Annie's "Remembrance Day" Page
~Celebrated every November 11th~
Thank you to all of those that have served, & are serving in the Canadian Armed Forces.

"For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword,
piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and
marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart."
~Hebrews 4:12~

~Remembrance Day~

Canada has a legal holiday called Remembrance Day that is celebrated on November 11.
~Above Information from The World Book Encyclopedia~

Thank you seems so inadequate. Let them know you appreciate all that they have done and are doing to
make your country save and free! Let them know that you are very proud of their sacrifices for you.

What is Honor (or honour)?

What do you honor? What do you respect? If we don't even know or understand what
"honor" means then how can we give it?

Let's start by looking at the definition:

honor \Hon"or\, n. [OE. honor, honour, onour, onur, OF. honor, onor, honur, onur, honour,
onour, F. honneur, fr. L. honor, honos.] [Written also
honour.] 1. Esteem due or paid to
worth; high estimation; respect; consideration; reverence; veneration; manifestation
of respect or reverence.

How can we show respect to our Veteran's? Just 2 words would be a good place to start.
THANK YOU!!!! They are just words but they can reach, touch and change a heart. We read
in the book of James that the tongue can harm us but in the Psalms we also learn that
a kind word is like honey.

"If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue,
but deceiveth his own heart, this man's religion is vain."
~James 1:26~

"How sweet are thy words unto my taste! yea,
sweeter than honey to my mouth!"

~Psalm 119:103~

Words can hurt us to the core. Words can also nurture our soul and spirit.
Unexpected acts of Kindness really do bless the receiver and also the giver.

We know from the news and history that during and after almost all the wars the soldiers were
shown tremendous respect, honor and appreciation. The pictures of the ticker tape parades and
the sailor kissing the lovely young lady are permanently imprinted in our minds. Unfortunately
during and after the Vietnam war we failed to show our service people the respect and honor
that they deserved. So this Remembrance Day tell a Veteran "THANK YOU". If you know a
Vietnam veteran make a special effort to say "THANK YOU" to them. I am sure that little extra
effort will be very much appreciated. "Better late then never" seems
to be an appropriate saying.

"I thank my God upon every remembrance of you."
~Philippians 1:3~

Please take the time to let your Elected Officials know that you don't want the vets homeless
and without medical care. The statistics are horrifying about the number of Vets living on the
street or in homeless shelters. You can make a difference. One person at a time.

"A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a
broken spirit drieth the bones."
~Proverbs 17:22~

Here are a few ideas for Remembrance Day:
1. Write a soldier in active duty. During the Gulf war I wrote TWO letters. One to APO and
the other to FPO. A letter from home or a "care package" is appreciated so very much.
***Currently this has been suspended***
2. Send a Care package. A Care package with goodies and Current news would be a nice gesture
to show your appreciation.
3. Visit a Veterans Hospital. Take some flowers from your garden,
or some fresh homemade cookies.

4. Send a Veteran a special Email Greeting for Remembrance Day
5. Visit a memorial or attend a local service or parade to honor our Veterans.
Pray for a service person. Maybe even "adopt" one as a family project. You can correspond
and even ask them if they have any prayer requests for you to pray about as a family.
7. Consider taking part in STUDENT VOLUNTEER ACTIVITIES to Veterans. Of course you will
need to always get your parents permission to do this.
8. Offer to help your church have a special tribute to the Veterans. You can do a bulletin board
of pictures of your members in their uniforms. Maybe you can add a special "guess who" or
"then & now" section. Some churches give out carnation
boutonnieres to all those who have
servered our country.
9. Some of the Veterans might benefit from a work or help weekend pr special day. Maybe the
Youth group in your church can offer to do different chores in the yards or homes of your
Veterans. You could have a sign up sheet or something similar or the Senior's Pastor and Youth
Pastor could coordinate something.
10: Do a "Random Act of Kindness". I have some ideas about that on my
Annie's April Fool's Day Page. Don't let the name of the page fool you.

In the Bible we are told that "Faith without works is dead". Unfortunately there are Christian's
who do not "live" what they believe and it is near impossible to distinguish them from the rest of
the world. Don't be one of those who say "Don't do as I do, do as I say". Let your actions
reflect your heart and love of the Lord. Reach out and bless someone this Veterans Day.

Always take every opportunity to thank our men and women in uniform
who have sacrificed so much for us! defines "HONOR" this way:
