GOD AND COUNTRY (2012 MEMORIAL WEEKEND)
I am getting ready to attend the 9:00 a.m. Mass. It is the only Mass schedule for today. My husband is driving back to St. Louis from Detroit and he probably won't get home until 8:00 tonight. I will be taking my sister to the airport for her flight back to Atlanta at 3:00 p.m. We plan to go to a festival prior to heading to the airport. We had a good time at the Lantern Festival and also at the Cardinals v. Phillies game last night. I will be posting lots of photos taken this weekend in future posts. (Please come back and visit often :) and I promise to share many interesting stories!)
I took the photo below a few months ago when I was asked to help at a 7:00 a.m. Mass. I am not really a morning-person but I was glad I agreed to be there early because it was completely empty and spiritually beautiful. People don't normally attend the early Mass and I had to get there 6:45 am to get ready so it felt as if it was just the Lord and me. After we were done with setting up, I sat and waited. It was my quiet time with God. If you are a person of faith, you might share my appreciation of being in the presence of Christ. On this Memorial Day, let's pray for peace and in rememberance of the men and women who gave their lives and those served and are serving our nation so we could enjoy freedom and liberty.
