WHAT VETERAN'S DAY MEANS TO ME...


I FLY THE FLAG BECAUSE I LOVE THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. I SALUTE THOSE THAT ARE SERVING UNDER OUR FLAG TODAY AND I SALUTE ALL THOSE WHO HAVE DIED WHO WILL BE REMEMBERED UNDER OUR FLAG........ EVERY DAY I WATCH THE NEWS AS ANOTHER SERVICE MEMBER IS KILLED IN THE LINE OF DUTY. WATCHING THESE IMAGES DAILY REQUIRED ME TO PAUSE AND REFLECT AGAIN ABOUT ALL MY BROTHERS AND SISTERS WHO SACRIFICE SO THAT YOU AND I CAN ENJOY OUR FREEDOM....OUR MEN AND WOMEN OF THE MILITARY WAKE UP EVERY MORNING WITH THE DESIRE TO SERVE OUR COUNTRY.


LETS REMEMBER ALL OUR MILITARY TODAY ON VETERAN'S DAY.



EACH SOLDIER IS STRONG AND DETERMINED TO PROTECT THIS WONDERFUL COUNTRY THAT YOU AND I LIVE IN. I AM SO PROUD TO BE AN AMERICAN TODAY. I AM SO PROUD TO BE THE WIFE OF A 20 YEAR ACTIVE DUTY NAVY MAN. AND I AM PROUD TO SAY THAT I AM A UNITED STATES NAVY VETERAN.






I START MY DAY WITH THE SAME PRAYER FOR OUR SERVICE MEMBERS. I KEEP THEM ALL IN MY PRAYERS BECAUSE I NEVER TAKE FOR GRANTED THE FREEDOMS I ENJOY HERE DAILY. SO LET'S GIVE THANKS TODAY TO ALL OF THE BRAVE MEN AND WOMEN
OF OUR MILITARY. YOU CAN START BY KEEPING THEM IN YOUR PRAYERS EVERYDAY...LET'S BRING THEM HOME SAFE.....









SO TODAY I WILL LAUGH AS I REFLECT ON MY MEMORIES OF SERVING IN THE UNITED STATES NAVY, I WILL ALSO CRY FOR THOSE THAT HAVE LOST THEIR LIVES.......BUT I WILL ALSO CELEBRATE TODAY EACH AND EVERY SERVICE MEMBER THAT IS STILL SERVING.





SO TODAY AS YOU GO ABOUT YOUR DAY REACH OUT AND SHAKE A VETERAN'S HAND AND JUST SAY THANK YOU.


LETS REMEMBER THEM IN OUR HEARTS 



*****MY PRAYER*****


HEAVENLY FATHER I THANK YOU FOR ANOTHER DAY HERE IN THE STATES WITH MY FAMILY. I THANK YOU FOR KEEPING MY FAMILY SAFE. I THANK YOU FOR WATCHING OVER AND PROTECTING ALL OF THE SOLDIERS WHO ARE SERVING THIS COUNTRY THIS MORNING. KEEP THEM SAFE AS THEY HEAD INTO HARM'S WAY THIS MORNING.




LORD I GIVE YOU ALL THE GLORY PLEASE CONTINUE TO PROTECT ALL BRANCHES OF OUR MILITARY BOTH DAY AND NIGHT. I ALSO PRAY THAT YOU WILL REVEAL YOURSELF TO EACH ONE OF THEM IN YOUR OWN SPECIAL WAY. I PRAY THAT YOU WILL SUSTAIN THE SOLDIERS AND KEEP THEM SPIRITUALLY STRONG. MAY YOUR GRACE SURROUND EACH AND EVERY ONE OF THEM TODAY AND ALWAYS.

FATHER I PRAY THAT PEACE WILL ONE DAY COME, BUT UNTIL THAT DAY COMES I PRAY THAT YOU GIVE GUIDANCE 2 ALL OF THE LEADERS IN OUR COUNTRY SO THAT WISE DECISIONS WILL BE MADE TODAY. THESE SOLDIERS ARE SOMEONES MOTHER, FATHER, SISTER, BROTHER AND THEY ARE ALL YOUR CHILDREN SO I PLACE MY CONFIDENCE IN YOU TODAY AND ALWAYS. I ASK THIS IN JESUS NAME. AMEN.

    Lashon, I went to meet my husband today for lunch at my favorite little place by the water. It was beautiful..He walked in all handsome in his uniform. I never felt so much pride as I did seeing him in that uniform. Whe nhe walked in I felt the pride of loving a man that has sacrificed for his family. Happy Veteran's Day Lashon to you and your husband.
