Memorial Day...

Day is done
Gone the sun
From the lakes
From the hills
From the sky All is well,
safely rest.
God is nigh.

Fading light Dims the sight
And a star Gems the sky,
Gleaning bright From afar,
Drawing nigh,
Falls the night.

Thanks and praise,
For our days,
Neath the sun,
Neath the stars,
Neath the sky,
As we go,
This we know,
God is nigh.

"Greater love has no man than this, that he lay down his life for his friends."

~ John 15:13 ...

Honoring those who gave the ultimate sacrifice for us and thanking those who have or are currently serving to protect our freedoms.
Honoring, thanking and praising our Lord who gave the ultimate sacrifice... the life of His son for our freedom from sin & death... for our salvation.

Happy Memorial Day!
