Happy Memorial Day 2012


 'Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord; He is trampling out the vintage where the grapes of wrath are stored; He hath loosed the fateful lightning of His terrible swift sword; His truth is marching on......Glory, glory, hallelujah!  Glory! Glory!  Hallelujah! His truth is marching on.'    From the song 'Battle Hymn of the Republic'  by Julia Ward Howe and William Steffe.  


 Oh may it be so!!!


How very true!  Would that we would never forget the price of our freedom and lives given yet to preserve it at home and abroad.  My Father fought in WWII and I yet remember some of the things he told me about his part in the War.  And remember when I read the book 'Unbroken' by Laura Hillenbrand? .... it gave me a better understanding of what our POW's have lived through...to protect our country.  I highly recommend 'Unbroken'.

Our Son is home from AZ for a visit this week and we are having a wonderful time together.  The temp here was around 92 yesterday....and our AC is not working so it was fans and more fans here.  Church services were a blessing yesterday, so much.  God's word is a blessing.  I need to hurry away, There are plans for the entire day, pretty much.  Wishing you a Happy Memorial Day....
