Friday Affirmation – Remembering Memorial Day

Friday Affirmation – Remembering Memorial Day 150 150 Skip Jennings

AmericanFlagWe end this week with the beginning of Memorial Day Weekend. For many it’s the official start of summer with the pools, trips, bbq’s and fun.  Memorial Day was once called Decoration Day for the placing of flowers on fallen soldier’s grave after the Civil War. The practice of decorating soldiers’ graves with flowers is an ancient custom. Many towns throughout the country still celebrate it like this. Traditionally celebrated on May 30th, Memorial Day officially moved to the 4th Monday in May in 1967.

I would like to wish you all a terrific Memorial Day and start of summer, please drive safely where ever your journey takes you to family or friends. I also ask you as your Friday affirmation to send a prayer to those Veterans who have lost there lives in the service to our country.

Peace and Blessings,

-Skip
