Love this! That scripture was one of the first ones that spoke to my heart as a new Christian back in high school. It is also quoted in the Disney Jungle book movie. Blessings to you Sandra! Love, Rachael
Yes, on this Memoral Day weekend: To all who have served, our many thanks, including my niece, the Marine.

Would love to sit in that quiet place and reflect on so many blessings we have and give thanks for our freedom.
Beautiful! This verse has been on my mind all week as I take time to remember our fallen heroes. Blessings to you.

What a beautiful and appropriate verse as we contemplate the meaning of Memorial Day/Decoration Day…a day to honor those that have given their lives for our freedom and safety.
The uniforms of the US servicemen color my family tree from my 6th great-grandfather General Andrew Pickens of the Revolutionary War to my Uncle Earl, recently passed away, who was a sailor, to my son who has worn the cool blues and whites of the US Navy for almost ten years now.
To those that have gone on to their honors in Heaven to those that still serve, you are forever in our hearts and prayers.
Thank you for such a beautiful post!
