Happy Memorial Day

May God bless the families of the Military who paid dearly for our freedom. We thank them all.

May God bless our present Military and their families. May He walk with our men and women every step of the way and protect them from all harm. 




This is the male Eagle at Norfolk Botanical Gardens VA. Screen shots taken 5-27-12. A beautiful Bird that was chosen for our National Bird.

Everybody have a great Memorial Day. May you all be blessed and stay safe.
Helen

  4. Beautiful pictures Helen. Funny (odd) that it must be age, when I got the Alert and all I could see was the WHITE ROSE, I knew it was in Memorial.
    As a child, especially on Mother's Day, we wore the ROSE. Mine was always RED. I felt sorry for the folks who wore the white! (An old folk speaking)

    Good entry, I amen Jon above!!!!
    Love from here!

  11. So many don't realize that freedom really isn't free. There is a terrible price paid for those of us who enjoy it.

  12. So sad to see very little about D Day, June 1944, and any kind of thanks to our Veterans, past and present.
