Happy Veteran's Day

Today, we salute the courageous men and women who have and are serving our nation. My prayer is that God will continue to be their strength, will be their protector and their shield, and will be their source of courage. So grateful for the sacrifices made by these brave men and women so that we may experience the freedoms we have. Happy Veteran's Day!

I am so thankful for everyone who has served our country, but I am especially thankful
for the brave men in my family who have and are currently serving.  So, thank you to both of my grandfathers, to my dad, to my father in law, to my brother, and to my precious husband.  I am humbled by your service and sacrifices.  Thank you just does not seem adequate. 

My grandfather passed away earlier this year.  He is greatly missed.  I am so proud of the godly man he was and for the service he gave to our country. 

This was my grandfather back when he enlisted...such a handsome man!

My precious husband and brother who are currently deployed for Operation Enduring Freedom.  Thank you Jason, for your commitment to God, to country, and to your family!  You are a hero in mine and the kids eyes...we love you so much!  Jeremy, my little brother, thank you for your service!  I have enjoyed our long conversations and you sharing with me some of your combat experiences...I know those memories must be so difficult. We love our Uncle Jeremy!
