All is well,
God is nigh. .
People across the USA celebrate Memorial Day every year on the last Monday in May. Technically, the day is dedicated to all those who died while serving in the US Armed Forces, although many people also use the day to recognize everyone who has been in the service, whether living or dead. First known as Decoration Day, the holiday appeared in different forms right after the Civil War, growing out of the practice of decorating soldier’s graves to show respect.
“Though an army besiege me,
my heart will not fear;
though war break out against me,
even then I will be confident.
One thing I ask from the Lord,
this only do I seek:
that I may dwell in the house of the Lord
all the days of my life,
to gaze on the beauty of the Lord
and to seek him in his temple.”
