Iwa Jima Memorial StatueThis weekend while we enjoy the longer time away from work, we also reflect on those who served in the military and sacrificed whether through separation, a life devoted to our country, or giving their lives to protect our freedoms.  These are men and women placed their lives on the line so that the rest of us would not have to.

John 15:13 (ESV): “Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends.”

We are thankful to and pray this weekend for those who have lost family members in service, those who have family members actively service, those serving and those whose lives are impacted by having served.  May God bless each and every one of you with comfort and be encouraged that our Lord Jesus loves you with an everlasting love.
