"Let this be a sign among you, so that when your children ask later, saying, ‘What do these stones mean to you?’ then you shall say to them, ‘Because the waters of the Jordan were cut off before the ark of the covenant of the Lord; when it crossed the Jordan, the waters of the Jordan were cut off.’ So these stones shall become a memorial to the sons of Israel forever.”
Thus the sons of Israel did as Joshua commanded, and took up twelve stones from the middle of the Jordan, just as the Lord spoke to Joshua, according to the number of the tribes of the sons of Israel; and they carried them over with them to the lodging place and put them down there."
~ Joshua 4:6-8
Stars and strips...
to serve as a memorial...
for all those who have served to keep freedom alive...
May we show our gratitude by not squandering what so many sacrificed to give us.
By God's providence, we may still worship Him today. Lord let us use it wisely!
'Behold, now is "the acceptable time," behold, now is "the day of salvation".'
