It’s a Christian Playbook tradition to point folks to the Guideposts article A Devotion for Memorial Day by Fred Bauer. This provides some historical perspective on the holiday and Fred’s holiday practice with his mother. Definitely worth the 3-5 minute read!
Thinking of those who’ve passed.
Decorating graves (some of my kin did this earlier this month for their parents!)
Reminding loved ones of what will happen with us (maybe you did this with your Binder of a Lifetime?)
Each of us can spend this Memorial Day by honoring memories as we see fit…
ACTION: If you feel the urge, consider taking a 5-15 minute stroll through a cemetery you pass along your way today. Pray for those buried there, their sacrifices, their families and the love that they shared. Then, maybe it’s time for a phone call to someone whose memory you’d like to celebrate while they are still alive?
PRAYER (from the Guideposts article) Teach us, Lord, the best way to pay an unpayable debt is to show with our lives that we didn’t forget.
Enjoy the day, filled with the Spirit!
