Known But to God

I woke up this morning to a Memorial Day that was cold, grey, rainy, and thus dreary. I’ve always felt that days like this are oddly appropriate for graveside services. It seems appropriate for observing Memorial Day as well. I wanted to share the picture below of a cross-shaped tombstone reading, “Here rests in honored glory a comrade in arms known but to God.” “Known but to God.” It’s enough for that soldier, and it’s enough for us as well. When we feel small and insignificant, we can find comfort in knowing that we are known to God. In time we will know fully, even as we are now fully known. (See 1 Corinthians 13:12.)
