 My today's thoughts

PRESIDENTS' DAY - THE COST OF FREEDOM


  




I opened the drawer where his folded flag rest
My fingers trace the stars and the stripes

In my mind I see it draped over the casket
where he lay

I hear Taps being played
So sad and final

Please God, don't let his time and the others  
in the service for our country be for naught

PRESIDENTS' DAY



Today in America we celebrate President's Day..
A day we honor the ones that have served our country by leading us

Some were great men who believed in God
Some were not so great and did not rely on God as they should



Do we want to be governed by a person of God
or are willing to let someone lead us who does not relay upon God

Some have put the best interest of our country first
Others have put their desire for power first



Is it possible that we are on the edge of losing
all that we in America hold dear

I pray that we will remember what our country stands for
and the men and women who have given their lives that we might be free



More that anything I pray this Nation will return
to the morals and principles that we once had

It may not be to late for us yet
God is still in control if we would only allow Him to lead us

2 Chronicles 7:14

If my people, which are called by my name,
shall humble themselves, and pray,
and seek my face,
 and turn from their wicked ways;
 then will I hear from heaven,
 and will forgive their sin,
and will heal their land.

King James Bible

MY GOD HAVE MERCY ON US







WHAT IS A VETERAN?

Whether active duty, retired, deceased, national guard or reserve
A Veteran is someone who, at one point in their life,
wrote a blank check made
payable to "The United States of America,"
for an amount of "up to and including my life."
That is honor, and there are way to many people in this country
who no longer understand it.
