Some Things We Never Forget
In life there are some things that we just never forget. There are events, some experiences, and people we will always remember.
Watching our children/grandchildren walk across the stage to receive their diploma is something they and we will always remember. Those are exciting moments, sometimes-emotional moments and experiences that are never forgotten. .
In the Old Testament there is a wonderful story that the children of Israel never forgot. When Israel crossed over the Jordan River, God caused the waters to stop. The bible says,“The waters rose up and were cut off.” There were twelve stones, (one for each tribe), placed there as a memorial. For Israel it was to be a reminder of God’s intervention in their lives. They never forgot that and passed it on to their children.
We have recently observed “Memorial Day.” A time we remember our loved ones who have died. For some of us perhaps a parent, grandparent, child, close friend, someone we shall never forget.
Recently I took my dad to a local cemetery. We walked along recognizing names and sharing memories of days gone by. Many of them were special to me since my childhood days. I will never forget them.
We should never forget our brave SOLDIERS who have given their lives for the freedom we enjoy today. When I see our military men and women dressed in uniform it makes me proud. We should pray for them every day as they lay their lives on the line for us. We should always remember them.
Lastly, but actually first and foremost, we should always remember what the Lord has done for us. There has never been a life as sweet and pure as the life of Jesus. We should remember His life, His death, and His resurrection.
I am looking forward to a great summer, and extend the same wishes to you. . I know there will be happenings that you and I will cherish, not only now, but also for a lifetime.
