More About Remembrance Day...

Hopefully, you know that here on Life with Lynnie (LwL) I discussed Remembrance Day, yesterday.  If you didn't read the entry, please do so.

For a while, I thought I would post something different.  However, since I didn't receive in time all the information I needed when I was writing that entry, I didn't use it.  But today, I am. 

A real life and Facebook (FB) friend of mine is also a fellow writer.  Frank Morency Jr. has a blog that is listed on LwL.  It's called Meditations Thankful Heart; here is a link for you to check it out:  http://www.meditationsthankfulheart.com/.

Frank truly enjoys writing poems.  Thank You, Frank.  I appreciated your help, in providing for me.

You see, last year I read a poem that I requested to share with you.  Frank agreed and sent me the poem.  So, I'm sharing it for you, today.


My True North Hero’s God

Mighty brave hands
Taking hold of ours
Some dead and gone
Some with battle scars
Gave of themselves
Never counting the cost
So that our freedoms
Would not be lost
No greater love
Does a man have
Then to lay down his life for another
For your sister and your brother
For your father and your mother
Yes they kept us free
Brave and strong
With loving hearts
That could not be wrong
O Lord I thank you
For our military
Let our thankful hearts
Make their hearts merry
Watch over them
Each and every day
With angels all around
This is what I pray
And be with those
Who lost their valiant ones
Mothers and fathers
Sisters and brothers
Daughters and sons
Be their comfort
And their peace
By your love
That does not cease
Pain and love
Bound together
We will cherish each one
Forever and ever
My dear friends
Words cannot express
What I want to say
But I thank my God
For you on this day

Thinking about what Frank wrote, considering brave hands and loving hearts of those who put themselves at risk, truly shows us how we need to have respect for those who stand up and fight for our freedom, and for our protection, truly made me think of Remembrance Day, when I read his poem.
 
That brought to mind, John 15:13, "Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends."

Yes, all who fought for our freedom in the past, and those who do so, today... to protect us, had great love within them.  For there is no greater love than when a man lays down his life for his friends.

My friend, I pray that you will always respect, care for, and pray for those who stand up, and do whatever they can, to save our lives from being taken over, and our freedom taken away.

May God bless you.


Until next time...
