Our Memorial of Peace

Peace.  Human beings were designed to thrive in an atmosphere of peace.  Peace is so bald_eagle_head_and_american_flag1highly prized by mankind that we are willing to fight wars to secure peace within our borders.  President Dwight Eisenhower said, “We seek peace, knowing that peace is the climate of freedom.”

And we all know that freedom isn’t free.  Today we remember the American soldier, that man, that woman who paid the price for our freedom in America, our days of peace in this nation.

General Douglas MacArthurDouglas MacArthur said, “The soldier, above all other people prays for peace, for he must suffer and bear the deepest wounds and scars of war.”

The measure of peace that we enjoy today was paid for by men and women who were willing to suffer and bear the deepest wounds and scars of war.  On this Memorial Day weekend, I want to invite you to enjoy this You Tube video, The Path of the Warrior.  And stay tuned.  On the next post I am eager to honor the path of another warrior–the warrior who fought for the peace of our souls.

 

 

 

 

 

It is fatal to enter any war without the will to win it.

About Lift the Cross of Jesus!

My day job is writing--I'm an author and publisher of a number of books. More on that later. But there is nothing of greater importance to me than the early morning hours I spend with the Creator of the Universe. Although He knows everything there is to know, His greatest delight isn't to give us knowledge, but to give us love. My highest joy is to watch the sun rise with notebook in hand and write the words he speaks to my heart. I want to share some of those words with you here . . . words on the cross.
