Respectful Humble Remembrance

A Lady's Life would like to take a moment to
give thanks to the many men and women,
world wide,
who gave and continue to give all of themselves
to see that goodness, in a free world, prevails.

You will never be forgotten.
May God Bless you and keep you safe
and may the world know why you are out
there doing the difficult selfless
work that you do.


The minister was preoccupied with thoughts of how he was going to ask the congregation to come up with more money than they were expecting for repairs to the church building.

Therefore, he was annoyed to find that the regular organist was sick and a substitute had been brought in at the last minute. The substitute wanted to know what to play.

"Here's a copy of the service," he said impatiently. "But, you'll have to think of something to play after I make the announcement about the finances.

"During the service, the minister paused and said, "Brothers and Sisters, we are in great difficulty; the roof repairs cost twice as much as we expected and we need $4,000 more. Any of you who can pledge $100 or more, please stand up"

At that moment, the substitute organist played "The Star Spangled Banner."
And that is how the substitute became the regular organist!

This is a wonderful tribute to those who serve so that the rest of us can be free. Thank you, too, for the story of the organist and the smile it brought.
