Salute to Our Veterans — God bless you All

Veterans sacrifice so that those of us who remain behind, may retain our freedom. Too often they are ignored or demeaned when they should be saluted and honored. Veterans Day is set aside by a one time grateful nation to do just that, honor and salute those who have served and sacrificed. While I am no longer sure that this nation is grateful for the sacrifice given, I know that I am. This post is a reminder to honor those who have served and are serving. If you love our Vets please take a moment to pray for them and pray for peace. Perhaps one day soon, it will no longer be needed for some to sacrifice for others.

Veteran’s Day Prayer

Dear Lord,
Today we honor our veterans,
worthy men and women
who gave their best
when they were called upon
to serve and protect their country.
We pray that you will bless them, Lord,
for their unselfish service
in the continual struggle
to preserve our freedoms, our safety,
and our country’s heritage, for all of us.
Bless them abundantly
for the hardships they faced,
for the sacrifices they made
for their many different contributions
to America’s victories
over tyranny and oppression.
We respect them, we thank them,
we honor them, we are proud of them,
and we pray that you will watch over
these special people
and bless them with peace and happiness.
In Jesus’ name we pray; Amen.

ATTENTION all Korean and Vietnam War Veterans! (via Voting American)

The arrogance of the Obama administration and the Democrats is leading to the destruction of this country. They are spending their time and our precious resources to aid our enemies, betray our allies, lower our defenses, and bankrupt our country. We have had enough! The last few years have been enough time for the ignorant of leaders to understand that the people of the country that he purports to lead, do not like the direction that he is going. Most, who cared about the country would be wise enough to change the direction. Barack Obama is neither wise, nor cares about this country. He seems determined to destroy it. Therefore, we the people of this wonderful country, reserve the right to use any means within the Constitution of this Republic, to restore the freedoms and laws that are our rights, not from government, but from God!

ATTENTION all Korean and Vietnam War Veterans! AMERICA‘S  GOT  TROUBLE You fought bravely and sacrificed much to stop the expansion of Communism in South East Asia. How can it be that we find ourselves fighting it once more and this time, In Our Own Country! How is it that we missed all the warning signs and ignored those who tried to warn us of what was happening in Our America? From Paul Revere to President Ronald Reagan there have always been Great Patriots who stood tall to warn us. [yout … Read More

In Memory II

Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends. John 15:13

Every year on Memorial Day we honor our fallen soldiers that gave their life that we might be free! Today more than ever we need reminded that freedom isn’t free. With each day our liberties are being eaten away by a voracious government that seems determined to decide for us every minute detail of our lives.

This country’s Constitution states that our rights are given to us by God, and the Bible tells us that what He gives, no man can take away. They may kill our bodies, but our souls belong to the Creator. We can choose to keep those rights that our men and women died for, or we can give them up. So if we should lose those rights, it is only because we weren’t willing to die for them.

This post is for the men and women who have already proven to God and the world that they are willing to die to keep those rights. If we do nothing else in the next few hours, let us show that honor proudly and let us not be cowed by those in power who have little or no respect for either God, the country, or those who died to protect and save her!
