Memorial Day: A Salute!

We Salute Our Veterans This Memorial Day

We salute every soldier whoo’s
served this great nation.
And offer a heart of thanks
and appreciation!

We salute each memeber
of our armed forces.
And are thankful for their
efforts and resources!

We salute the many who
protect our boarders too.
We’d be in trouble…
If not for people like YOU!

We salute every son and
daughter lost in a war.
YOU are what serving this
country is meant for!

We salute the officers who’ve
guided our women and men.
Our prayers are with you!
And our love from within!

We salute our veterans!
Wherever they may be!Those who served on
land, air and sea!

Offering prayer to the
Lord is our belief…
That he will guide our
Commander-in-Chief!

As we observe Memorial Day this year…
Let’s offer our soldiers
love, hope and cheer!

May God bless them in
all they endeavor
And his peace be with them
today and forever!!

Meditation Monday – A Prayer of Thanks

Good morning!

I pray all is well and that you had a lovely weekend. This morning, I wanted to reflect and say thanks to the Lord for all that He has done for us. Our lives are not the easiest and it can get discouraging at times. When we learn to say ‘Thank You’, even in out darkest hour, we can then find comfort in the Lord’s presence and find hope to make it through. Let this be a reminder to how great our Lord is.

Meditation Monday – Poem and Emergency Numbers

Here is something that will help you through the day. I know not everyone got the day off today.

This Too Shall Pass

If I can endure for this minute
Whatever is happening to me,
No matter how heavy my heart is
Or how dark the moment may be-
If I can remain calm and quiet
With all the world crashing about me,
Secure in the knowledge God loves me
When everyone else seems to doubt me-
If I can but keep on believing
What I know in my heart to be true,
That darkness will fade with the morning
And that this will pass away, too-
Then nothing in life can defeat me
For as long as this knowledge remains
I can suffer whatever is happening
For I know God will break all of the chains
That are binding me tight in the darkness
And trying to fill me with fear-
For there is no night without dawning
And I know that my morning is near.

Helen Steiner Rice

Meditation Monday – A Poem

This morning when I was looking for inspirational quotes to share with you, I ran into this poem instead. Despite our problems, issues, grievances and hardships we need to remember God is always there

Sometimes we so easily forget,
How unpredictable our lives may be,
We make plans for our tomorrows and our futures,
Not realizing they could change instantly,

Then one day, you wake up, and it happens,
Something occurs that’s not at all like you’ve planned,
Your life has now taken a new direction,
And it may be difficult for you to understand.

God never promised that we’d never have struggles,
That there would always be sunshine and not rain,
But He said He’d never leave nor forsake us,
And with His presence we will forever be sustained.

When God takes us from the height of the mountain,
And then places us in the valley of despair,
It’s here we can learn total dependence,
Upon the One who will always be there.

Oftentimes it’s only through the midst of the trials,
We see God works in ways we’d never have dreamed,
He accomplishes so much beyond our understanding,
And now things may not be at all what they’d seemed.

We may not know why God allowed such a hardship,
We must learn to trust in the One who knows best,
For our future is seen by Him only,
And in Him we can confidently rest.

So when the unexpected may arise in our lifetime,
And the way God is leading seems dim,
May we face it not ONE DAY at a time,
But instead, MOMENT BY MOMENT with Him.

– Unknown

God Bless!
