Sunday's Thoughts

"And He said to them, "Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned." Mark 16: 15,16 NKJ


Sung at the completion of the Battle Monument, July 4, 1837

By the rude bridge that arched the flood, their flag to April's breeze unfurled, Here once the embattled farmers stood And fired the shot heard round the world.

The foe long since in silence slept; Alike the conqueror silent sleeps; And Time the ruined bridge has swept Down the dark stream which seaward creeps.

On this green bank, by this soft stream, We set today a votive stone; That memory may their deed redeem, When, like our sires, our sons are gone.

Spirit, that made those heroes dare, To die, and leave their children free, Bid Time and Nature gently spare The shaft we raise to them and thee.


Have a blessed Lord's Day!

Kim, your post was so sweet this Lord's Day.
I really love Lee Greenwood! We got to see him in concert this past weekend at the Sean Hannity Freedom Alliance Concert! It was such a blessing to be there!
Have a wonderful week of homeschooling!

P.S. How is your son doing in college?
