I really wanted to, and knew I should, post something like this yesterday. I really did.
But I was chopping potato salad and smoking brisket.
It was wonderful.
As is this:
How many of you followed this suggestion yesterday? Maybe you don't know her, and didn't read her blog, but, how many of you thought of the young men and women who stand between you and evil? If you didn't, don't feel badly. They wouldn't want you to. But, please, pray for them now, and in the future. Pray for their health, their well-being, their safe return. Pray for their families. Pray for their patience, their forbearance. Pray for the people of this nation, that we would dedicate ourselves to a sense of honor, a life of courage, a commitment to something greater than ourselves, that we would defend this nation and each other.
And pray for peace, for an end to the necessity for armies and navies.
