Are You Remembering?


Memorial Weekend is celebrated in America with
picnics,
family reunions,
camping trips,
cook-outs,
gatherings with friends,
yard work,
sleeping in
and anticipation for the summer ahead.
Through the years,
the time of remembrance has extended
to include any who have passed on
by visiting and decorating grave sites.
It’s also celebrated with patriotic activities,
like ceremonies to honor our Veterans.
It’s always hard to remember,
but we need to.
We must revisit the pain
to honor the fallen.
Sometimes the most life-changing remembrances are
celebrated with tears.
Tears can water the parched soul and bring healing,
or parch the soul as with bitter water.
In all your remembrances,
may your tears bear the peaceable fruit of righteousness.

    AMEN! I read the blog a few days ago of a mother who's 34 year old daughter was killed in Iraq. I wished I could hug that woman. It isn't just the past, it is the present, and unfortunately, the future as well.Thank you for your post.
