Happy Memorial Day

Memorial Day, which falls on the last Monday of May, commemorates the men and women who died while serving in the American military. Originally known as Decoration Day, it originated in the years following the Civil War and became an official federal holiday in 1971. Many Americans observe Memorial Day by visiting cemeteries or memorials, holding family gatherings and participating in parades. Unofficially, at least, it marks the beginning of summer.

Happy Memorial Day my friends; I am Praying For Our Military and Their Families on this Memorial Day;this is a day when we honor those men and women who died while serving in the United States military service. Many laid down their life that we can live in a free Country, let us pray faithfully daily for those and their ...families, what a sacrifice they make. God bless you, and oh Lord God bless America, and we know how to get America to be blessed Again, God has a plan;
2 Chronilcles 2:14 "If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land."

I hope you all have a safe and fun day, remember any free gift comes with a price.
Hugs and Blessings my friends, Barbara
