This Day of Remembrance

On this Day of Remembrance, many in this country invoke God that He might save this country.  I am reminded of a story my mom told me many years ago about a Christian couple who were trapped in their home during a major flood.  The Sheriff came by in a boat to take them to safety, but they said they were trusting in God to save them.  As the waters rose, a boat came by carrying National Guard rescuers to take them to safety, but again, they refused.  "We trust in God to save us".  The flooding continued and as the waters rose further, they found themselves sitting on the peak of the roof of their home, when a helicopter came by.  "Come with us!  We'll take you to safety!"  "No, no....God will save us.  Of that, we are certain".  The waters rose even more, swept them away and they drowned.  As they came to heaven, they were met by God and said, "We trusted in you.  Why did you not save us as you promised?"  God replied, "What do you want from me?  I sent two boats and a helicopter."

The moral of the story is that only we can save this country and return it to the greatness it once was.
