 I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Now, there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day--and not only to me, but also to all who have longed for His appearing.  2 Timothy 4:7-8
                                                                     HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY!
                                                   We don't know them all, but we owe them all.

As I contemplate the deaths of my lovesd ones - and yours....As I contemplate our loss and the empty void in our hearts left by their absence....I am more grateful than ever that this life is not all there is! Praise God! I can look forward WITH HOPE! because we have the blessed assurance of Heaven, My Father's House!            ----Anne Graham Lotz
