I Remember...

There is no greater love than to lay down one's life for his friends." ~John 15:13

Con Mims, Jr -Laredo 1922

For many people...Memorial Day is not just a Monday that starts off Summertime

Memorial day is EVERY day.

Today, I remember my Grandfather, Big Con...although I never knew him. 
I know all about him....
I will remember.

I know of his character and love because he lives on through my Mom and Uncle Con, and for 67 years, through the love of my precious Grandmother, Momo. 

I know, very clearly, why they are the greatest generation.

I know and I remember.

I also know that we will all meet and be together one day.

I remember....
The heavy price.

I also remember we are loved and fully known by God, 
Who fully understands paying a heavy price. 

"You were bought at a price." ~1 Corinthians 6:20a

God, Thank You for the life of this man, Con Mims, Jr. and all of those who gave their lives alongside of him. Please give the peace that passes all understanding to all of those who have lost loved ones in the service of our country.
Thank you for sending Your Son, who bought our Eternal Freedom with the incomparable price.

In His Dust,
