DON’T FORGET AS DAYS PASS
HAVING, not long ago, watched Songs of Praise on Remembrance Sunday, I was very stirred by our Christian heritage as a country as I also remembered so many who have lost their lives.
The poppies will again be unpinned, and the musician playing The Last Post will be the echo of a sound just played every Remembrance Sunday since 1919.
But that Remembrance tune does continue to be played when soldiers who give their lives for their country are each brought home to be repatriated with their home ground and their families.
“Lest we forget...” is a phrase often used to express that we must not forge those who have fought and died, past or present. We will never forget.
We must never forget the roots of our Christian heritage which in its original truth personifies love, hope, peace, courage, everyday decency and freedom – which are things worth fighting for.
He has promised to love us eternally, we must be with Him for eternity.
So I wrote this poem about heaven, which hopefully expresses that which is often regarded as ’a different view’ and yet it speaks of a future where even death itself is not the end but really a new beginning because we were worth fighting for too. Val Hayward Address supplied
