I remember the ones we have lost who served our country. I have seen the effects of war on our own family and I know those who have lost soldier family members during the battle. As I watched our PBS broadcast last night honoring the present and past members who have served, I was reminded of the importance of our country's need to maintain our values and beliefs. Our soldiers give more than what is asked of them.
As a bus load of Christian Egyptians are slaughtered on a bus a few days ago, because they were Christians, I am reminded that the religious wars continue. The killing of Christians was done in celebration of the non-Christian holiday. Our country has a problem with political correctness and I am not suppose to mention the Muslim holiday that they were celebrating while killing all of the people who refused to denounce Christ.
The previous owner had planted six or seven peonies in a row. I can see that I have a few different older colors that I may have to move to the new place. The mixed colors of white and pink and the straight white peony is not in this collection. I have lots of rooms in the back yard to plant more.
More photos of peonies are to come. My wife's cousin, who has been in the hospital for over two weeks, is better. The cousin reads my blog and I am grateful for that. Because of that I have never shared details out of respect for her and also because it isn't necessary. We take her husband down to the hospital each morning and seeing the smile on her face makes all of the effort very worth while. We are all praying and believing that she will be moved to a regular room, out of ICU, after such a long stay there.
I wish everyone to have a good day today. We are having a nice day with sunshine and it is wonderful to have it. Thank you for stopping by today.
