All Saints Day
“A saint is one who makes goodness
Dear Friends and
Today's theme calls for gloomy weather, but here in Fayetteville, it really isn't. It's ranging from partly cloudy to cloudy, but I wouldn't call it gloomy at all - and that's just fine with me!
BONUS - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VHVv79W_EpA - All Saints' Hymn: "For All The Saints" - Big Sing, October 24, 2004 - sing-along version
|All Saints' Day is a celebration of all Christian saints,
particularly those who have no special feast days of their own, in many
Roman Catholic, Anglican and Protestant churches. In many western
churches it is annually held November 1 and in many eastern churches it
is celebrated on the first Sunday after Pentecost. It is also known as
All Hallows Tide, All-Hallomas, or All Hallows' Day.
What do people do?
All Saints' Day is observed by Christians in many countries around the world. In countries such as Spain, Portugal and Mexico, offerings are made on this day. In countries such as Belgium, Hungary and Italy people bring flowers to the graves of dead relatives. In other parts of Europe, such as Austria, Croatia, Poland, and Romania, it is customary to light candles on top of visiting graves of deceased relatives. It is also observed in parts of Asia, such as the Philippines, where people visit graves of deceased relatives and clean or repair them. They also lay flowers on the graves and light candles.
In France church services in memory of all the saints are held on November 1 but by the evening the focus turns towards the dead. Cemeteries everywhere are crowded with people who come to clean and decorate family graves. All Saints' Day is closely tied with All Souls' Day, held on November 2, which is dedicated to prayers of the dead who are not yet glorified.
... It is not a nationwide public holiday in countries such as Australia, Canada, the United Kingdom, or the United States. However, many Christians observe All Saints’ Day in these and other countries.
The liturgical color is white on All Saints' Day...

I was going through photos the other day working on Family History. I came across this one and spent a few minutes reminiscing about my childhood. She was my first crush. I’m sure everyone that knew her misses her. She was special. If you don’t recognize her it’s Rose Woodard ('65) (21 Nov 1947 - 14 Oct 1984).
I haven’t changed much. Same amount of hair, about the same weight and still cute.
One of the best parts of our lives now is the memories we have.
WOWZERONI! Thank you so much, Barry!
Even though Rose was my best friend, I would have recognized you faster than I did her (although on closer examination, she looks so very much like her mama in this shot). What really floored me was that you even knew her that long ago! You and I lived in Stuart Gardens and went to Magruder School; Rosie lived in North End and went to Jackson. Rose and I were members of Trinity Methodist Church where we met in fourth grade, but you were not. It dawned on me that y'all must have met in private school. Did you both attend Mrs. Parrish's Private Kindergarten?
As inseparable as we
were, these are the best pictures I have of the two of us together.
Miss her?? I know I do!
Thanks again, Barry!
