Memorial Day - For Freedom's Warriors

Cross-posted by Maggie at Maggie's Notebook


All of us denounce war -- all of us consider it man's greatest stupidity. And yet wars happen and they involve the most passionate lovers of peace because there are still barbarians in the world who set the price for peace at death or enslavement and the price is too high.
President Ronald Wilson Reagan
September 15, 1972

For those who are in the fight for freedom now, and for those who fought before, God bless you and yours. I am grateful.

Lyrics to Praise You in this Storm with thanks to SongLyrics.com

I was sure by now / That You would have reached down / And wiped our tears away / stepped in and saved the day / but once again, I say "Amen," and its still raining

As the thunder rolls / I barely hear You whisper through the rain / "I'm with you" / And as Your mercy falls / I raise my hands and praise the God who gives / And takes away

I'll Praise You in this storm / And I will lift my hands / For You are who You are / No matter where I am / Every tear I've cried / You hold in your hand / You never left my side / And though my heart is torn / I will Praise You in this storm

I remember when / I stumbled in the wind / You heard my cry / You raised me up again / My strength is almost gone / How can I carry on / If I can't Find You

As the thunder rolls / I barely hear You whisper through the rain / "I'm with you" / And as Your mercy falls / I raise my hands and praise the God that gives / And takes away

I'll Praise you in this storm / And I will lift my hands / For You are who You are / No matter where I am / Every tear I've cried / You hold in your hand / You never left my side / And though my heart is torn / I will Praise You in this storm

I lift my eyes into the hills / Where does my help come from? / My help comes from the Lord / The maker of Heaven and Earth

I lift my eyes into the hills / Where does my help come from? / My help comes from the Lord / The maker of Heaven and Earth

I'll Praise You in this storm / And I will lift my hands / For You are who You are / No matter where I am / Every tear I've cried / You hold in your hand / You never left my side / And though my heart is torn / I will Praise You in this storm

And though my heart is torn / I will Praise You in this storm

End lyrics.

  1. Barb, my email isn't working - and probably won't for another 12 hours or so (not completely moved yet, Cox just made a mistake). Blessings to you and your family for Memorial Day, as we remember those who have served in the name of Freedom. Be safe.
