My playdate today is of the Untied States Of America and the men and women that fought for our freedoms here in the United States. Past and present. I am honored to say thank you to each and everyone of them. I have the great pleasure of calling up family members and thanking them for their service to this country.
I have an Uncle that is laid to rest in Arlington Cemetery in a place of honor.
So to each of you and your families that have given I say thank you with a very humbled heart.
The first two photos are of my flag that I was given that belonged to my grandparents and was hang in the front yard of their home in Seattle,Washington. My Aunt Carol gave it to me shortly after I had moved back to the PNW. I just love this flag and means so much to me..I hope to pass this flag onto my oldest grandson Anthony.
The pictures below are of the display of flags that where put out in honor of those men and women that have served and gave their lives. There are even the POW flags among this display.
My husband had come home from work the other day and said, honey I want to show you something.
He pulled out his cell phone.And showed me a picture he had took from the car window coming home. He told me across the street from where he works they had made a beautiful display. How all these people where pulling over and taking pictures.
People where pulling over and getting out of there cars to take pictures.
So on Sunday when I had to do some grocery shopping I decide this would be a great time to have a wonderful play date with the camera while honoring those that served and gave their lives for my freedom.
It was a gloomy over cast day. But many cars where still coming and pulling over and looking as well as taking pictures.
It is really awesome when a company takes time to put out a display and honor those that are lost for our freedoms.
Freedom isn't free it does cost.
Just as it cost our Lord for our freedom from sin of this world and to have a life every lasting with Him.
No greater love than another to lay down his life for another.
"Greater love has no one than this then to lay down one's life for his friend."
The photos below are the display that was put out along side the road side of the business of "On Semiconductor"
Halsey near my hubby's work.
I just wish I could have captured the awesomeness of this display.
I'm sure there are many displays and events around our many communities this day. Please take time and pay your respect even if it is in a silent prayer of thanks.
Have a wonderful and safe Memorial Day!
