This morning we had a pretty good thunder storm that dropped about an inch of rain. My youngest (5 yrs) came up to me and asked if the rain was like tears of sadness. In a way I think she's right. I'm sure God doesn't like that so many people had to die while in service to our country, or any other for that matter. God doesn't like fighting. He weeps when His people fight. He rejoices in peace.
Like God, I hurt when my children hurt. I cry when they cry. I laugh when they laugh. I look at our flag, proudly flying outside, and I say a prayer for all the men and women that have lost their lives so that I can display that flag. All the lives lost so that we may live in the comfort that we enjoy. Thanks to them my daughters have opportunities that they wouldn't have in other countries.
Thank you to all of the men and women who put their lives on the line for us. A special thank you to those who lost their lives in the line of duty!
