Monday Morning Mary: A Memorial Day Blessing

For Those Who Serve and Sacrifice, A Memorial Day Blessing

For those in service and uniform
who lost their lives,
we remember today your sacrifice, and whisper,
Thank you.

May those who raised you, those who cared
and laughed with you, who mourn you,
may they be blessed.

For those once in service and uniform
who now live without limbs or peace of mind,
we also say, Thank you.

May you be sheltered by someone’s deepest care.
May you find new healing in unexpected places.
May joy wash up daily on the shores of your heart.
You are held in prayer.
May you be blessed.

Mary Gray March
