WE HONOR THEM

Those who served

and paid the price,

valued our freedom

above their lives.

Fighting for country

was more than loyalty.

Love reigned in the hearts

of these men and women,

who put their lives

where there is no surety

of coming back alive.

Strong to defend,

Quickly they mobilize

against all threats

that want to destroy

our nation of freedoms.

We honor their sacrifice

and lift them up

before God,

these brave, noble soldiers

this Memorial Day.

Amen.

 

 

 

I WILL CLING TO YOU

When the world around me

is falling apart

I will cling to You

When my inner self

is shaken, dejected,

and I’m hardly able to stand

I will cling to You

When giving up seems attractive

I recall your Word

and claim your promise:

“I can do all things

through Christ

Who strengthens me”

(Phil 4:13).

I am lifted up

willing and able to live for You

My mind focused on wellness

I praise Your holy name

Knowing we’ll endure hardship,

doubt and persecution

near the time of Your coming

I’m comforted and strengthened

by Your presence

For I’ve learned to cling to You

 

           —Scripture quotation from NKJV Bible.
