A MEMORIAL DAY REPOST from last year with a HAPPY ADD-ON ENDING


Happy Memorial Day weekend to all of you passing through.
May you have a wonderful time of rest and recreation with family or friends...


My front door view - Memorial Day weekend 2010

May we all remember as we smile and have fun that we still live in the greatest nation in the world. All of the pleasures and freedoms we have to do what we wish are because there is no one over us to oppress those pleasures and rights that are ours simply by living in a country where the people can have a voice...a say.



God bless the ones who are WILLING to set aside - to sacrifice - for a time in their young lives - all of those pleasures and freedoms - and GO ....to another land - to take out...to remove from power...the very ones who would like to come and oppress our people if given the chance.



God bless our military ...God bless America.
We are still one nation...under God....THANK GOD. May He never remove His Hand that overshadows our nation and blesses it and protects it. Pray....America....Pray...

Have a great weekend everybody... God's best blessings to you...

And a note I would remind my Honorable Marine if he were here to read it...and to all of you that face your own battles and struggles today...

"Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go." Joshua 1:9



RAH! Stay Strong my honorable Justin.. God protect you!

*********AND HERE IS MY ADD-ON EDIT FOR MEMORIAL DAY 2011!!! MY MARINE CAME BACK ALIVE AND WELL FROM HIS AFGHANISTAN TOUR OF DUTY...HE HAS SINCE SERVED ON A SHORT-TERM DEPLOYMENT ON A US WARSHIP OVER IN THE MEDITERRANEAN SEA INVOLVED IN THE OPERATION ODDYSEY DAWN IN LIBYA AND IS BACK FROM THAT!!! THANK YOU LORD. GOD BLESS THEM ALL AS THEY COME AND GO TO PROTECT US. FOR THOSE WHO ARE FALLEN, I HONOR YOU HERE TODAY. YOU ARE NOT FORGOTTEN.
