I am Thankful my Father and most of the men and women I served with returned Home safely. But today is a day to remember all who have sacrificed everything to allow us to have Freedom. There have been many beautiful writings and pictures done to depict their Sacrifice.
But, it is hard to put into words, or pictures, how great the sound of silence, the comfort and peace I feel while sitting at my desk and write this. There is no sound of artillery, missles, weapons firing or explosions outside of my door. How precious it is to be able to sit quietly and eat a cinnamon roll and drink coffee without fear of having my home turned into a raging battlefield. Or, wondering where our next meal will come from.
I can not put a price tag on the value of my ability to read and study Jehovah’s Precious Scripture openly and without fear. In the Safety of my Home.
I offer my Prayer of Thanksgiving to Jehovah for all who “Gave All” so that we can feel safe in our Homes.
As Jesus said:
(John 15:13) Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.
