It was Independence Day this week. You likely enjoyed a day off from work, meat cooked on the grill, watermelon, and setting off fireworks in your driveway. If you were lucky you got to spend some time on the lake and catch a few fish.
The 4th of July is a big deal. And rightly so! But it’s easy to coast through the day and not think about what our freedom cost. What it cost then, and what it has continue to cost over the years.
How Chik-fil-A honors the 4th of July
In our house, we decided to grab lunch at Chik-fil-A. We had just returned from vacation on the 3rd and didn’t have much in the fridge.
As we walked in the door of the restaurant, we noticed a table that isn’t normally there.
I almost walked on past, when I noticed the box in the middle was full of little green soldiers.
I stopped and realized it was an encouragement to pray for those who serve our country.
We were being encouraged to take one of the soldiers home and put it somewhere that will remind us to pray for those who serve our country.
What a great way to honor Independence Day! Thanks Chik-fil-A.
Here’s a closer look at the display and the sign.
