Memorial Day Weekend

(I am re-posting this from last year)

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

Happy Memorial Day Weekend!

    Hi Courtney!

    Are you doing anything special this weekend?

    In Christ,

    P.S. Did you hear the news about Steven Curtis Chapman? I posted about it on my blog.

    We are not doing anything special- I think we are just spending some time together as a family.

    Are ya’ll doing anything?

    I did hear about SCC- that is such a tragedy. I have been praying for him and his family.

    God bless!!

    Not really. We’re just hanging out as a family today too.

    We’ve been praying for the Chapman family also. I just feel so bad for them! I can’t imagine what they must be going through at this time.

    In Christ,
