Conor, I truly enjoyed your writing today reminding some out
there what this Holiday is all about. There are some out
there who think “oh boy, another day off!” I believe most
on Amy’s Place and other Freepers know and respect what
Memorial Day means.

None of us can help but think of those who did give their
lives for all of us and for those who were willing to do so.
Let us never forget. I didn’t know you were exposed to
Agent orange and probably did cause your cancer and lots of
others, I suppose!

As they say “War is Hell” but some are willing to go through
it for America’s Freedom. Like you say, “many are fighting
today and dieing under the worst of circumstances and more
will be killed until we’re out of there. But they fight on
with all the bravery they have.

I’m always glad to hear the stories of friends who served
in Vietnam and how horrible that war was and then you and
they were shown no appreciation when they came home.....
how sad!

I can’t think of the Senator who got elected not long ago
who bragged about being in Vietnam over and over
before crowds of people and then later confessed when he was
caught and what really ticked me off is that the people
voted him in anyway. Its the lowest of the low of him
and the people who voted for him. I wished I could call
his name but at the moment I can’t remember, but I know
you and others know this story!!!!

May God bless all those who died in all wars for us and for those still dieing.

My son and I went for breakfast this morning and then to get
some dirt and flowers and the other son came and we all worked to get them planted. Thats why I’m so late getting
to Amy’s.

Very cute, Amy.

I may get back later...right now I am very tired. I was
thinking after I rest that I may go to our seafood place and
and get some oysters to fry. I crave them about once a
month or so!

Happy Memorial Day!

“It matters not how dark the way,
How thick the clouds from day to day,
God will direct in all we do
If we take time to pray it through. —Mead
If you’re looking for guidance, follow Christ as your guide.”
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Extraordinary, incredible, amazing events occurred by God before the Israelites. Including the fire by night and the cloud by day. Think of it. Still the people grumbled. Manna, water gushing from the rock, still the people complained. Almost like every day they forgot what God had done the days before. How is that possible?

Do we do that? Take for granted all the good in our life and suppose it is the result of our doing?

Remember it is God that inspirits our sensible soul. Be thankful, have gratitude and be glad for all we have, it is for our good.

Father we pray for the peace of Israel, Jerusalem, bless them and and the persecuted believers, America, the lost and forgive us our trespasses. Thy will be done, in Jesus name, amen. God bless America!

Ugly lying b.......!!! I’m so glad you sent that article.
It just proves what liars they are. When the public votes
for liars, they just don’t care as long as they get their
handouts.

Yeah, Hitlery dodged those bullets okay just like she took
up for Bill as he was lying to everyone about the Monica
story. I remember her on the Today show, saying the right
wing conspiracy would find out the truth if they just took
time to look. She knew that he had always run around on her.

That marriage was just a political thing. Did you see
the picture of Bill in between 2 porn stars a few days
ago? That family will never cease to amaze me!

Welcome To Sunday At Amy's Place
~Remembering Those Who Gave All~


"The Mansions of the Lord"
Words by Randall Wallace



To fallen soldiers let us sing
where no rockets fly nor bullets wing
Our broken brothers let us bring
to the mansions of the Lord

No more bleeding no more fight
No prayers pleading through the night
just divine embrace, eternal light
in the mansions of the Lord

Where no mothers cry and no children weep
We will stand and guard tho the angels sleep
All through the ages safely keep the mansions
of the Lord



The Mansions Of The Lord

~Blessings To All Who Enter~

A Sense Of Dread

May 27, 2012

In Tennyson’s classic poem “The Charge of the Light Brigade,” valiant cavalry troops riding into battle are described by the imposing phrase, “Into the valley of death rode the six hundred.” Those words portray a sense of foreboding that anticipated the tragedy that lay before them.

When I was a pastor, I sometimes felt a sense of dread when heading to church meetings. Being aware of current or potential areas of conflict can easily cause serious concern. But this does not need to be the case in the church.

To a young pastor struggling with the pressures of ministry, Paul wrote, “Avoid foolish and ignorant disputes, knowing that they generate strife” (2 Tim. 2:23). This applies to pastors as well as church attenders. Our personal conduct can help to reduce the amount of friction instead of elevating it through unwise actions or words. We can model for others the biblical way to avoid, manage, and even resolve conflict. Verses 24-25 encourage us to be gentle, patient, and humble in relating to others.

As James says, “The fruit of righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace” (James 3:18). Pursuing the goal of being a peacemaker can reduce the sense of dread that conflicts generate.

O Lord, help us to turn aside
From words that spring from selfish pride,
For You would have Your children one
In praise and love for Your dear Son. —D. De Haan
Christians at war with each other cannot be at peace with their heavenly Father.

Avoid foolish and ignorant disputes, knowing that they generate strife. —2 Timothy 2:23

Bible in a Year:
Psalms 5-8

Marissa wrote a poem and recited it in church a couple of weeks ago. The following week, the minister had it printed in the Sunday program. He made a note after the poem ... "A poem by our very own Marissa". Thought I would share it with you today.

A Poem
~ By Marissa ~

When we are born, we are sinners!
When we die, we are winners!
All Ten Commandments were written on two stones!
And if we follow them, someday we'll live with tall wings and thrones.
With wings that can fly into the sky.
With the magic and love, we are free and very high.
So high as far as the Lord's eye can see!
But for this to happen, one question will stand.
Will we sin, or take the Lord's hand?

Prissy Missy
2012
