May 29, 2023

We took a ride out to the beach yesterday to visit some friends; I didn’t realize how much I missed it. Just being there for a couple of hours was very cleansing, and I felt my mind clear of all the clutter and peaceful tranquility wash over me. Even though it was overrunning with people because of the holiday, I still found it relaxing. Memorial Day is about remembering the soldiers who fought and died in battle for our freedom, but it’s nice that we get a break from the daily grind to honor their memory. 

Though this holiday is about soldiers, it’s also important to honor our Savior, who fought the battle against death and won. If not for him fighting for our salvation, our minds would not be set free from the chains that bind us, and we would not see Heaven. Give thanks today for our salvation and for living in a country that is still free. 

For freedom Christ has set us free; stand firm therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery. Galatians 5:1
