Memorial Day ~ A Day to Remember


O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!
America! America! God shed His grace on thee,
And crown thy good with brotherhood
From sea to shining sea!


My country, ’tis of Thee,
Sweet Land of Liberty
Of thee I sing;
Land where my fathers died,
Land of the pilgrims’ pride,
From every mountain side
Let Freedom ring.


Remembering with gratitude those who have given their life in order for this country to remain free.  We pray their sacrifice will never be in vain and that the Red, White and Blue waves free forever.

God bless America, land that I love
Stand beside her and guide her
Through the night with the light from above
From the mountains to the prairies
To the oceans white with foam
God bless America, my home sweet home


Linking With Deb at Breathing In Grace

Until Next Time
