Today is the anniversary of the D-day invasion of France to begin retaking Western Europe from Hitler's Nazi troops. Do your children and grandchildren know what happened on this day in 1944? Probably not. So be sure to tell them.
War is hell. Pray for peace and for all our men and women serving in harm's way. And pray for those in leadership, especially those who think of our men and women as no more than cannon fodder for their political ambition. God have mercy on them.
And, finally, thank you, Lord, that Daddy survived the war to parent his first child and nine more and to raise them for Christ.
