Yesterday we celebrated Memorial Day–a day of remembrance of those who have laid down their lives for our freedom. Several years ago I wrote a poem I’ll share with you today.
Look to me and remember well
The days gone by and those who fell,
Giving their lives for freedom’s sake
Knowing their sacrifice was no mistake.
Look to me and remember the present.
Pray for each and every resident
Who lives in this great land of ours
That by God’s grace we’ll be empowered.
Look to me; remember those yet to come
Who’ll stand in our stead and march to the drum
Of a land established for God’s glory;
A place of freedom to share His story.
