Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery (JB) was less than a mile from where we used to live in St. Louis. A little trivia: It is the oldest operating military installation west of the Mississippi River.
I always loved how JB would honor the women and men who had served in the military. The first-ever graveside I led there brought tears to my eyes. It was full of reverence, respect, and honor. I left feeling grateful for the thousands of people buried there that I never had the opportunity to meet face-to-face, but shared the common conviction that freedom matters.
This week, I wanted to share a Memorial Day message from one of the greats: Billy Graham.
As you remember the women and men who gave their lives to protect our national freedom, may also remember the One who gave His life for our eternal freedom.
Check out Billy Graham's message here and let me know what you think.
Happy Memorial Day.
Love you all!
