Memorial Day Poppy

Memorial Day brings out the American flag, graveside services and speeches, patriotic marching bands and the magic of local fireworks. Memorial Day also sees poppy blooms by the thousands being offered by American Legion Auxiliaries across the nation.

Easter Thoughts

We celebrate each Easter as a resurrection day

do we understand the truth--that He arose just like they say?

The plants that died in winter as the leaves that fell to earth 

with essence living on through cold and in time know a re-birth.

The grass that looks so withered will awaken to a new life
