Memorial Day – a day to remember
Those who gave their lives
That we might enjoy freedom.
How quickly that freedom dies!
Some want our soldiers to believe
They are giving their lives so we
Can live in liberty and can behave
However we choose – we are free!
Free – what do you think it means?
Free to worship as we please –
Free to squander resources at random –
Free to waste and abuse? Jeez!!
Today more than ever before,
We must exhibit a life of respect.
We must oppose the forces of hate
And show love for all … Otherwise expect
I want to be free to see a world with:
- no war
- no hate
- no hunger
- no suffering
- no abuse
- no prejudice
- no squandering
May have to wait for the Promise of Eternity, huh?
JUST LOVE ONE ANOTHER!!!
Have a Love-filled Memorial Day
Be the Missing Peace!!
See you tomorrow
We are learners all
Living in Discovery
New every morning

We cannot hold on to life.
It is not ours to control.
The winds of time blow over us,
And our life continues to roll.
Jesus gives us a precious gift,
The one we can count on today
And always: PEACE! He gives it
To us… speaks it as He is going away.
He leaves us with a peace that
Passes all earthly understanding.
He promises, “I will be with you…
Love Me – Obey Me,” He’s commanding.
Reading scripture daily is a way
To know the Word and live it.
Praying daily is a way to receive
His love, so we can give it.
Love, Life, Word and Spirit are
The way His peace we receive.
The reality of these gifts are ours
When we learn His Word and Believe.
Let not your heart be troubled.
Let go your grasp for life’s control.
Give it to God, your Anchor;
Let His peace permeate your soul.
Happy Memorial Day in the USA
(A day to remember those who
have fought and died for our freedom)
See you tomorrow
