Memorial Day - Never Forget

We who are left how shall we look again
Happily on the sun or feel the rain
Without remembering how they who went
Ungrudgingly and spent
Their lives for us loved, too, the sun and rain?
~Wilfred Wilson Gibson

A hero is someone who has given his or her life
to something bigger than oneself.
~Joseph Campbell

Cover them over with beautiful flowers,
Deck them with garlands, those brothers of ours,
Lying so silent by night and by day
Sleeping the years of their manhood away.
Give them the meed they have won in the past;
Give them the honors their future forcast;
Give them the chaplets they won in the strife;
Give them the laurels they lost with their life.
~Will Carleton

The dead soldier's silence sings our national anthem.
~Aaron Kilbourn

We come, not to mourn our dead soldiers, but to praise them.
~Francis A. Walker

I think there is one higher office than president
and I would call that patriot.
~Gary Hart

As we express our gratitude,
we must never forget that the highest appreciation
is not to utter words,
but to live by them.
~John Fitzgerald Kennedy

All praise to HIM!

You know?  HIM.  Up there!  The BIG man.  Yeah, HIM!!! 

He took care of my daddy today.  As He does everyday.  But, He made sure my daddy stayed down here with us longer.  Just like I pleaded and prayed for.

My dad's surgery was a success!  I am so relieved. 

I appreciate all of your kind words of prayer and support.  They helped me more than you even know. 

You guys rock my world.  Continued prayers for healing are appreciated MUCH!

all systems GO...

Calling all prayer warriors.  I need you now. 

Actually, more specifically...I need you tomorrow, around 7 am central standard time.  Until about noon.  Can you do that for me?

You see, my daddy is having surgery on his neck.  His C3, C4 and C5 vertebraes have broken down, if you will.  And he has bones pertruding into his spinal column.  They have to be removed before his carotid artery surgery. 

Needless to say.  I love my daddy to pieces and I need him around for a whole lot longer.  He still makes me feel about as big as that baby in their daddy's arms.

You block your dream

when you allow your fear

to grow bigger than your faith.

Your Thoughts

All that we are is the result of what we have thought.

The mind is everything.

What we think we become.
