Do not forget to show hospitality to strangers,
for by so doing some people
have shown hospitality to angels without knowing it.
Hebrews 13:2 NIV
One of our Christmas traditionsis to visit my hometown cemetery.
We try to visit prior to the ushering in
of each new year. One year,
we arrived just before midnight
and jumped the gate with flashlights.
Old cemeteries are beautiful.
Our loved ones are laid to rest in a
beautiful peaceful place.
There is only joy in our visits.
Aileen, my friend of over 40 years, walks down the hill with
me to visit Mrs. Dale, another friend's mother's resting place.
After visiting, our tradition, includes a drive up and down
the U-shaped cemetery road before leaving.
Here's the top:
Descending. Look close, we have visitors.
