Red flower

Day 157 Our soul has escaped as a bird from the snare of the fowlers

The flowers are a thick red colour and the stormy wind and rain the other night doesn’t seem to have taken away their colour or their startling impact. There is a message in the flowers.

Today is the 6th of June and people are remembering D-day during world war 2. Red obviously is the colour of blood and that is why  poppies are worn on remembrance day. The blood shed, sacrificed to defend people from evil. The D Day landings were the turning point of the war, but many lost their lives, 4413 allied casualties on the first day. But the Normandy day battle cost over 425,000 Allied and German troops. So many lives to stop one driven person who wanted to kill so much.

On the D Day museum website there is a video where they tell there stories of the veterans who survived the battles. It is important to tell the stories to keep the memory of the sacrifice alive.

The Gospels tell the story of Jesus. The disciples and all the followers were just keeping these memories alive so that we would not forget the sacrifice that our Lord paid for us. The D in D Day just stands for an important day, the turning point.

The day our Lord took his place on the cross and died for us is the turning point in the bible, in history, in our future. Because of this sacrifice we have a future that no one can take from us.

 

Psalm 124

Blessed be the Lord,Who has not given us as prey to their teeth.

Our soul has escaped as a bird from the snare of the fowlers;

The snare is broken, and we have escaped.

Our help is in the name of the Lord,

Who made heaven and earth.

Because of D Day in world war 2 many more thousands both then and now have been freed from death.

Because of the Day Jesus sacrificed himself for us, we all have a future and our souls have been freed from the oppression and snares of the devil.

Dear Lord help us to remember and keep all these stories alive so that we remember.

Amen
