I hope this finds you well rested after a wonderful Memorial Day holiday weekend!
I know we had quite a good time.
I guest posted at Lines From The Vine today! Don’t forget to drop by!
I found a wonderful poem for Memorial Day.
Here it is:
A National Moment of Remembrance On Memorial Day
“That poem about where “poppies blow”
And, “the crosses, row on row”
Still rings true, these ninety years
After written, still brings tears.
We still have Dead, “amid the guns”
And lose our young and our loved ones
Those who lived, “short days ago”
Who, “felt dawn, saw sunset glow”.
In Flanders Fields, “the poppy red”
Still grow near where the blood was bled
They, “Take up our quarrel with the foe”
And still die for Freedoms that we know.
They pass, “The torch” to, “hold it high”
And not, “break the faith with us who die”
For they, “shall not sleep, though poppies grow”
Beneath all those, “crosses, row on row”
In Flanders Fields.”
Del “Abe” Jones
We had a wonderful weekend just resting and having family time. It is soooo nice to go into a week re-energized and refreshed.
My Dad, who has a very full day
My Mom, who is getting to the end of her pregnancy
Mrs. Jenny, has a hurt back
The Blackwell’s have a medical appointment this week
Today I Am Thankful For:
My new blog home is almost complete! I decided to switch from Blogger to WordPress, because Blogger doesn’t allow enough customization for me. I really like it so far!
Here is the before:

What I’m Learning
I am learning that fires in Georgia and Florida do affect Alabama very much…. our weather has been very smoky and hazy. Not fun at all!
If you fully obey the LORD your God and carefully follow all his commands I give you today, the LORD your God will set you high above all the nations on earth.
