Please take some time today to reflect on the sacrifices of so many to allow us all to be free.
The following is an anonymous prayer that appeared in our Sunday Bulletin years ago, and I recently ran across it.
It speaks of the gift of life itself. I take that gift for granted most of the time. Each time I read this, it helps me refocus and think about what is important. Here it is ~
Father, open my eyes. Give me the eyes of a child again – able to see You, praise You, and thank You for the simple, essential things in life and the profound gift of life itself. Let me see Your enduring love in everything from the sidewalk to the sky so that the rest of my “grown-up” years will overflow with praise and thanksgiving. Amen.
God bless you!
