Garden Of Stone ~ Anchored In Him


Unselfishly, you left your fathers and your mothers, 
You left behind your sisters and your brothers. 
Leaving your beloved children and wives, 
You put on hold, your dreams your lives. 

On foreign soil, you found yourself planted 
To fight for those whose freedom you granted. 
Without your sacrifice, their cause would be lost 
But you carried onward, no matter the cost. 

Many horrors you had endured and seen. 
Many faces had haunted your dreams. 
You cheered as your enemies littered the ground; 
You cried as your brothers fell all around. 

When it was over, you all came back home, 
Some were left with memories to face all alone; 
Some found themselves in the company of friends 
As their crosses cast shadows across the land. 

Those who survived were forever scarred 
Emotionally, physically, permanently marred. 
Those who did not now sleep eternally 
Neath the ground they had given their lives to keep free. 

With a hand upon my heart, I feel 
The pride and respect; my reverence is revealed 
In the tears that now stream down my upturned face 
As our flag waves above you, in her glory and grace.

Freedom was the gift that you unselfishly gave 
Pain and death was the price that you ultimately paid.

Every day, I give my utmost admiration 
To those who had fought to defend our nation.

We can't pray for the dead, but we can pray for God to comfort only as He can for those left behind ! ! !


As you listen to the words of Green Green Grass of Home, it is still
true today in our fight against terrorism. Unfortunately the cost
in this fight is not cheap ! ! ! Many lives were lost in the attack
on America on 11 September 2001. Today as our Armed Forces
continue to fight for our liberties and freedoms that we take
for granted just look at the the picture below. The guest book
picture tells the cost of war. Continue to pray for our Armed
Forces and their Allies. Pray that God will protect them and
the Comforter will be with the families.
