Independence Day............



Had to post this today even though it's for tomorrow....
The Fourth of July means many things......to some of us, it's fireworks, hot dogs and baseball games and barbecues and even Jello shots. (Hey, nothing wrong with all of that.......)

But to me, it's Flag waving time. It's saying thank you to the service men and women who do everything, RISK everything to give us the chance to have those barbecues.

And I want to thank their families, too. The people who put up with moves every couple of years, who do without so the people of this country can remain free. There's just not enough said about our military and their families. They risk it all. They put it on the line every day. And for every service member out there in harm's way, there's a wife or husband or mom or dad making sure that life keeps ticking back at home while praying that their loved ones will come home safely.

So when you watch those fireworks on the Fourth of July, give a thought to why they're being set off. To remember the 'rockets red glare, the bombs bursting in air'.....and remember to hit your knees and pray for those who are out there, standing tall and strong, making sure that you sleep safely tonight.....................

HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY, AMERICA................................

    I pray for these brave men and women every day. I could not do what they do.

    Happy Fourth! I'm all set - hamburger patties in the fridge, potato salad in the fridge, chips on the counter, beans ready for baking, Velveeta cheese in the fridge just waiting for the Ro-Tel. Yummmm
