Friends, Family, and Freedom


(Taken July 4, 2009)
I'm leaving today for a mini-trip!  I'm leaving this morning with some friends from church who offered to give me a ride.  We are all traveling to attend the wedding of a mutual friend in Indiana.  Ben will not be coming, as he has to work, but I'm really looking forward to a fun, free trip to Indiana, seeing my family over this holiday weekend, attending the wedding, and meeting my new niece!  What a blessing!  I'll be back Monday evening.

In case you need a reminder of the reason we commemorate Memorial Day, watch the movie below.  Even if you've watched it before, it is still moving.  The musical accompanist drives me a little batty with her artistic license as applied to Amazing Grace, but you can just mute it.

Thanks for the Memorial Day reminder. We need to keep this in front of people, never forgetting the service rendered by our countrymen. Have a wonderful trip -- praying traveling mercies for you!
