Honoring Sacrifice

Lord God of Hosts, be with us yet,

Lest we forget—lest we forget! Kipling

Monday is a day for remembering,

Heroes who fought wars for us,

And didn’t come home.

Wives and sisters and mothers,

Fathers and brothers and sons,




Left mourning,

Missing hearts,

Purple hearts.

  1. Well said ma’am. We used to refer to Christ as “The Ultimate Ranger” back in the day, as we recognized that He fought the battle, sacrificed His life, and took it back up again in victory for our freedom. This is always one of my most challenging holidays because it gives me pause to consider the cost paid for my freedoms. I ask myself each year if I’ve lived a life worthy of that price. I’ll always fall short in this life I think. (John 15:13). God’s blessings ma’am.
