Memorial Day 2015

"Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends." - John 15:13

Memorial Day 2015 ~ Every Memorial Day, our Family takes a moment to remember our Military Family who we miss so much due to them paying the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom. Our tradition is to send off Balloons no matter where we are at on Memorial Day. Today, we are in Yuma, Arizona. We released these balloons in a farmers field off of Hwy 95. The owner of the field placed a "Tiny Church" for weary travelers to "Pause, Rest, and Worship". It was a sweet, unique little place to watch these balloons fly towards Heaven in honor of them and to pray for ALL of our Gold Star Families!


  1. That is a wonderful way to remember and honor those who made the ultimate sacrifice. Just lovely! Thank you for stopping in today, Carmen!

  2. Yes, God bless our Gold Star families... It brings tears to my eyes what those brave souls gave for us.

    What a lovely and meaningful tradition Carmen, a great way to raise those children. : )
