of this blog post was originally "Happy Memorial Day"...upon reflection, the word "Happy" doesn't seem appropriate, does it? On this day, we remember those who paid the ultimate price for the freedoms that we enjoy in our country. However, the families of those soldiers don't need a special day of remembrance...they remember their fallen loved ones daily. Amidst the cookouts, ballgames, and pool parties that so many of us have planned for this day off from work, let's make sure we pause to remember the fallen AND pray for the families that are missing a son, father, or friend!
In family news, we had a great weekend! First, we traveled Back Home to celebrate some birthdays with our family. Then, a wonderful church service yesterday morning and small groups last night. Today, eldest is traveling with the youth choir to an Atlanta Braves baseball game--with some forced choir practice in the bus! LOL
Speaking of eldest, she is following in her mom's bloggy footsteps! Last night, she created her own blog and did an introductory post--check it out at www.lifesong-onering.blogspot.com! She's sure to be posting lots of her wonderful photographs & giving a slightly different perspective on life at our house :).
