Yesterday we happened to be seated at our club luncheon with Mr. Emmitt Luttrell…turns out he’s been in the music business for years.

Anyhow, his song, “Silent Majority” was apparently working its way up the U.K. Indie chart, recently.

As an American, this song was meant to resonate with American citizens who are disturbed by the current state of affairs here. All of the Free World ought be concerned about the extraordinary

danger the people have been put in…

Please pass it forward if you love your freedom.

Thanks everybody!!

For All of these and so much more…

 

So many wonderful things to be thankful for, every  day!

 

My Heavenly Creator, from Whom all things come, including my free will;    035

 

My family;

 

my  Sweetheart, the life we’ve made together, the love we share, and the good times we’ve had;

 

my caring and supportive friends;

 

Wise mentors who lend perspective to widen my views;

 

Good Samaritans and unnamed others whose words and deeds came when hope was low;

 

my health, home, and sustenance of daily life;

 

blessings and extra comforts so many others deserve but do not have;

 

a life with a sense of purpose, using my writing talent here

 

and in a leading funeral trade journal;

 

the love and encouragement  I receive from so many people;

 

hope, forgiveness, compassion, and humility;

a little mouse to inspire me, lend a voice to my thoughts, and tell the world my story,

even if he isn’t exactly ‘real;’     🙂

 

oursoldiers

 

the service men and women who bravely defend my country;

 

peace officers, medics, and fire dept. people keeping safety and order around me;

 

Sheldon, my tortoise;

 

Shadow, my loyal angel-dog;

 

self-control and patience for Hunter, the devil-pup 😛

 

and a life of special memories, experiences, and meaningful lessons;

 

that I was born in America, the Land of The Free,

 

where these things are mine to enjoy without fear, torture, or retribution

 

and most of all—

 

a heart to fully cherish, love, and feel SO MUCH for ALL of the above.

 

 

 

Happy Thanksgiving to All. We have certainly been blessed to call you friends.

I am your “Guest Post” Blogger on this July 4th.   My message is simple.

 My feelings are true. I Am A Proud American,  as are  many of  you.

 Take A Moment to think of this Great Country, today.

 Think of those who guard it and her people by day and by night.

  Stand up for her, and all she offers  to you. Give to her what she needs of you.

 Vote.  Display Old Glory with Pride, Respect, Dignity.

 Be gracious, be honorable, be loyal to your Country, YOUR America.

 Go forth safely, on this birthday of our Nation, with the freedom to move about —

  In appreciation for your freedom to speak, to worship, to pursue a dream…

 Give a salute to all that is represented by The Red, White, and Blue.

The ‘Cooling Board,’ Explained

Posted in bereavement, Death, Embalming Room, Funeral, Funeral home, Funeral Service Professional, Grief, Life, Losing A Parent, Loss, Memorialization, Mortuary, Mourning, Remembrance with tags , , , , , , , on February 3, 2014 by Morguie

Today we thought we would pass along this gem we found a few weeks back. It is an old-fashioned implement, the cooling board, explained beautifully by the town’s funeral director. The gentleman also speaks of his years caring for those bereaved in his community through their darkest hours, his family’s funeral home, and his personal realization that age has become an obstacle that hinders his ability to give his mental or physical best to the work anymore. He gives a candid and thoughtful testament to what it means to serve others as a small town director. We hope you enjoy this selection as much as we did.

Have a beautiful day and thank you for coming by…we hope you’ll have something to say in the comment box before you go.

Hugs,     C J  and  Morguie

Eastern Lightning

Eastern Lightning, the Church of Almighty God was created because of the appearance and work of Almighty God, the second coming of the Lord Jesus, Christ of the last days. It is made up of all those who accept Almighty God’s work in the last days and are conquered and saved by His words. It was entirely founded by Almighty God personally and is led by Him as the Shepherd. It was definitely not created by a person. Christ is the truth, the way, and the life. God’s sheep hear God’s voice. As long as you read the words of Almighty God, you will see God has appeared.
