Remembering the "Great War"

What Veterans Day was originally all about. "The war to end all wars." A reminder that all our peace is temporary, unfortunately, this side of eternity. God is our only lasting peace.

Remembering the Great War

For Dad

"For those whose vocation it is to bear the sword in defense of others, grant your benediction and blessing, O Lord of Hosts, that they may serve honorably in the cause of justice and peace. Receive our thanksgiving this day for all our veterans who have served to defend us. Hear us for Thy Name's sake. Amen."

All Saints

On this All Saints Day I am remembering fondly all those who have gone to their eternal rest and who had such an impact on my life. In the past, this could be a rather melancholy day for me, but today is filled with joyful memories. Praise God for his constant love toward us.
