Couldn't Have One Without the Other
This Veteran's day, thank a veteran.
We took this picture at an old auto show. Check out the mounted guns, yet set in the park where you can relax and be free. We wouldn't have one without the other.
Look again from the opposite view. It's a snack wagon. Freedom. The men who served and serve, Thank You! (Yes, that's me and Major in the background.)
So if you see a military man or woman today, thank them, or better yet, as fellow blogger Kathryn, does, pay their tab for lunch. Hey, be alert and make someones day who sacrifices for you. (That's hubbie in this one.)
"Therefore, since we have so great a cloud of witnesses surrounding us, let us also lay aside every encumbrance, and the sin which so easily entangles us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us." Hebrews 12:1 (NAS) "Do you see what this means--all those pioneers who blazed the way, all these veterans cheering us on? It means we'd better get on with it. Strip down, start running --and never quit!" (MSG)
Father, may we run, defending our country and our faith. Thank you Veterans.
I was born in cajun country. I now live in Florida with my husband Mike. My daughter Shelly, and Dan her husband, live close. My son David and his wife, Melissa, along with my three grandchildren live in Virginia. I love them all and thank God I have been so blessed.
I wrote tips for Focus on the Family "Teen Phases" magazine and have a short story in the "God Encounters" anthology. I have a story in the book, "Fighting Fear; Winning the War at Home When Your Soldier Leaves for Battle".
I once kissed, danced and swam with dolphins, and falcons have landed on my arm. Love my English Golden Retriever. I'm a sucker for chocolate and salsa.
