You have put gladness in my heart,
More than in the season
that their grain and wine increased.
I will both lie down in peace and sleep,
For You alone, O Lord.
Make me dwell in safety.
This Memorial Day, I pay tribute to my Mother's Dad, Thea Bowen, who was killed in WWII.
I pray for our men and women in the armed services around the world, that they will feel God's love and care and will be able to sleep peacefully. I remember Daddy talking about being in Germany during WWII - how bitterly cold it was during the long nights, and how he longed to see the sunrise.
I thank God for all those who have defended freedom and those who gave their lives in the wars.
