Happy New Year’s my scrapping friends,
I hope everyone had a great holiday. I really enjoyed my family times sharing, laughing, eating and creating new memories. Sometimes it is those precious moments you don't realize it can all disappear in a blink of an eye. Unfortunately, for me and my family it crept up on us with saying farewell to my Uncle James. I was blessed with the opportunity of reflecting on his life story. As a young girl I heard about him receiving the Purple Heart and Bronze Star Medals but never knew why as he did not like to talk about it. As I was able to read through his accomplishments and citations of each rewards serving our country in the Vietnam War, I truly understood why he was awarded with such distinguish award metals. So I created this memory board so everyone could know how proud we were of American Hero, My Uncle James. He is now resting with many loving family members.
I was dreaming a dream…a dream so beautiful and profound,
From the battlefield to my life at home...
I dreamt a dream of peace, calm and tranquility.
I dreamt a dream absent from pain, suffering, trials and tribulations.
I dreamt a dream of bright blue skies, white clouds and pearly gates trimmed in gold.
I dream of angels singing to me the sw
eetest hymns, familiar faces and endless love all around.
I dream of being free. Free from the troubles of this world, to stand on the main line, to be a soldier in the army of the Lord
I dream my precious dream to meet my Dear God and my Sweet Savior
I dream of a great reunion, I dream to go Home.
I then realize as the warmth of heaven’s sun kisses my face. I have to dream no more,
My dream is here...my peace has been made…for my dream has come true.
Heaven is my reality…I’ll see when you get here but until then…just dream
Dedicated to my Uncle James...
