Well, here it is Remembrance/Veterans Day 2010. This is a day when we can remember those who have braved the horrors of war to help allow us to continue living in relative freedom. It is a day to be thankful for those who have risked their very lives for the cause of freedom and a day to remember those who have actually given their lives for the cause of freedom. Thank you to all those who have served or are serving in the military. Thank you to the families who have had to deal with separation from (and even loss of) a loved one who has served in the military. What a sacrifice for freedom! Hopefully we remember throughout the year to be thankful for the veterans who have fought for freedom, and not just on November 11.
May we also remember the One who gave His life so that we can have ultimate freedom – eternal life – if we truly accept it!
“For God loved the world so much that he gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.” (John 3:16 NLT).*
