Honoring All Veterans
They truly express a little of what I am feeling today.
I have family member's that have fought and died in war.
Laid to rest in Arlington.
I have family serving this country proudly.
Family member's who are preparing to serve.
And a grandson who looks forward to the day he can serve his country proudly.
I have friends that have gone to war and never came home;
And those that have.
I have friend's that have children serving.
I don't think there is anyone that I know who doesn't have family or know someone that has served.
With all the freedoms, we so richly enjoy here in America.
Today is a day of remembrance.
The values and the love of country where strongly embedded in this old gal.
New International Version (NIV)
13 Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.
Today's Devotion card
Dear God, this is a new day and I may face unexpected temptations. Please help me to keep free from evil.
"Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life.
I was chuckling today over the devotional card.
It made me smile and giggle ... because I think we all face that everyday.
Sometimes more than others.
I think this should be a standing morning prayer and verse.
So much to be thankful for.
As I reflect on what today is.
I'm extremely thankful for the men an women who serve this country for my freedoms.
To them I say
To live in this country where I can freely serve my Lord and Savior.
Say and speak whats on my mind.
To be me.
Thanking my Savior and that I can read and speak His word because of men and women that have fought for those freedoms.
I'm thankful for my Savior and each one He places in my life.
