Memorial Day 2009


God bless America is one of my favorite patriotic songs. On this Memorial Day, we think of those who have given their lives in service to our country. We also honor and thank the men and women who are currently serving in our military. Because of their commitment and sacrifice, we are able to live in a free country and live and worship as we choose.

Many thanks to all in the military today! We love and appreciate each one of you!

As I looked at our Memorial Day spread, I realized that those we were celebrating and honoring were stuck over in Iraq with very little.

Please continue to pray for our troops and for the families of fallen soldiers.

Well said, Ruthie! Sorry I haven't been over here lately. I am just now catching up on some overdue reading. Busy season of life.
