Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength. The second is this:'Love your neighbor as yourself.' There is no commandment greater than these.
Tomorrow is the official start to the Memorial Weekend for the military. Many military members will have a four day weekend and that will start tomorrow and continue to Monday. Many of those military members are excited for the four day considering most have not had a four day weekend or day off (other than a weekend) since Easter. Many of the military members will have BBQ's or attend BBQ's and have a celebration but they also know the true meaning of this holiday.
Many people look at this weekend as a great way to start the summer. I also look at this weekend as a start to the summer but I do not forget the meaning. Do many people take the time to observe the weekend for what it is really about? For a day of remembrance, remembering our fallen Soldiers; those whom have gone before us and never made it home. My family and I do partake in the BBQ's and the celebrations but we also teach our children the true meaning of Memorial Day.
So as you partake in your celebrations please take a moment to remember those that have fallen, and have a safe weekend. I will be posting for Frugal Friday and then will be taking the weekend off to spend with family. I will be back posting Tuesday for Gratituesday.
