MEMORIAL DAY MORNING WATCH
I hope each of you has had an enjoyable Memorial Day.
Iím afraid that for many folks the real meaning of the day
has been blurred in picnics, family reunions, and lots of
fun things. Surely those things are important, too, and
maybe we do not take enough time for these things
either, but were it not for the real meaning of Memorial
Day, we may not be able to do the others! Though the
actual Memorial Day maybe has passed, it is not too late
to take time to honor in our minds the veterans who
made these great days possible....and also our loved
ones who have moved on ahead of us. there is still time to say
But now changing gears---
Letís think about our own personal MEMORIAL DAYS.
We all have them. it may be an obvious day like our
graduation day, our wedding day, or something similar,
but Iím really talking about the days when we made a
special decision--- Quit one job and took another--
When we decided that this was the day to stop smoking-
-- or drinking-- When we realized that we had made
wrong choices and determined to make it right.
Each of us has our own Memorial Days, and it is good
to be aware of them, too. What days in your life changed
the rest of your life?
Chances are at those times--
You were hearing your own special music.
Itís out there-- blowiní in the breeze and
