Happy Veterans Day!

“It’s about how we treat our veterans every single day of the year. It’s about making sure they have the care they need and the benefits that they’ve earned when they come home. It’s about serving all of you as well as you’ve served the United States of America.”
-President Barack Obama

Happy Memorial Day!


A Day to Remember



There is a day we stop and remember,

The men who fought with bravery.

Those who shed their blood and lost their lives,

So our country could live in liberty.
There is a day we stop and remember

The colors that we love.

The red, white and blue of freedom,

That fit our country like a glove.
White for purity of purpose,

Red for valor during battle,

Blue for justice paid to those who threaten us,

Are the gifts our Lord blessed upon our men.
There is a day we stop and remember,

That our men have not died in vain.

For after every battle is won,

Our country’s standards reign.
Wave a flag,

Place a flower upon a grave,

Say a prayer of thanks on Memorial Day.

For the price of freedom was freely paid.

Happy Veteran’s Day 2015!

We Owe Them a Lot

On Veterans Day we remember again
Our men and women who served;
We honor them now for what they did then:
The liberties they preserved.

Let’s never forget their sacrifice,
The hard, heavy work they have done;
They did what was asked, crucial needs they fulfilled,
With a telephone, pencil or gun.

We’re happy and proud to honor them;
They gave so much more than they got.
Our heroes, our veterans kept freedom safe;
All of us owe them a lot.

By: Joanna Fuchs

A Veteran’s Day Prayer

Dear Lord, We pray for blessings on this assembly
of extraordinary men and women,
who did things most people don’t want to do,
went to places we would never want to visit,
and lived at length in uncomfortable surroundings
we can’t even imagine.
They did what they did from devotion
to their country’s freedom, honor and reputation.
They endured difficult service
because they are exceptional people,
a cut above the rest of us,
who live safe, comfortable lives.
We pray that you will bless them mightily, Lord.
Lavish on them now
abundant comforts and pleasures
they so often did without.
We pray that our country
will always honor their service
expressing frequently profuse gratitude
for their service to keep us safe and free.
In Jesus’ name we pray; Amen.
