Sunday Serenity - Happy Memorial Day!


A few years ago, my daughter, Miss S, and I 
found an old photograph album full of about 200 postcards 
from 1901 -1910 at the Salvation Army.
I paid $6.00 for it!!
I scanned some of the Patriotic ones to share with you.


Our family thanks our brothers and sisters 
who have served and are serving America 
this land that we dearly love.
We pray that you would be protected, as you protect us,
ask that our Lord would hold you in His loving hands, 
and know that we wouldn't have the blessings that we do, 
if it weren't for you.


It is absolutely clear that God has called you to a free life.



Just make sure that you don't use this freedom 
as an excuse to do whatever you want to do 
and destroy your freedom. 



Rather, use your freedom to serve one another in love; 
that's how freedom grows.  


For everything we know about God's Word 
is summed up in a single sentence: 
Love others as you love yourself. 




That's an act of true freedom.
Galatians 5:13-14
