Remembering The Boys of Praha, Texas....for Veteran's Day

 
In a space of 1 year and 9 days, during World War II,
 Praha, Texas, a small community of 100,
lost most of its young men.
 
 
Nine young men, listed on this monument,
were never to return home to live out a full life.
 
 
With their deaths,
a generation of young men were lost. 
 
 
 
All but Pvt Eddie Sbrusch, who was lost at sea,
were brought back home,
 to rest here.....

A special note:
Every year there is a wonderful Veteran's Day Remembrance
held in Praha Texas.
 
It is very special,
including a fly-over of vintage aircraft
 with a flower drop over the cemetery.

Old versus New....for Friday Fences

 
A "must check-back" next year....
after a long hot summer
in Texas....
to see if the new fence
 grays to match the old cedar post.

Restored Church Becomes Library... for InSPIRED Sunday

 
The is a love story....
 of how one small community
 turned an abandoned church building, into a library.
 
 
It was just by chance that I came across the building,
on one of my drives to a neighboring town.
The community boasts a population of 90.
 
My dear readers, please take time to click HERE
and view the gallery of wonderful photos,
 of how this church was cut apart
 and moved.
 
 
It is a beautiful setting with a lovely butterfly garden.
 
 
 
 
Unfortunately, I was passing through town when the library was closed.
I will definitely plan another trip....library hours are
afternoons only.

A Show of Patriotism .....for Monday's Country Backroads

 
"O say does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave."
Lines from The Star-Spangled Banner
written by
Francis Scott Key
 
Recently I have received several patriotic books, to add to my home library.
Here is the book that works so well with my today's post.
America's
Star-Spangled Story
by
Jane Hampton Cook
Celebrating
200 years of the
National Anthem.
 
Jane is not only an author, wife, and mother, but also a presidential historian.
Receiving her book has led me to reading her blog.
In her October 8th, 2016 post, Jane reveals she is about to undergo neurosurgery
 on the 14th of October.

Farmer's Faith Declared in a Hay Field....for InSPIREd Sunday

 
Usually I post a photo of four walls and a roof top
...a place of worship.
 
I've had this photo for awhile,
occasionally pondering whether or not to post it.
 
The faith and commitment, of this family, reminds me of a song
 we sang in vacation bible school....so many years ago.
 
"This little light of mine, I'm going to let it shine
This little light of mine, I'm going to let it shine
Hide it under a bushel, no!
I'm going to let it shine"
