Country Cemetery

Reflecting Head Stone
Reflecting Head Stone

I was in Saunders County, looking for the Czech Presbyterian Cemetery.  Four miles west of Wahoo, NE, on state hwy 92, then 3 1/2 miles south and a 1/2 mile east.  By now, the sun was low in the sky and falling fast.

A small sign on the county road directed me down a narrow lane, like a tunnel between the tall cornfields on both sides.  A 1/4 mile down the lane I came upon the cemetery, tucked in behind the cornfields that crowded the county road.   There was still plenty of light to read the head stones in this very neat and well kept country cemetery.

The sun was just falling below the horizon as I was leaving, and a sharp light came into the corner of my right eye.  I turned and saw the sun’s reflection in this metallic coated head stone.  Was this a sign?

Thought for the Day:  It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced.                                                                                                                                                Abraham Lincoln
