stars and stripes forever

 

Happy Memorial Day!

zs&s

I couldn’t help but think of this verse when I was working on my Scripture & a Snapshot contribution for the week. I mean, what’s more joyful than violets? And yet what could be harder than growing out of a vertical brick surface?! Talk about being between a rock and a hard place. These flowers must have patience up a storm. I could learn something from them.

I made a trip to the cemetery in town to see the amazing annual array of flags, always erected on Memorial Day weekend to honor our veterans. I always feel like someone should be singing “The Star-Spangled Banner” when I see them. (I solve that by singing it to myself.)
