Weekend Memorial

Posted Thursday, April 5, 2012, at 3:32 PM

A name is borne upon each cross, A person, young, this Nations loss, Please pray, as if you know them well, Lives lost for us, but, to Kingdom Tell.
Weekend Memorial

I've sent this on, a time or two,
And perhaps even more,
Markers grown now, to more than a few,
And we still can't close deaths door.

Each day our young folk, live and die,
On far and distant shore,
Those we save, makes me wonder why,
We go there, any more.

They're dying for a way of life,
That Hates us, in every way,
Loving to cause us pain and strife,
And destroy us, some soon day.

Until we place no new cross,
Or see limbless Veterans any more,
Patriotism pay's that loss,
On every worldly shore.

God, dear God, please hear our cry,
As we lift our Praise to You,
Knowing yet. that more shall die,
Before you 'Drop the Shoe.'

Your Will be Done, for everyone,
As we pass to the Kingdom Age,
And those who live like Satan is fun,
Know the payment for Sin-filled wage.

Until that day, our young will die,
Protecting the Good, and Bad,
All will be Paradise when we fly,
Making 'Left Behind' very Sad.


Part of the email going around:

Santa Barbara
The first picture and the last picture are taken at the beach in Santa Barbara right next to the pier.
There is a veterans group that started putting a cross and candle for every death in Iraq and Afghanistan .
The amazing thing is that they only do it on the weekends.
They put up this graveyard and take it down every weekend.
Guys sleep in the sand next to it, and keep watch over it at night, so nobody messes with it.
Every cross has the name, rank and D.O.B. and D.O.D. on it; Very moving, and powerful. Amazing!
Did you know that the ACLU has filed a suit to have all military cross-shaped headstones removed?,
and that they filed another suit to end prayer from the military completely. They're making great progress.
The Navy Chaplains can no longer mention Jesus' name in prayer thanks to the ACLU and our new administration.
Keep forwarding this e-mail to others. I'm not breaking this one. I'm asking that you not break it either.
If I get it a 1000 times, I'll forward it a 1000 times!
Please, let us pray...

Please send this on after a short prayer. Prayer for our soldiers...

'Heavenly Father, hold our troops in Your loving hands. Protect them as they protect us.
Bless them and their families for the selfless acts they perform for us in this our time of need.
These things I humbly ask in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, Amen.'
