happy memorial day


(source)

This picture really got me. I was looking for some sweet vintage patriotic photos of soldiers, flags, etc on google and I came across this one. The look on that little boy's face. Oh my gosh. It's heartbreaking.
Today isn't just about having a day off from work and having a family barbeque. It's about honoring those soldiers that have given their lives for our freedom. And remembering to pray for the loved ones they left behind.
Forgive me, Lord, for forgetting to pray and lift these people up. Thank you for all the wonderful and brave soldiers that have fought and died so that I could live in a country where I am free to worship you.
