Memorial Day - 2009

Remember to honor our fallen heroes.
Greater love hath no man than this,
that a man lay down his life for his friends.

Tracy,

We are headed to our cemetery shortly. But we had one of our own fall on Friday in Iraq. Please say a prayer for the Young family.


Lovingly,
Yolanda

I didn't realize we had chosen the same verse for today. How cool! Your photo is amazing. Blessings to you!

Linda said...

Amen! To all who have served before me and given their life so freely! You are remembered today and ALWAYS, every day I put my uniform on - I remember you!

Hi Tracy,
What a great message for today and your photo is perfect. It really sums it up as far as where our thoughts should be on this day in our country.

Thanks for your visit today. I hope you had a nice day.

Hugs,
Kim

Beautiful photo and scripture, Tracy.

My sister has been recently deployed away from her two grade-school daughters (which just breaks my heart but I know is all part of the job)...one of the many sacrifices made on behalf of Freedom).

What a beautiful photo Tracy and the verse couldn't be better.
I take my freedom way too for granted. And over the years found myself thinking of Memorial day merely as the "glorified three day weekend." I just wasn't "realizing."???

Hope things are going well for you.
I just knocked off about a half a jar of pickled beets. Okok.. the truth is there's I have a handful of animal cookies that are being polished off for my snacks' dessert. ohoh* there went a horse. lol I'M SO HUNGRY I COULD EAT A HORSE! NOW I KNOW WHERE THAT CAME FROM?! OHOH* Looks like a mountain goat is fixin to bite the dust. lol
*I'm tossin you a camel! Hey, isn't there a saying that goes: I wouldn't trust him as far as I could throw him? Never trust a camel. ;) heehee
Holykisses friend,
