Episode 130: Memorial Day Doorscape

My family is very patriotic.  We have relatives on both mine and my husband's sides of the family that have served in the military.  My husband did for a time as well.  I want to say "Thank You" to all the men and women who have given their lives for this great country of ours.  Our freedom is not free.

In honor of all those Americans, I dedicate this Memorial Day Doorscape to them.

On each decoration is a couple of lines from the poem

"Memorial Day" by C.W. Johnson

We walked among the crosses
Where our fallen soldiers lay.
And listened to the bugle
As TAPS began to play.
The Chaplin led a prayer
We stood with heads bowed low.
And I thought of fallen comrades
I had known so long ago.
They came from every city
Across this fertile land.
That we might live in freedom.
They lie here 'neath the sand.
I felt a little guilty
My sacrifice was small.
I only lost a little time
But these men lost their all.
Now the services are over
For this Memorial Day.
To the names upon these crosses
I just want to say,
Thanks for what you've given
No one could ask for more.
May you rest with God in heaven
From now through evermore.
