Welcome my friend, grab your cuppa & get comfy for our time of tea & reflection together. Today we are reflecting upon the victory that will be won!
While honoring the brave men & women who are demonstrating amazing courage & fortitude in this battle to keep us protected against an enemy that seeks to overwhelm us.
As in many families around the globe at the moment. I have close family members who are in the thick of the battle.
My eldest daughter, younger sister, stepdaughter & a son in law all work in the medical field, most are front line fighters on this current CoVid19 battlefield.
Our remaining four daughters & son in laws of our combined family, are deemed essential workers, supporting the fighters on the front lines.
Against an enemy that is invisible to the naked eye, that lies in wait to ambush its victims on homeland territory, torpedoes itself through the air from its carriers & survives all current weapons fired against it.
An enemy that has invaded all the nations of the world & is decimating populations that were not prepared for its ferocity in battle.
But the war will be won!
..For the Lord your God is the One who goes with you, to fight for you against your enemies, to give you victory!”
He is with these brave men & women in each & every country! That He has positioned in the right places, “For such a time as this…”.
Including our family members who continue to fight for the lives of their patients & fellow citizens, my friend.
Just as those tenacious men & women did in previous battles, against sinister enemies that also sought to annihilate & overwhelm populations throughout history.
We shall remember them
This weekend we have ANZAC day = Australian & New Zealand Armed Corps here.
Where Australia & New Zealand, remember & honor our brave men & women who fought side by side in past wars, on battlefields across the globe to protect the entire global community from evil tyranny.
ANZAC Day is normally commemorated with Dawn services, then veteran & serving Defence personnel march in parades during the day with Air Force flight displays overhead.
However this year because of this current battle these traditions can not take place.
Though with our indelible Aussie spirits here in Australia this will not stop the commemoration of this important day.
Each household has been asked to fly our Australian flag out front with a lit lantern or candle at Dawn to show our unity of respect & gratitude this year.
And hubby & I will be praising God for the courageous men & women who go to battle, fighting to protect us from forces that seek to harm us!
From the dawn of a new day,
To the setting of the Sun,
We Shall Remember them,
Lest we forget!
Until next time,
You’re very welcome to join me in The Reading Nook
