Are you a Christian?
If you are not a Christian then you might be afraid of death. We all will die one day. If you died tonight would you know where you will spend all of eternity? You might want to consider that if you aren't right about God and when you die where does that leave you. In these uncertain times that we are living in it sure is something to think about. God never promises us tomorrow. Today maybe be all that you have. Don't waste it.

Field is defined in the dictionary.
Flanders is defined in the dictionary as:

FlanĚders (flan-derz)

  1. A historical region of northwest Europe including parts of northern France, western Belgium, and southwest Netherlands along the North Sea. For many centuries it enjoyed virtual independence and great prosperity as a center of the cloth industry. The Hapsburg wars in the Low Countries caused the eventual division of the region, which suffered heavy damage during both World Wars.
  2. A Dutch-speaking region of northern Belgium. It was granted limited autonomy in 1980.


"The Lord is good, a stronghold in the day of trouble;
and he knoweth them that trust in him."
~~Nahum 1:7~~

 


Why do we get Poppies when we give a donation on Veterans Day?
Flanders Field is a United States military cemetery near Waregem, Belgium. Buried in this cemetery
are the bodies of 368 members of the armed forces who died in World War I (1914-1918).
Canadian poet John McCrae wrote the famous poem, "In Flanders Fields"


McCrae, pronounced muh KRAY, John (1872-1918), was a Canadian physician, soldier, and poet. He
contributed verses to Canadian periodicals before World War I. But he did not become famous until
1915 when he published "In Flanders Fields" in Punch, an English magazine. His poems were published
after his death under the title In Flanders Fields, and Other Poems (1919). ~Above Information from
The World Book Encyclopedia~


In Flanders Fields....
In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.
~Written by John McCrae~


Poppy is the common name for several related groups of flowers. Since the end of World War I,
Memorial Day has also been Poppy Day. Volunteers sell small, red artificial poppies in order to help
disabled veterans. In recent years, the custom has grown in most families to decorate the graves of
loved ones on Memorial Day.

It has been raised in the Orient since ancient times. The flowers of poppies are admired for their
delicate beauty and gracefulness. Most kinds are hardy and easy to cultivate. The tiny seeds are sold
for bird food. They also yield an oil used in preparing some foods. Poppy seeds are also used as
flavoring. Poppy seeds may be sprinkled on bread and rolls, or used in filling for cakes.
The common corn poppy grows wild in the grainfields and grassy meadows of Europe. The most showy
poppy is the large-flowered Oriental poppy. This poppy's red, orange, white, or salmon blossoms often
have blackish-purple centers. Many poppies are annual plants that can be grown from seed.
The poppy is one of the flowers of the month of August.

Here is what Compton's says about The Poppy:

POPPY: The brightly colored papery flowers of the stately poppies make them a favorite in rock
gardens and borders. The single-blossomed kinds range in color from white, pink, and rose to yellow,
orange, and scarlet. There are also double varieties, some with fringed petals.

The poppies are native chiefly to the Old World, but a few grow wild in North America. The plants
have lobed or dissected leaves, milky sap, and four- to six-petaled flowers on solitary stalks. The
short, many-seeded capsules open in dry weather, permitting the small seeds to scatter.

The opium poppy of Europe and Asia has been widely cultivated for its sap, from which are produced
narcotic drugs. It is also grown for its non-narcotic seeds, which are used for bread seasoning, oil,
and birdseed. Certain strains of the plant are popular garden ornamentals.
About 50 other species of poppies are grown for their attractive flowers or unusual foliage. The
Oriental poppy of Southwest Asia has scarlet, salmon, pink, white, or red blooms. The bicolored
Shirley poppy is a variety of the corn poppy, remembered since World War I as the poppy of Flanders
fields. The peacock poppy from Afghanistan has dark-spotted, scarlet blooms.

Poppies belong to the poppy family, Papaveraceae, especially to the genus Papaver. The opium poppy is
Papaver somniferum; the Oriental poppy, P. orientale; the corn poppy, P. rhoeas; and the peacock
poppy, P. pavoninum. The California poppy belongs to a different genus, Eschscholzia."


Compton's says this about Flanders Field:
"Flanders Field, a U.S. military cemetery at Waregem, Belgium; men buried there died in World War
I. The famous poem of World War I 'In Flanders Fields' (1919) was written by a Montreal doctor,
Lieut. Col. John McCrae. McCrae, John (1872-1918), Canadian physician, soldier, and poet, born in
Guelph, Ont.; served in Boer War and World War I ('In Flanders Fields'). Flanders Field
Cemetery is at Waregem in Belgium."
