Remembering the many who died for our freedom today. Freedom is not free – it costs something – blood. Thank you Lord, for the men and women who have died while defending our country. They gave their lives, their blood, for our freedom. They showed us what honor means. They remind me of You, Lord. You died to purchase our freedom and protect and deliver your children from the enemy. Today I remember You, Lord.
A Psalm of David.
Bless the Lord, O my soul;
And all that is within me, bless His holy name!
Bless the Lord, O my soul,
And forget not all His benefits:
Who forgives all your iniquities,
Who heals all your diseases,
Who redeems your life from destruction,
Who crowns you with lovingkindness and tender mercies,
Who satisfies your mouth with good things,
So that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s. (Psalm 103 1-5)

Lord I remember when You came to earth,
such a humble birth.
You turned water into wine,
made us fishers of men.
Lord I remember when You turned the tables,
and brought the Truth to men,
The day the lame man walked, and all your signs.
Lord I remember when you found lost sheep,
and taught us about seeds,
The night in the garden, when You taught us how to pray.
Your perfect sinless offering, at the cross of Calvary,
All to provide a sacrifice, for the fall of man.
Your blood brought forgiveness, grace and mercy poured out,
Man was restored to Gods favor.
But mostly I remember, the Love in Your Eyes.
Lord I remember You.
Lord, I remember the day You died,
and the veil was torn.
You drank the cup of fury, that was meant for me.
Lord, I remember, the empty grave,
And the day You rose again.
Your resurrection victory, over death, Devil, and the grave.
