All these verses and those in between them are the word of God. You may or may not believe them but they will last for all eternity.
What man says and the rules and laws he institutes will not last. They will go bye-bye.
The words of our great, loving, generous and forgiving God are forever and that brings me great joy.
Today I want to highlight the USS Arizona memorial and a fact about it’s financing I came across while reading the back of bubble gum cards.
On March 25th, 1961 a concert was held to help raise funds for the construction of the U.S.S. Arizona memorial. The concert raised $64,000.00.
Now I am a HUGE fan of the man who performed that night but had no idea he helped raise money for the memorial. Then one day as I am sorting through some stuff in the basement, I came across bubble gum cards and started reading the information on the back. It was one of those cards that I came across this information.
The performer that night – Elvis Presley.

The day after Elvis’ passing the Navy laid a wreath at the memorial in honor of Elvis who served in the Army.
I am a HUGE Elvis fan and could not let today go by with out paying tribute to “The King.”
On my way home from work last night, Elvis sang the following and the words really spoke to me:
“And the world will be better for this
That one man scorned and covered with scars
Still strove with his last ounce of courage
To reach the unreachable star.”
“The Impossible Dream”
Lyrics by Joe Darion
from the musical “Man of La Mancha“
May these words inspire you and may you always reach the unreachable star!
Sing It Elvis! (Just click on his picture.)
