Memorial Day

If you are interested in reading a brief history of Memorial Day, go here for my post from last year. I am posting two songs today that are just incredible. Please take the time to listen to them and I guarantee that you will be blessed. The first is a song by the Gaither Vocal Band called Let Freedom Ring, and the second is their rendition of The Star-Spangled Banner.

My favorite lyric from the first is:

Let freedom ring down through the ages from a hill called Calvary

I hope that as you enjoy time with family and friends today, that you will keep in mind those whose families are no longer intact because of the ultimate sacrifice of a loved one.

Happy Memorial Day!

We take so much for granted. I was reminded of this today by my father in law.
