Give Honor and respect to all those to whom it is due. -Romans 13:7
In the United States, Memorial Day is on the last Monday in May and honors Americans who gave their lives for their country in wars. America has had many war and many lives have been lost. My father, brother and husband were blessed as two of them were in wars, yet God blessed them to come home without a scratch as dad always said. The Bible tells us in John 14:27 - Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world
gives, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
That is a great comfort for these days. The only real peace one can find is in the Lord our God.
In God's own time and way He makes wars cease to the end of the earth; he breaks the bow and shatters the spear; he burns the chariots with fire. Psalm 46:9
In the mean time while in this sinful world of sorrow, we may be assured that The LORD is near to the brokenhearted, And saves those who are crushed in spirit.- Psalm 34:18
Thank God for those who fought for our country!
As we stand here looking
At the flags upon these graves
Know these flags represent
A few of the true American brave
They fought for their Country
As man has through all of time
Except that these soldiers lying here
Fought for your country and mine
As we all are gathered here
To pay them our respect
Let's pass this word to others
It's what they would expect
I'm sure that they would do it
If it were me or you
To show we did not die in vein
But for the red, white and blue.
Let's pass on to our children
And to those who never knew
What these soldiers died for
It's the least we can do
Let's not forget their families
Great pain they had to bear
Losing a son, father or husband
They need to know we still care
No matter which war was fought
On the day that they died
I stand here looking at these flags
Filled with American pride.
So as the bugler plays out Taps
With its sweet and eerie sound
Pray for these soldiers lying here
In this sacred, hallowed ground.
Take home with you a sense of pride
You were here Memorial Day.
Celebrating the way Americans should
On this solemnest of days.
