Memorial Day, Monday, May 25th.  In making plans for long weekend getaway’s, friendly gatherings, and cookouts, many times we forget the real reason for the holiday.  Memorial Day is the day we honor our veterans, past and present.  For many of us it’s a time for remembrance.  Sorrow about missing friends and family.  We military will always remember.  Let’s all take this moment to remember and pray.


I Stand Before You

I stand before you all today

But not one eye can see my way

My time arrived, to leave this earth

As fact so planned, at every birth

It happened where I had to go

My torch for life was so aglow

I transferred while in uniform

Protecting freedom, through a storm

Should I resent I died for you

Not on my life, red white and blue

Please help my family through each day

Tell all my friends, try not to stray

And of the country I did love

Do think of me, through God above

Your memories, brought forth this day

Send love to us, who could not stay
