    “Declare His glory among the nations, His marvelous works          among all the peoples.” (Psalms 96:3)

"HaPpY  Red, White and BLUE MEMORIAL MoNdAy Sisters"

This is just a glimpse of just how beautiful our cemetery is done up here in our small town.
As a kid growing up in California, well, we didn't see this kind of activity at cemeteries. I'm NOT trying to be funny when I say that either, its a fact. WE were not allowed to put decorations up there, due to the gardeners/grounds keepers needing to mow etc.  So when we moved here, WOW!!!
Then after my Daddy passed away in 1984, his flag was taken and used as one with all these that go around our cemetery here for Memorial Day . To HONOR all those that served in a war..
My Daddy loved to see them when he was alive. It is pretty amazing to see.
And around 11:00 am there are some military jets
 that do a fly over, each year..
Its an awesome sound!!!

                        Do stop by Sally's for more sharing too. 

              For more sharing of BLUE  and Memorial Celebrating!!! 

Here is another couple views. Although its  hard to make out from the shadows, the first 1 of these 2 has my Dad's headstone in it.
My big Brother and Niece took these last year for me when they were here just in time to see the Flags all set up.
In fact they arrived in town on Memorial Day last year.
They moved back to the more tropical~ness of Cali
quite few years ago ..
Yes he left his lil Sister (me) here to face the humidity of summer and  the ohhh, so cold, snowy IOWA winters. 
I soooooooooo miss him...
Prayerfully they be here again to visit in early July..
oooops, please do  excuse my elderly ramblings Sweet Sisters :0)

BLESSED in CHRIST Holiday Weekend"!!!
