Veterans Day



A Veteran is someone, who at one point in their life, wrote a blank check payable to the United States of America for an amount up to, and including, their life. That is beyond honor, and there are far too many people in this country who have forgotten that fact (from FB).

This is actually my first time to experience the celebration here. Unfortunately, my husband is currently on training, preparing for another deployment so I am just watching (and learning) a lot of things from the news on how important this day is today. But when we visited the San Diego Veterans Museum & Memorial Center, this somehow make me see how veterans played a big part in World History, and we should be thankful for their brevity and sacrifices they made for US and the rest of the world.

The prayer below is dedicated to all veterans, relatives of veterans, as well as active troops who served, and are still serving. Thank you all!  Thank you hubby! You make us proud. 

A Soldier's Story

Bless the soldiers who sacrifice,
who serve and do us proud.
Protect these home-grown heroes
out there in a foreign field,
on the front lines
where fear and fate intersect.
Place them in Your perpetual care.

Bring them back to us intact,
back to the warmth of home,
the smell of fresh bread,
mom in an apron, flour on her face,
the high school sweetheart, with a promise ring.
Back to the things they are fighting for.
