Good Morning, Dear Friends and Prayer Partners! This is the day that the Lord has made and we will rejoice and be glad in it! We have slightly chilly weather today! At least it is to me. When the temp gets down to the low sixties, then that is chilly to this warm weather gal! But the sun is shining and it is beautiful!
Flags are flying on this Veteran's Day and along with others, I was thinking of all the people who are serving us, past and present. My memories go back to WW2. I remember when war was declared on Japan, rationing of sugar, gas and other things; collecting metal for the war effort, including cigarette wrappings "Lucky Strike green Goes to War!". I joined the "Victory Corp" at SPHS where we would gather and knit for the soldiers. Every day we would scan the paper to see of we knew any of the people who had been wounded or worse. Soldiers were stationed at the Vinoy Hotel and Soreno and every day they would march by my Dad's Shell station at 9th Ave and 16th St. on the way to the Armory.
Then came the other wars and the Korean, where Louis was called to serve in the Army for two years. Those were uncertain days , but we survived and are stronger for it. God bless all those who are serving today, including my great niece in the Air Force At Eglin AFB.She is in charge of a plane which has a lady pilot. My niece's name is painted on the fighter jet.
Yesterday, after doing a load of laundry, I took off for a trip to the park and saw the medium sized gopher tortoise taking a stroll along the grass. Quite a few people were out..unusual for that time of day, but it was a beautiful afternoon. God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
And now all glory to God, who is able to
keep you from stumbling, and who will
bring you into his glorious presence
innocent of sin and with great joy. All
glory to him, who alone is God our Savior,
through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Yes, glory
Majesty, and authority belong to Him, in
the beginning, now and forevermore.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and
Love and hugs,
