Memorial Day, Bayville New York 2007
Eternal Father, giver of Love and Life, the source of our freedom and the protector of our Nation.
We offer to You our Praises and Thanksgiving for You are all Good and Merciful. And “your mercies have followed us all the days of our lives.”
As we come together on this special day of remembrance..
We remember first of all how you have loved us.
We remember also specially the men and women who offered their lives serving our nation and fought hard for freedom and justice for all of us to enjoy. Eternal rest grant unto them Lord and Let Perpetual Light shine upon them.
We remember their families and love ones and we pray that they be comforted in their sorrows.
Father, we entrust to you our nation, the leaders and those whose who are continuously defending our values and freedom against the evil of terrorism.
Bless us with Peace eternal Father,
Grant to us your protection and guidance. Assure us with your power so that “even though we walk in dark valley we will fear no evil for you will be at our side.” Amen
This is a site of "Leaps of Faith" experiences and reflections. Be it Philosophical, Theological, Practical or Personal. It is also a site of Biblical reflections. But Above all, This is a site for YOU and ME.
"Leaps of Faith"
"LEAPS OF FAITH" Can be a religious movement of a person, an inner movement of belief, of trust on the greatest power of all, The Supreme being..Our Creator and Maker..Our God. They can be resolutions of a person everyday in his life to move forward, to be a better person, and to start a new life. They can be decisions of a person in times of great uncertainties, when he is not sure of what will come or happen and he makes a leap of faith. They can be steps, difficult steps that a person makes on his way to change or to start anew. Or they can simply be a persons resolve to fly, to travel..to widen his horizons, to learn more about life and to grow. These are Leaps of faith we make everyday and in great moments of our lives and they are worth considering and reflecting.
