“When the bow is in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is on the earth.”
Memorial Day weekend usually initiates summer. We are drawn to the beach, the lake, and grilling is practically a requirement! Ice cream freezers are also placed in service. As we traveled north Friday afternoon from northwest Florida, southbound traffic was obviously well above normal. It may seem the reason for this holiday is overshadowed by our need to kick summer into high gear. But, there is significant evidence that folks here in the south do remember the real purpose for setting aside a special day. There are hundreds of events scheduled to honor all who have stood in the gap to protect freedom and also to pay tribute to many who stand today. Then there’s all those flags! The red, white, and blue is proudly on display. May we all take time to remember that freedom is very costly, and it is always under attack. We pray that all of you have a wonderful and colorful Memorial Day.
