We Will Not Forget

We Will Not Forget


 We will not forget the blood that was shed.
We will  not forget it was for us you bled.
Your courage was ever true
as you served our red, white and blue.
We will never forget those who died to keep us free
Those of us who now enjoy sweet liberty.
We honor all of our servicemen on today and every day
And for their loved ones remaining, we do earnestly pray
We will not forget heroes, young and old
Those men of honor and so very bold
They stood for you and they stood for me
As they preserved for us our sweet liberty .
No, we will not forget the sacrifice and service brave
of those who lie in a foreign grave
And those who came home with scars and grief
For their comrades whose lives were all too brief.
No, we will not forget
We must never forget!

3 Bullets

There once was a man who had nothing for his family to eat. He had an old rifle and three bullets.

So, he decided that he would go out hunting and kill some wild game for dinner.

As he went down the road, he saw a rabbit. He shot at the rabbit and missed it. The rabbit ran away.

Then he saw a squirrel and fired a shot at the squirrel, but missed it. The squirrel disappeared into a hole in a cottonwood treel.

As he went further, he saw a large, wild "Tom" turkey in the tree, but he had only one bullet remaining.

A voice spoke to him and said, "Pray first, aim high, and stay focused."

However, at the same time he saw a deer which was a better kill.

He brought the gun down and aimed at the deer. But, then he saw a rattlesnake between his legs, about to bite him, so he naturally brought the gun down further to shoot the rattlesnake.

Still, the voice said again to him, "I said, 'Pray, Aim high, and Stay focused."

So, the man decided to listen to God's voice.

He prayed, then aimed the gun high up in the tree, and shot the wild turkey.

The bullet bounced off the turkey and killed the deer.

The handle fell off the gun, hit the snake in the head, and killed it. And, when the gun had gone off, it knocked him into a pond.

When he stood up to look around, he had fish in all his pockets, a dead deer, and a turkey for his family to eat.

The snake, (Satan), was dead simply because the man listened to God.

Moral of the story:
Pray first before you do anything, aim and shoot high in your goals, and stay focused on God.
