Remembering 'Memorial Day'

This Memorial Day, take a minute to remember those who have given their lives to preserve our freedom, and if you know a Veteran, give them a hand shake and a hardy Thank You!

"Memorial Day was officially proclaimed on 5 May 1868 by General John Logan, national commander of the Grand Army of the Republic, in his General Order No. 11, and was first observed on 30 May 1868, when flowers were placed on the graves of Union and Confederate soldiers at Arlington National Cemetery." (From the Memorial Day History website)

Visit the above website to learn more of the history behind the day, and may you and your family have a truly blessed Memorial Day this year. Here's a nice video to remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice...

Man Gives His Life to Save His Wife's in Joplin Tornado

The Male Domain pays honor and bow it's sword to this husband
for doing his duty and saving his wife.
In a world where men disgrace and abandon woman far too often,
let us remember that the LORD has put into the hearts of men
a sense of duty that enables one to be courageous in the face of death....

Don Lansaw, we salute you....

Raising Sons: Church and Worship

 "When men go to church simply to sit in the back, 
they are teaching their boys to do exactly the same, if that."
-Douglas Wilson, Future Men

Our boys must be taught What to worship, Who to worship, and How to worship. They aren't born knowing how to worship God; in fact, it's more natural for them to worship food, laziness, and sports, than it is for them to worship Jesus Christ. And as they get older their appetites for the above mentioned categories only intensifies, and at a certain age (around puberty) another desire is awakened, but that shall wait for another time!

Well Done, Navy SEALs

Trident of the US Navy SEALs

"Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God. Therefore whoever resists the authorities resists what God has appointed, and those who resist will incur judgment. For rulers are not a terror to good conduct, but to bad. Would you have no fear of the one who is in authority? Then do what is good, and you will receive his approval, for he is God’s servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for he does not bear the sword in vain. For he is the servant of God, an avenger who carries out God’s wrath on the wrongdoer. Therefore one must be in subjection, not only to avoid God’s wrath but also for the sake of conscience." (Romans 13: 1-5)

As a Navy veteran myself, I couldn't be more proud!
