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.''
''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
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,..you either was working
with your ''Handy Andy'' tool kit,..or ''Burning'' something with your
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''...it 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,..it 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
''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,..like 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,..it 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
time of Trouble,.Humbled them self and
asked,..''NO!''...Prayed for the Father's help,..and Got it,as They were Men of
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
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
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
''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
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!
