I can't let today pass without writing about it. As I mentioned in my last blog, today marked a year since my friend and high school classmate, Adam McSween, was killed in Iraq. Me and Leigh were talking about it in the car on the way to services today, wondering whether anniversary dates must be harder on families than other days. You know, where days like his birthday, their anniversary, a year from the last day she saw him, and today harder than say, any other day. Any day when the kids are both sick or she's just lonely. I don't know. But it led me to think about Jesus' "anniversary dates", you know, His birth/death/resurrection dates. I think probably Erin and all widows are probably remembered more by the world on anniversary dates, just like Jesus is remembered more on days that the world has deemed anniversary dates like Christmas, Easter, ect. Just like God wants us to remember EVERYday Christs' death and resurrection, we need to make more of an effort to remember our military and their families who are daily paying the most extreme sacrifice for our freedom. Just what was on my mind and I hope that you will take a minute nnow to aknowledge all the sacrifices that have been made so you can have the very life that you are living now. Thank God for sending his Son and thank our military for our freedom.
