Memorial Day—USA

“Memorial Day, originally called Decoration Day, is a day of remembrance for those who have died in service of the United States of America. Memorial Day was borne out of the Civil War and a desire to honor our dead. It was officially proclaimed on 5 May 1868 by General John Logan, national commander of the Grand Army of the Republic, in his General Order No. 11. “The 30th of May, 1868, is designated for the purpose of strewing with flowers, or otherwise decorating the graves of comrades who died in defense of their country during the late rebellion, and whose bodies now lie in almost every city, village and hamlet churchyard in the land,” he proclaimed. The date of Decoration Day, as he called it, was chosen because it wasn’t the anniversary of any particular battle.

On the first Decoration Day, General James Garfield made a speech at Arlington National Cemetery, and 5,000 participants decorated the graves of the 20,000 Union and Confederate soldiers buried there.”  US Memorial Day

Love

Love is patient and kind; it is not jealous or conceited or proud; love is not ill-mannered or selfish or irritable; love does not keep a record of wrongs; love is not happy with evil, but is happy with the truth. Love never gives up; and its faith, hope, and patience never fail. Love is eternal 1 Corinthians 13:4-8

JOY TO THE WORLD

December 25, 2014

 And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.  And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.  And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.  And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.  For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.  And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.  And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,  Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.”  Luke 2:7-14

Collections of Thanksgiving

The beautiful colors that adorn the hillsides and line the roadways at this season of the year give us one last color explosion before the winter season arrives. We collect the leaves, acorns and pumpkins  to accent the spaces in our homes, and the splashes of reds, yellows, browns and all the colors in between give us a quilt of many colors to wrap up this season of Thanksgiving.

It is another reason to celebrate the beauty of the world in which we live and a special season to give Thanks for all our blessings.

31 Days to Simplify—Day 28

Day 28—Live Intentionally

Drifting through life will never lead us where we want to go. In order to have the life we dream about we have to live intentionally.  Set your course, write out what you want and move in that direction.

Start where you are and make daily commitments to live with intention.  Get off of auto pilot and be present.  Live in the moments for they are fleeting.
