LOL

You were right the first time. LOL

It was the November Opener but I couldn’t stay awake until November so I posted a little early.

GOD BLESS AND PROTECT OUR TROOPS!



Amazing Grace

by John Newton


Amazing grace! How sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me!
I once was lost, but now am found;
Was blind, but now I see.
.
’Twas grace that taught my heart to fear, .
And grace my fears relieved;
How precious did that grace appear
The hour I first believed!
.
Through many dangers, toils and snares,
I have already come;
’Tis grace hath brought me safe thus far,
And grace will lead me home.
.
The Lord has promised good to me,
His Word my hope secures;
He will my Shield and Portion be,
As long as life endures.
.
Yea, when this flesh and heart shall fail,
And mortal life shall cease,
I shall possess, within the veil,
A life of joy and peace.
.
The earth shall soon dissolve like snow,
The sun forbear to shine;
But God, Who called me here below,
Will be forever mine.
.
When we’ve been there ten thousand years,
Bright shining as the sun,
We’ve no less days to sing God’s praise
Than when we’d first begun.

GOD BLESS AND PROTECT OUR TROOPS!

Dear God, who suffered
torment, agony and death upon the Cross
to free our souls from the chains of iniquity;
protect and defend our troops. Guide them in
the performance of their duties. Strengthen
them to endure hardship, danger and depri-
vation in Your service. Let their efforts free
the people of Iraq and Afghanistan from the
chains of terror and slavery, foster a lasting
peace in the region, and bring all to a greater
share in Your Mercy.
Amen.

THE NAVY HYMN

Eternal Father, Strong to Save



The Marine Corps Verse:

Eternal Father, grant we pray
To all Marines both night and day,
The Courage, Honor, Strength and Skill
Their Land to serve, Thy Law Fulfill.
Be Thou the Shield forevermore
From every peril to the Corps!

This is the day which the LORD hath made;
we will rejoice and be glad in it.
Psalms 118:24(KJV)


Have a Blessed Lord’s Day!

Daddy's Boots

By C J Heck

Daddy left his boots for me
and here I have to stay.
My daddy is a soldier,
I’m in charge while he’s away.

In Daddy’s boots I can pretend
that now I am the man
who does the things that Daddy does
as only Daddy can.

I help with little brother,
I help with folding clothes,
I help to set the table,
and I hope Daddy knows

that every day I wear his boots
so I’ll feel close to him
and I try to keep Mom happy
till he comes home again.

I know that he’s protecting us,
that’s what soldiers do,
but his boots are way too big for me
and my job, being him, is too.

Mom, when is Daddy coming home?
I miss him all the time.
She said Daddy would be proud of me
and his boots ... fit me just fine.

And the bright flowers in this graphic will surely perk anyone up. Thanks, Meg...

Been a very busy day. Hurried to church because I fooled around too long before getting ready....but made it on time! Then nothing would satisfy me today except potato soup and cornbread so I rushed into that when I came home. Straightened up my mess after cooking and eating and got a big long snoozzzzz~~~

Enjoyed a restful day. And hope you did.
