A heart shaped rock

This post is inspired by Ms. Renee of Heart tokens. She loves hearts and sees them in various places and circumstances.

Because of her blog, I have begun taking notice of hearts as well.

This past Monday, Memorial Day, on my morning walk I saw this beauty. A rock in the shape of a heart. Normally I do not pick things off the street, but this was in the middle of the walkway. This path is fairly well-traveled, but I was the only traveler present this morning.

So I bent over and picked this one up happy to have found it.

Thank you Ms. Renee for my newly-opened eyes, I choose to see my new heart as a hello from God.

The significance that I found it on a day we remember those lost fighting for others.

Thank you, Lord, for the many tokens of appreciation in our lives.

Memorial Day

An American flag and written words stating Happy Memorial Day!

To the many brave souls … We salute YOU!  –   (

This year Memorial Day is a somber affair.

The weather is gray and bleak and appears to mirror perfectly what the current landscape is.

We give thanks the many many brave men and women to whom we/I owe so much of our freedoms.

I take this time to reflect on their service and sacrifice.

I feel especially moved this day perhaps heightened because of what we are going through. I reflect on young people leaving their homes, their lives and families … A debt we can never hope to repay.

Again, my gratitude and a prayer for their souls. Blessings!
