This year I wanted to share this Memorial Day Tribute with you again. Special prayers and blessings go to those of you whose friends, family members, or loved ones have given their lives for freedom. Feel free to share the names with us of those who died serving our country.
The “stuff” of life consumes us, confuses us, and clouds our perspective daily. We try to write the pages of our lives our way, but we end up with volumes of unnecessary rewrites. When we add the most important story ingredient daily, not legalistically, but with a dry, thirsty spirit, God enters, and changes us–and our story. We all need a divine appointment.
Everyone has an opinion today on what will help their country heal–especially when division, disaster, or election time rolls around. There are many things you can do to help. However, the most important thing you can do to bring healing, not just on the National Day of Prayer, but every day, is to pray for your country:
Here is a prayer especially for mothers and grandmothers because you are so deserving of blessing and honor for who you are and for all you do. No matter what your age, single or married, this prayer for blessing is for every good work, every good word, and for every act of love you have ever offered on behalf of the ones you love.
In what ways did your mom show you extravagant love? How have you demonstrated that to your own children? In this story, my mother-in-law’s extravagant love taught my husband a powerful lesson.
