Today is Veteran's Day

National Cemetery in Memphis TN

Today is Veteran's Day
Yesterday we went to this cemetery looking for a friend's parents' graves. As we walked around, we remembered today is Veteran's Day. What a sobering moment it was to stand in this place and think of the sacrifices that were made for me and my family to be free today. 

This week we had the right to vote for leadership and today we have the right to voice our opinion. These graves mark the men and women who fought for that right and I am thankful. 

We are free today because of my Lord and veterans who fought for me. 
I love my country. 
God Bless America.
"Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one's life for one's friends." John 15:13
Song wrote by Keith Urban called "For You"
All I saw was smoke and fire I didn’t feel a thing
But suddenly I was rising higher
And I felt like I just made The biggest mistake
When I thought about my unborn child
When I thought about my wife
And the answer rang out clear
From somewhere up above
No greater gift has man Than to lay down his life for love
Maybe you don’t understand I don’t understand it all myself
But there’s a brother on my left and another on my right
And in his pocket just like mine
He’s got a photograph And they’re waiting for him back home
It’s weighing on my mind I’m not trying to be a hero
I don’t wanna die But right now in this moment, you don’t think twice
I wonder, would I give my life
Could I make that sacrifice?
