DDay Observance

Thank you to Melodee for the reminder of today's importance in history. If you look around on her blog, you will find the recurrent theme of stories and pictures about this time and place. Her writing and passion for this era and people is evident, and far surpasses any meager attempt on my part.

I found this picture (which comes from the Coast Guard/National Archive collection. It shows men praying aboard a vessel bound for Normandy on June 6th. I'm thankful for their opportunity to pray before this huge event in their lives, and would like to believe that, whether these men were survivors or among the lost, they may have had that opportunity for salvation, that our Lord brings.
