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                 

 

  ďTHANKS!Ē

 

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
