Happy Memorial Day Weekend!

Memorial Day
Memorial, Memorial, Memory,
The Memory of soldiers who fell,
But not into a great big well,
They died those days,
For their families some say,
But I believe "for freedom" come what may!
They died bravely and fought well,
And in the end Heaven did swell.

Overwhelming
Resolute
Imposing
Amazing
The Lord is God!

  2. Very nice Memorial Day entry to your blog! I was happy to see your pictures from your recent trip to D.C. When we viewed the Viet Nam War memorial, it was so moving - all those names, and people were there to see specific names. I liked how you saw the beginning, the middle, and then the end. My parents remember memorial day as "Decoration Day" - a day to decorate gravesites with flowers.

    Have an enjoyable weekend!
