Luke 1:47 Mary says here, “And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Savior”.
And my heart took me to Luke 2:78 “Through the tender mercy of our God whereby the “dayspring” from on high hath visited us.” Her “dayspring”, the light of day! Because then comes this:

Luke 2:79 “To give LIGHT to them that sit in darkness and in the “shadow of death” to guide our feet into the “WAY OF PEACE”.

It is said that Mary, the mother of Jesus sang a song in Glory to God for His Love to bring our Messiah to us, our blessed Redeemer, the Holy Son of God. “The Magnificat” is how it is listed and was original in Greek, but became much better used in Latin music amongst those ‘gifted to harmony’.

Mary sang! She sang although her life was now so changed, her journey had a new beginning. She sang from her heart of spirit again and again, and called herself His lowly servant. She knew one day, all generations would call her blessed. She was! She knew His Blessing to the World before everyone else on Earth! Can you imagine how beautiful her song was to Him? I cannot fathom the Magnificent Holy Love of her song to Him:

“My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord,
my spirit rejoices in God my Savior
for He has looked with favor on His lowly servant.
From this day all generations will call me blessed:
the Almighty has done great things for me,
and Holy is His Name.
He has mercy on those who fear Him
in every generation.
He has shown the strength of His arm,
He has scattered the proud in their conceit.
He has cast down the mighty from their thrones,

and has lifted up the lowly.

He has filled the hungry with good things,
and the rich He has sent away empty.
He has come to the help of his servant Israel
for He has remembered His promise of mercy,
the promise He made to our fathers,

to Abraham and His children for ever.”

American Flag

A very current attack on American soil has occurred.  The terrorists are again feeding the evil that dwells within them.  We keep our America in Prayer, we ask God to continue the Freedom and Love of this Nation and to Lighten the hearts of those held in darkness.

Philippians 1:3-7
“I thank my God upon every “remembrance” of you, (America), always in every prayer of mine making requests for you all with joy; for your fellowship in the gospel from the first day until now, being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a “good work” in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ; just as it is right for me to think this of you all, because I have you in my heart, inasmuch as both in my chains and in the “defense and confirmation” of the gospel, you all are partakers with me of Grace.”

This morning, I prayed for many needs.  I prayed for the remembrance of this Country, and my own sweet loved ones.  On this day, America, again is recalling the heightened measures our country has experienced.  He is watching over every one in this World.  May the joy, peace, love, and determination never fail our “America” that was built upon His Word.  It is with the unfolding of His Love and Light that extends so much to the World itself.

So many years ago, when Viet Nam was on the forefront of our America, I wrote a poem in honor of those who gave their lives for our freedom.  Many friends and family members of those I knew had given the ultimate sacrifice.

John 15:13

“Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.”

                            IN REMEMBRANCE

THE  BLACK  ROSE by Joan A. Pfeiffer

Mourn you sweet flower,

Shed your tears of dew,

Unfold your dark petals,

In memory of those we knew.

The soil you grow in,
Lays a blanket over each departed soul.
Your roots stretch through the ground,
To comfort their sorrows and cleanse souls.

Your dark, loathsome stem,
Tells of their once despicable lives.
And now returned to God,
They encounter neither hardships nor strife.
