It takes hands to build a house, but only hearts can build a home.

MEMORIAL DAY

One gift, above all others
God gives to us to treasure
One that knows no time, no place
And one gold cannot measure

The precious, poignant tender gift
Of Memory......that will keep
On dear ones ever in our hearts
Although God gives them sleep

It brings back long remembered things
A song, a word, a smile
And the world's a better place ... because
We had them for awhile!

With Memorial Day , our thoughts this weekend turn to soldiers who have made the ultimate sacrifice – and, sadly, those who will do so in the future – so that our cherished freedoms are preserved.

May the members of our armed forces be filled with courage to face each day and may they trust in the Lord's mighty power to accomplish each task. Let our military brothers and sisters feel our love and support.

Monday resolution:

May I never forget that FREEDOM is never free. Instead of simple remembering those we lost in grievances of the past, perhaps we can work to prevent the grievances of the present and future.

I like your resolution, Ma. I think we need to work out those grievances indeed and pray for our enemy as Jesus instructed us to do.

I like your blog header picture! Very patriotic!
