God Bless Veterans


My son, David served in Operation Iraqi Freedom. I love those who serve or have served giving of their lives, time and effort for us and our country. This is just to say:

THANK YOU, AND I AM PROUD OF YOU!

I want to leave you with this scripture of encouragement.

"Do you not know? Have you not heard? The Everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth does not become weary or tired. His understanding is inscrutable, He gives strength to the weary, and to him who lacks might He increases power. Though youths grow weary and tired, and vigorous young men stumble badly, yet those who wait for the Lord will gain new strength; they will mount up with wings like eagles, they will run and not get tired, they will walk and not become weary." Isaiah 40:28-31

God bless each and every one of you.

I miss being in the military. I'm ready to go overseas and see something new.

Kathy, were you in the service? or just your hubbie, or a military brat?? :)

A HUGE thank you to your son for his selfless service to our country -- and to your precious family for the sacrifices you have made as well.

Karen, I am starting a new "Blog of the Week" feature on my blog (hopefully next week ... I'm having the button made) and you, my dear friend, are my first featured blogger. ;0) Just love your sweet spirit and the wisdom and encouragement you give.

Karen said...

Melinda, thank you so much. Blog of the Week, you know that's kind'a scary! I love that you thought of me. You are the one who has learned wisdom alot earlier than I ever did. Thank you dear friend. Blessings*
