Thankful Thursday: Veterans Day

Because it is so moving, I am re posting this video.
This young man adds his amazing voice.

Recently my son, Eric, returned from four years active duty in the Navy.
Currently my son, DJ, is overseas in Afghanistan, serving with the Army National Guard, as a paralegal.
My daughter-in-law, April, is preparing to leave for overseas with the Army National Guard, as a medic.
My son, Mike, is a reservist with the Army National Guard Reserves, as a medic.
My son, Taylor, will be leaving this month to begin basic training in the Army.

Many of my family has served this country.
I'm sure many more will.
I praise those who did, in whatever capacity.
I pray for those who are.
I pray for those who will.
God bless them all.
I pray that we, the blessed, will remember our freedom isn't free.

"A hero is someone who has given his or her life to something bigger than oneself."
Joseph Campbell

Thankful Thursday: Grace Alone...

We are in a military family too. Mostly inlaws served or are serving.

God bless them all.

Moving indeed, Carla. It brought tears to my eyes. Thank you so much for posting it and I wish your family safe journeys.

Thank you to you and all of your family that has, or continues to serve! We also have a lot of military members in our family, one came home in a casket so you are very right that freedom IS.NOT. FREE.

God Bless you and yours!
