Labor Day

It’s #LaborDay here in the U.S.A. – a day set aside to honor all working Americans. If you work for a living – then this day is for you.

It’s also the unofficial end of summer and the start of Fall; although, astronomically Fall is still 2½ weeks away. (This year’s Autumnal Equinox occurs on September 22ND 2022 at 9:03 PM EDT.)

Enjoy this day off (for many of us), and get ready to go back to work tomorrow.

#Top10Monday will be presented tomorrow – Tuesday.

Happy 246TH Birthday U.S.A. !

On this 4TH Of July holiday we celebrate this great nation of ours – this free nation that we call The United States Of America. We are free today because of our Founding Fathers – great Americans like John Hancock, John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, and Thomas Jefferson. Let us never forget all of those great Americans who fought – and who continue to fight to this day – for the independence and the freedom that we continue to enjoy today.

For the Lord is the Spirit, and wherever the Spirit of the Lord is – there is freedom.
(2 Corinthians 3:17)

Happy Flag Day

I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

Today – June 14TH – we observe Flag Day here in the U.S.A. It commemorates the adoption of our flag on this date in 1777.

Memorial Day

2008 Memorial Day Poster #3.

It’s Memorial Day here in the U.S.A. It’s not appropriate to say “Happy Memorial Day”, for this is a truly solemn holiday. It’s the day each year that we honor our fallen heroes – those military personnel who served their country in a time of war – and who gave the ultimate sacrifice to keep our freedom strong. They gave their life.

This is not a day for those like me who once served in the U.S. Armed Forces, for I am still alive. My day is Veterans Day on November 11TH. It is not a day for those who are currently serving in the military. That day is Armed Forces Day – the 3RD Saturday of May.

On this day I remember our fallen heroes. I will never forget.

There is no greater love than to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. (John 15:13)
