A Soldier's Princess

Trimble-Bakersfield National Cemetery--15

I have made it a custom to take my camera out on Memorial Day weekend each year and try to capture a photograph that speaks to the real meaning of Memorial Day. This year I visited Bakersfield National Cemetery and was moved. Many of us will never understand as well as others what the true cost of freedom is. 

This lovely young lady had just posed for pictures with her daddy at his headstone. As her family was leaving she politely asked her mother, "Can I spend a little more time with daddy?". My eyes welled up in tears as I watched her spend a few moments there before returning to a park bench and waiting patiently while her mother went and spent a few moments at the same headstone.

Abraham Lincoln once said "“A nation that does not honor its heroes will not long endure.”

He Stills The Waves

Psalm 89:8–9 (ESV) — O Lord God of hosts, who is mighty as you are, O Lord, with your faithfulness all around you? You rule the raging of the sea; when its waves rise, you still them.

God is always there to still the waves around us. There may be times when it seems like troubles and difficulties come at us like waves, one after the other, but God is able to steady us and still the waves.

 


Our God Is Big Enough, It Is Our Thoughts And Dreams That Are Too Small

Ephesians 3:20–21 (ESV) — 20 Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, 21 to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen.

 Our God is big enough, it is our thoughts and dreams that are to small. We would do well to find a place to admire all that God has created and then to think of all that He could do for us if only we had faith to ask.
