Memorial Day: A Day of Remembering


May 24, 2015 by maryruwe




Memorial Day is a special day we set aside to remember and give thanks to the many soldiers who have fought for our freedom. This is the day of remembering and giving honor to those who died in war to achieve and to maintain the freedom we enjoy.

To all of those gone by – and even to those who now serve in our Armed Services – we say THANK YOU.


To the many soldiers who answer the call

Who serve their Country and give their all

They fought and still fight for freedom for you and me

To save the legacy of this freedom and liberty

The sacrifices made by each soldier and their family

We give great honor to each respectively

We will remember and never forget

No matter where you served or serving yet

So, to those gone by and those of today

We say Thank You for the price that you pay


As we remember our military on this special day, let’s not forget the ONE who gave His life on the Cross of Calvary for our eternal freedom – Jesus.

John 3:16  For God so loved the world that He sent His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting (eternal) life.

Romans 5:8  But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

Romans 10:9-10  If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.  For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

1 John 1:9  If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

Make this day a day of remembrance by believing that Jesus died for your sins and receive His forgiveness.  If already a Christian, then humbly thank Him for being your Savior and helping you live a life that glorifies him.
