Hearts are heavy now, dear Lord
For WAR is looming there.
Our prayers are calling out to you,
Our thoughts too much to bear.
Be with our loved ones--THEY NEED YOU.
Guide them, lead them, see them through.
Bless our leader, for we know,
He asks Your blessings, and needs them so.
Protect the innocent, shield their lives,
As bombs and missiles streak the skies.
Open our hearts and fill us with grace,
Guard our loved ones in that place.
This I say, in earnest prayer,
THANK YOU LORD
I know YOU'RE there.
As we celebrate today with barbecues and relaxation let us always be thankful for the brave men and women who have fought to protect this great country and who are willing to give their lives for the freedoms we have every day. I am proud and grateful for all those close to me for their selfless service to our country
