Memorial Day is
United States federal holiday which occurs
every year on the final Monday of May. Memorial Day is a day of
remembering the men and women who died while serving in the
United States Armed Forces. It's
traditionally celebrated by taking a picnic lunch to the cemetery and
the families gather to clean the cemetery and repair the monuments.
After which everyone gathers in a large grassy area where they put
blankets on the ground and share a meal and memories of their loved
ones. Today there is usually a parade and picnics with games for
everyone. And of course there is the Indy 500. Some still tend to
the cemetery. The Background picture is of the US Navy cemetery
overlooking San Diego bay and San Diego CA.
God is love, He cares more about relationships than
anything else. 1 John 4:7-8
Now the Bereans were of
more noble character than the Thessalonians, for
they received the message with
great eagerness and examined the Scriptures every day to see if
what Paul said was true.
9:25 And everyone who competes for the prize is temperate
in all things. Now they do it to obtain a perishable
crown, but we for an imperishable crown.
