Question ? 5/25/12

Will this Memorial Service in Soldotna be a annual event now? or just this year ?

Can't be 2 places at the same time.

Thanks to all that served

A Big Thank You to the families that have had loved ones lost in OUR fight for Freedom world wide as we remember them this Memorial Holiday. Also a Big Thank You to all that are still alive and served Us to preserve OUR Freedoms both then & now. As we watch the spreading of those that would love to remove OUR Freedoms being ramped up by BOTH Foriegn & Domestic attacks we all may soon be involved in this fight on OUR Soil any day now for OUR Freedoms.

Also i would like to wish the Church of Jesus a Happy Memorial day Birth Day as well as this Sunday is the Feast of Pentecost which was the day the 10 commandments were given 3479 yrs ago to the Jews. This Memorial unto God is also the day the Holy Spirit indwelt Believers in Jerusalem, Israels Capital city then and for eternity where the Church Age of Grace was started 1979 years ago written about in Acts 2.
Thank You to ALL vets Past & Present for OUR Freedom. Happy Birthday Christians, the Bride of Christ and Thank You Jesus for OUR Freedom in you as well this Memorial weekend.

John 3:16, 36

As a Christian, i plan

As a Christian, i plan on attending church sunday to Honor God for giving his son Yeshua, who also gave the ultimate sacrifice for OUR Eternal Freedom.
Yahweh has appointed the Feast of Pentecost as a Memorial Day for the giving of the 10 commandments & also the start of the church age of Grace we are now in.

Thank You to OUR fallen soldiers and OUR risen savior for their love and sacrifice to set & keep us Free, now & eternally.

John 3:16, 36

Hmmmmm?

Soldotna now needs to compete with the Memorial Day Services that have historically been held in Kenai. Couldn't be because the Mayor of Soldotna wants another photo-op to support his candidacy for State Senate? Nah, that would be too obvious!

1:00pm Mon. 5/28/12

The Memorial Day Services are at 1:00pm Monday 5/28/12
in Both Kenai & Soldotna.

Just guessing here ? Most will attend the Service in Kenai cuz that is the Traditional Venue. & very few will attend the Service in Soldotna.

I drove to the New Soldotna Cemetry on Redoubt Street today
w/ my GrandDaughter.

I was sincerely Impressed ! That is a 1st Class Resting Place & a Job Well Done. Nice Gravel Roads & Gravel Walking Paths. Only saw One Tombstone so far ? There was Bear Warning signs everywhere. Now that could make for a Exciting Memorial Day Service ! That would keep ya awake during all of those speeches.
Bring your Bear Spray !
