.'' I REMEMBER! ''...Memorial Day




''The old Indian teaching was that it is wrong to tear loose from its place on earth anything that may be growing there.

It may be cut off, but it should not be uprooted. The trees and the grass have spirits. Whatever one of such growths

may be destroyed by some good Indian, his act is done in sadness and with a Prayer for forgiveness because of his

necessities....These things we remember.''

''Wooden Leg''...Cheyenne

''I Was Awakened by 'Far Off Screams' of Someone in much agony and pain, The likes of which I never heard before.

It was a Cry of deep suffering, a Cry I would never like to hear again,..Agonizing,..Terrifying. As I fully awoke to the

sound,...I realized that it was Me.'' ( True Account of Myself Awakening from a Coma after My War Injuries.)

''MEMORIAL Day!''...A Time to ''Remember'',..a Time to Reflect on Our Past,.a Day to ''Remember Our Warrior's'' and

at What Price Freedom is Paid...

Now that I have Your Attention,..Go Grab that ''Cup O' Joe'' and find a spot to rest them ''O'l Bones!'' I'll see if I can

Awaken some of those ''Days of Yester-Year''...Memories of Things Past,..and Give 'Tribute' to those who made it Possible

Our ''Veteran's'',..Many Who Gave All so We Might have ''All''...

Gosh,..lets ''Step Back'' into the Days of ''Kick the can'' and become as Days of Our Youth,..

Remembering that We had ''Block Mom's''...You 'Remember',..If you were at Johnny's house if it got dark,..His Mom,

with your urging, would call your Parents and ask if it was 'O.K.' for you to stay for dinner!..

To ''Call'' though,..Sometime you had to wait,. as back then Everyone had ''Party Lines!''..and you had to wait your turn!

When ''Mr. Smith'' came Home,..You'd say Hi Mr. Smith and make sure that His paper was on the table, since you were

the ''Dinner'' guest!..Manners were a ''Must!''

Of course, back then,.''Grace'' was said at Dinner,.at Every-ones House, as Folks back in the ''Old Days'' were Grateful

to GOD for their ''Blessings'' and Thankful that the ''War to End All War's''..W.W.Two was Over!

Sundays,..After ''Church'' it was Family time, After breakfast of course!...Dad in the Garage, Always working on some

''Project!''..and you,.well, either was working with your ''Handy Andy'' tool kit,..or ''Burning'' something with your

''Wood-Burning'' kit!

Now the Girls,..Mom,.cleaning the house,..and ''Sis'' cutting out dolls, or cooking with her ''Suzie Homemaker'' stove,..

Yup!..the little ''Oven'' with the light bulb in it that she baked little cakes in it,..''Mmmmm''..sure were good too!..

Sunday night was ''Ed Sullivan'' then ''Bed!''...But

Saturday,..Why if you or the neighbor had a T.V....Back then,..only a few

''Well to do'' had them,..why it was ''Horror Film Saturday,..usually at ''Billy's'' was his turn!...

Some Saturdays,..the ''Block Mom'' would pile everyone in the ''Station Wagon''...Which was a ''Family Tradition'' as

Every Family had one I think,..and go to the Park,..Beach,..or the ''Movie Matinee''..If You were ''Lucky'' Whose-ever

Dad got paid Friday, was to the $1.00 a ''Car-load''-Drive-Inn theater!....Sleeping bags 'optional!'

''Remember''...Keys were left in cars with windows left open over-night..No Problem...Houses left ''Un-Locked''

The Milkman left milk on the porch...''Loved'' to lick the cardboard ''plug'' got the cream off of it!....The Helms Bakery

truck would whistle and stop,..only to open the drawer-full of fresh donuts,..bread,..rolls... ''Day-Old'' were 1/2 price,..if

the driver was called ''Sir'',..after awhile,.He'd slip you a ''Two-day'' old donut for Free!..

In the ''Big City''...The 'Ice Man' would deliver blocks of ice,..the 'Produce' man had fresh 'Veggies' on his cart,

why they even had a 'Knife' guy who'd yell...''Hava' dull knife, make it Sharp'a as Your Wife!''

''Memorial Day''...Seems back then,.We as a Nation had more Values,..Remembering,..The Soldiers were called..

''The Grateful Generation'' the Country living through ''Two War Front's'' having realistically Defending several Countries

on 'Both' sides of the World!

What does the ''Bible'' say about ''War'' and its Message for Us to ''Remember'' about Our Forefathers

Jeremiah-7;5-7..''If you change your ways and your actions and deal with each other justly, if you do not oppress the

alien, the fatherless or the widow and do not shed innocent blood in this place, and if you do not follow

other gods to your own harm, then I will let you live in this place, in the land that I gave your forefathers

for ever and ever.''

John-16:33...'' I have told you these things, so that in Me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble,

But take heart! I have overcome the world.''

Ephesians-6:12-13...''For Our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities,

against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.

Therefore put on the armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand

your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.''

''WHEW!''..Quite allot of Scripture thrown at You!..BUT!..You need to See,..And Hear Who We are as a ''Nation'',..a Nation

''Under God''....a True Nation Dedicated for ''Truth,..Justice,.and the American Way''....As a 'Christian Nation'' God's Way!

It is Because of ''Our Veterans'' from times of Past, George Washington at ''Valley Forge''..Against an Enemy of

Overwhelming Odds,..With-Out Food,..low on supplies,..He Looked for ''Help'' from the ''Only ONE'' Who could come and

Save the Day,..General Washington knelt Down in Prayer,..Humbling Himself on a 'Bent Knee'...''My GOD,..If Ever We

Needed YOU Father, is Now''....God,..Hearing this ''Humble Man's Prayer''...Well..the rest is History..

Yes,..''With Great Power Comes Great Responsibility''...Lincoln,..Rosevelt , Reagan and the Many Great leaders whom in

time of Trouble,.Humbled them self and asked,..''NO!''...Prayed for the Father's help,..and Got it,as They were Men of great

Spiritual Conviction!... A Miracle?...Lets see...

2 Chronicles-7:14-15..''If MY People will Humble themselves and Pray, and search for ME, and turn from their Wicked ways,

I will hear them from heaven and forgive their sins and heal their land. I will listen, wide awake, to

every Prayer from this place.''

I know,..I've 'Preached' this many times,..But We Need Help,..We ''Need GOD'',..

This ''MEMORIAL DAY''..Lets Remember this...

''For God so Loved the World that He gave His Only Begotten Son,...

This Nation Still gives up Her Son's and Now Daughter's in Freedom's Name,..

As JESUS Died to Free Us from Sin,..Our Veteran's Die to Keep US Free!''

Memorial Day ''Ain't'' just about a ''B.B.Q.''..It's about ''Sacrifice'....

I'll leave You with these ''Proverbs''...

''Our GOD is a God of Second Chances''

''Keep eternity's goal in sight by walking daily in God's Light''

''Your entry can Decide how You Exit!''

May We always ''REMEMBER''..that Because of Our Veteran's Sacrifice,..We CAN and Will Always be Able to Say...

''May GOD Bless America''...for it is in ''GOD We Trust!''

Sherrie and I Hold All of You in Prayer,..Say a Prayer for ''Our Warrior's'' in 'Harm's Way' and One for Our Country!''

Don't Forget to ''REMEMBER'' Who Made it ALL Possible too!...GOD and Son!...Let the 'HOLY SPIRIT' Guide Your Heart too!

Pastor Frank the ''Preacher'' and Sherrie...

Price of Freedom...''Look into the Eyes of a Veteran,..Se the Reflection of Yourself!''
