Memorial Day, Every Day

Every day is memorial day for a widow. Perhaps this national remembrance is meant to tell you that our entire nation feels your grief in one way or another. It's just that big.

But our good Lord is bigger and you are not alone.
So today, when you hear a soldier playing Taps, remember the last line, "God is nigh." Say a prayer to thank God for His presence and the freedom we have to acknowledge it. And then, thank a soldier or veteran. Thank him not only for his own efforts, but because he's a representative of the ones that you can't see who are in Arlington and countless other graves all over the world.

I send a sincere "thank you" to soldier wives and widows all over our country. I'm sure I can speak for everyone reading this and say, "our hearts are with you."

Blessings on you and prayers for the world today,

P.S. Blog posts will be sporadic for the next few weeks. Signing up for email notifications is a convenient way to know when new posts arrive. (see the FOLLOW BY EMAIL box in sidebar) I will continue to try to reply to emails, comments, and Lifeboat requests, but I want you to know my computer will be loaded on a moving truck for almost a week, so please forgive my absense (no, I'm not mobile, it's a miracle I can blog, lol!). I look forward to getting settled and back to visiting with you each day, though! And in July---don't forget---there will be a FREE BOOK GIVE-AWAY with all sorts of good books for widows! Now before you leave this page, remember to sign up for email notifications so you don't miss out!
