"From those who pledge to uphold it,
Freedom requires a sacrifice the protected do not know."
~ Unknown

Do your remember ...

In your enjoyment of the holiday weekend,
may you remember the cost to celebrate it.

My days are like a shadow that lengthens,
And I wither away like grass.
But You, O LORD, shall endure forever,
And the remembrance of Your name to all generations.
~ Psalms 102:11-12 (NKJV)


  1. That pretty much puts everything in perspective, doesn't it?

  2. Snady, methinks we tend to whine too much.

  3. We went to the cemetery with the girls this morning. We listened to the preacher and the gun salute and the playing of taps. We bowed our heads and we thanked God for what we have. And then we visited the grave of my father-in-law, who died in 2009 -- a casualty of war. He was a Vietnam veteran and died from leukemia. The federal government acknowledges that his death was caused by excessive exposure to Agent Orange. We are grateful for this land of the free -- because of the brave.

    Thanks for honoring our military, Anne.

    It's good to hear of your meaningful observance. Though some might not think of the police as civilian soldiers, our family lives daily with the ramnifications of my husband's service to protect our community, and attends—all too often—the funeral of police service's casualties. I never hestiate to honor those who rush into danger so that we may live safe.
