Veteran's Day


Let's remember to thank the Lord for those who have served in the past and are serving us and our country now. Freedom isn't free! Please be sure to teach your children why we celebrate Veteran's Day.
One military wife who is such a blessing to me is Christina. She is keeping the home fires burning, training her four wonderful children, serving in their local church, homeschooling, etc while her hubby serves in Iraq. I count it an honour to have gotten to *know* her through her blog. Please visit her sweet, soothing blog by clicking here.


I have cousins serving in the military in several different countries right now. Our family offers prayers for each of them daily. Even though we may not know exactly where they are, we have a God who knows their exact loacation and their every need.

You're so right. We are blessed to live in a country where we have so much freedom. Our veterans are heroes who sacrificed to give us this freedom.

God Bless America

Hugs!

CONNIE'S THOUGHTS FROM THE HEART said...

Thank you for this post Pam.We can never hold those serving our Country up before the Lord enough. They give so much. I am so thankful for those who have served in the past and that are serving now and for those who will serve in the future, just so that we can have the freedoms we all hold dear. Have a good week, Pam. connie from Texas

I would like to honor my Dad who landed on Normandy with the 474th Fighter Group two weeks after D-day when it is was still pretty hot. I have a picture of Bob Hope in a P-38 supposedly wearing my Dad's service cap. Likewise I would like to honor my son who went all over the world in the Army and had to take a medical discharge because his knees gave out after 7 years of service. Had they not he would have gotten his Ranger Tabs. My brother in law who as a Lt. in Nam took a round in the ear and lost a thumb. My two nephews, one a graduate of the Air Force Academy and one currently a cadet.

We have Bruce's brother serving overseas in the US Navy on the USS Enterprise. We're proud of him! Not to mention our dear friend Daniel Grigg (AIR FORCE) and Jay Carr (ARMY) both serving in Iraq. Well, Daniel is home right now, but has been there twice and is more than likely going back.
