The fighting finally stopped when a armistice went into affect between the Allied Nations and Germany on the 11 day, 11hour, 11 month, in 1928. The next year President Wilson designated November 11 as a day to remember our victory and to honor those who gave their lives and served in the armed forces. At first it was celebrated as Armistice Day but later became known as Veterans Day. It has been celebrated with parades, public meetings, speeches and a brief suspension of business. Flags are flown on all government buildings and homes, churches and schools are encouraged to display our National Flag. These events start at 11 am. This Thursday let us honor those that have served and are serving so bravely. I am also reminded of those who were called and have served God to take the message or Gospel of Jesus Christ in to all the world, (Romans 1:9). We will never know them until we get to Heaven and yes, there are many unmarked graves, (Acts 7:59-8:2). Not only have others served God in times past but there are those who are serving today. We may not know who they are but rest assured God knows and His eyes are upon them, (Colossians 3:23&24). I am also reminded of Jesus Christ who gave His life for us that we could be free from the penalty of sin, (John 3:16, Romans 6:22&23). See you in Church next Sunday.
