Lately, in Life with Lynnie (LwL) I’ve been writing about remembering those who have fought for freedom.
Freedom, for me. For you. For all, who have been attacked by evilness.
Today, is Remembrance Day, here in Canada. In other allied countries, this day is celebrated as well. Not always known by the same name.
Here are some Youtube links celebrating what our veterans have done:

I’m so very grateful to those who risk their lives daily, for us. Grateful for all in the past who risked their lives and sometimes gave the supreme sacrifice.
Whenever I think of remembering, I think of what we are told us in 1 Corinthians 11:23-26, “For I received from the Lord that which I also delivered to you: that the Lord Jesus on the same night in which He was betrayed took bread; and when He had given thanks, He broke it and said, “Take, eat;this is My body which is brokenfor you; do this in remembrance of Me.” In the same manner He also took the cup after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in My blood. This do, as often as you drink it,in remembrance of Me. For as often as you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death till He comes.”
We truly need to remember. Remember Jesus. Remember those who gave of themselves for us.
Ode of Remembrance…
They went with songs to the battle, they were young.
Straight of limb, true of eyes, steady and aglow.
They were staunch to the end against odds uncounted,
They fell with their faces to the foe.
They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them.
Yes… we will remember them!
Until next time…
