In God We Trust

In God We Trust (Photo credit: kevin dooley)

A daddy’s warm and tender love,

Now sent in whispers from above.

A mother’s touch and sweet embrace,

Was torn away and not replaced.

An elder’s wisdom, lost for good,

Was buried where his headstone stood.

A husband’s kiss is felt no more,

The burden of the flag he bore.

A wife’s respect and inner light,

Could not withstand the bitter fight.

A brother’s zeal and thirst for life,

Forever quenched amid the strife.

A sister’s courage paid the price –

Her hope was born of sacrifice.

A family’s home was torn apart,

The pieces added to Death’s cart.

Remember freedom is not free,

For blood was shed for you and me.

The Son of God nailed to a tree;

A wooden cross and spikes of three.

Remember freedom is not free,

His blood was shed because of me.

Verse Of The Week:
Jesus said, “If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. 32 Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” – John 8:31-32
