Memorial Day

Memorial Day.

What does it mean? What is if for, anyway? Is Memorial Day just a day when your family and friends get together to have dinner? No, it's not.

Memorial: serving to preserve remembrance

That's what it means. We are to remember our troops, those who have risked, and given, their lives for our freedom. Our safety. Our home. So we can sleep at night, in our own house, safely out of harms reach. They give up their safety for ours.

John 15:13

New King James Version (NKJV)
13 Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends.

So let us take the time to pray for those who have lost their loved ones fighting for us, and those who are wounded for us, and those who are still fighting for us.

America the Beautiful

O beautiful for heroes proved in liberating strife,

Who more then self their country loved

And mercy more than life!

America! America!


May God thy gold refine

till all success be nobleness,
And every gain divine!

Thank you to all who have served our country. Have a wonderful Memorial Day, everyone!

Well, I've done it

Hello, everyone! Welcome to my blog!

My name is Darrion Marine, and as you probably already know, I'm Willow Silver's younger sister. She has been telling me for quite some time to do my own blog, and now I have finally done it!

At the moment, I only have two blogs: The Call, which I share with my sister, and Sincerely Darrion, which is all mine. I hope you have time to check the other one out, and please, leave a comment if you like something. I'm always looking for new ideas on what to post about and would love to hear your opinion on both this blog and The Call.

Now, as an introduction post, I'm going to say a few things about me...

I am a Bible believing Christian, and I often seem like an outgoing person on the outside, but I'm really quite shy on the inside. I really like to take books and their characters and write little stories on what I think they would be like. Like Fili and Kili from The Hobbit. I'm writing mini stories on them and their childhood. I am also doing the same thing with Thorin, before he became Thorin Oakenshield. Hopefully I'll finish them soon, and then they will be posted on The Call.

Anyway, here are some pictures that describe me.

I am a bit clumsy at times, and others are often in the lead as I lag behind. I just need a little guidance. So you can guess which one of these Ninjas is me.

I am homeschooled with my sister.

 I love Legos! 

 Wilow is the Sherlock of our house, and I am the Watson.

I like to draw. 

I'm always player one when we play Wii

Willow and I are best friends and we work together, unlike a lot of sisters these days, I hear.

I hope that little overview of me was entertaining, or at least interesting. I will post more later, but until then...

of Truth
and Life
