Giving Honor

"Give to everyone what you owe them: If you owe taxes, pay taxes; if revenue, then revenue; if respect, then respect; if honor, then honor." Romans 13:7

This Memorial day I would like to thank every man and woman that has served and is serving this country in our branches of the armed forces. I always think of my Uncle Ernest especially when this holiday rolls around.  He was a handsome, gentleman...quiet,calm spirit and always with a ready smile. A man that served his country during the Korean War, and came home with a Purple Heart of Honor. We are so proud of his dedication and commitment to God, his family and country. And yet he was just one of so many thousands that fought and some even giving their lives so that we can live in freedom.

Working near a military base, I often see Military personnel and their families. I admire them and often get the opportunity to thank them for the sacrifices they have made so that I would not have to.

We have so much to be thankful for in this country. Of course we have our share of issues and problems, but still it is the best place to live in this whole wide world; and I thank God for the men and women that have fought and dedicated their lives for making it so.  God Bless you Veterans...I give honor to you, the honor that is due to you...Thank you!
