Thank you Jesus for 2017!!
A new year is such a blessing. Amidst all the goings on of this world we have yet, another chance to accomplish great things for God and his family of believers.
I grew up in the 90’s, and there is a song that is fitting for this moment. I don’t know if you can remember but the lyrics are “…It’s been a long time, shouldn’t have left you, without a dope beat to step to…” I better quit while I am at it, ha-ha.I don’t want to be a stumbling block.
Seriously, it has been awhile! I wonder how is everyone doing? What have you been up to, lately? What new things have you experienced?
I perceive you would want to know why I haven’t’ been writing? I cannot cop out and excuse this as I was too busy to write. Because we all know or hate to admit that “we make time for the things that are important to us.” This is true, we do make time for the activities that we find important.
This was not the case for me because each of our readers are important. Well to avoid more suspense up here goes: I was on Deployment. I know? Were you expecting something real scandalous? Sorry for my candor, I am very thankful that I am back with my family. It was tough being away from home, I am very sorry that I did not tell you, our readers what was going on.
I am sure in light of current events you would understand our decision to take a break from putting up new posts. My prayer is that if we must take a break, we will be able serve you better. so hang tight, new posts come out mid Feb ’17.
I can assure you now, Teresa and I will be at it. Sharing our experiences and nuggets of wisdom we have picked up along the way. God bless you!
We take a moment every year to pause and reflect on those men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice.
For this moment We honor two types of people: those who gave all and those who never gave in. These men and women who painted the stripes of “Ol’ Glory” with their essence, and their familes who continued to press forward after their loss. We can honor them by voting, we can honor them in song, or by living our life with a heart of gratitude. America’s sons and daughters fought for our freedom to live free. We must honor them by saying thank you at least. We must put a value on the cause for which they fought and teach the next generation, so they can be prepared if our nation calls. I have lived near a Naval Base and at sunset the flag would be taken down. When it did, people stopped in silence and gave honor not for the cloth, but for which it stands “one nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all”. The servicemen who render hand salutes know the cost of freedom. They are reminded of friends lost in conflict and those who still serve. Today for memorial day, please remember the fallen , and the reason for this day.
