An old-fashioned Memorial Day

Both of our fathers served in the military in WWII. My husband’s father continued in the service until he retired.  One of our sons was in the Army, and our youngest son is currently an officer in the Navy.  Our son who is not in the military makes contributions to the safety and effectiveness of our troops through his research (he is a college professor).

Each Memorial Day my husband and I try to visit a little farming community in Nebraska, where my husband’s parents were born, and where some of our family and friends still live.

This Memorial Day, we were at the Tekamah cemetery for the 8:00 service.  There we paid tribute to the military men and women who gave their lives for our country. Continue reading

Yesterday, March 2, 2018, was Billy Graham’s funeral.

He touched the lives of countless people, including the households of both my husband and me when we were growing up.  Our parents, and we, listened to Billy Graham on the radio, and watched him on television, as he preached at many Crusades.

I was in high school when Billy Graham had a crusade in Denver.  That evening, to my surprise, I found myself walking down the many stairs, joining thousands of other people on the floor of the auditorium.  There I rededicated my heart and life to Jesus Christ, my Lord and Savior.

Hundreds of millions of people in 185 countries, had their hearts touched and changed as Billy Graham preached the Word of God, and shared the love of Jesus, with grace, simplicity and truth.  We can’t know how many people’s lives have been changed by all those people who heard Billy Graham preaching, and then shared with others.  And people still hear his preaching at the Billy Graham website (www.billygraham.org).
