Happy Veterans Day!

Liberty comes at a price and the men and women who serve our country are willing to pay that price for our freedom and for peace. Often, we don’t dwell on the dangers that face our servicemen and women as they work to protect our freedom. But, it is there. Today we honor and celebrate those who are willing to put their lives on the line for millions of Americans through their service in our armed forces. We are grateful to each and every one of you. Today, we thank you, we salute you, we honor you Veterans!

“Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.”

-John 15:13

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.

The Noble and the Brave:
A Veteran’s Day Tribute

When America had an urgent need,
These brave ones raised a hand;
No hesitation held them back;
They were proud to take a stand.
They left their friends and family;
They gave up normal life;
To serve their country and their God,
They plowed into the strife.
They fought for freedom and for peace
On strange and foreign shores;
Some lost new friends; some lost their lives
In long and brutal wars.
Other veterans answered a call
To support the ones who fought;
Their country had requirements for
The essential skills they brought.
We salute every one of them,
The noble and the brave,
The ones still with us here today,
And those who rest in a grave.
So here’s to our country’s heroes;
They’re a cut above the rest;
Let’s give the honor that is due
To our country’s very best.

Bless Them Abundantly:
A Veteran’s Day Prayer

Dear Lord,
Today we honor our veterans,
worthy men and women
who gave their best
when they were called upon
to serve and protect their country.
We pray that you will bless them, Lord,
for their unselfish service
in the continual struggle
to preserve our freedoms, our safety,
and our country’s heritage, for all of us.
Bless them abundantly
for the hardships they faced,
for the sacrifices they made,
for their many different contributions
to America’s victories
over tyranny and oppression.
We respect them, we thank them,
we honor them, we are proud of them,
and we pray that you will watch over
these special people
and bless them with peace and happiness.
In Jesus’ name we pray; Amen.
