That lone daisy signifies persistence and courage - for want of a better vocabulary today.

This lone daisy just makes me feel love:

Daisies are a favorite of mine because they're bright and clean and cheerful looking.

It's 76º and dry as a desert today. A little breeze and a lot of sun makes it exquisitely delicious.

Took a nap in the sun earlier. I felt luxurious with the gentle breeze.

GOD BLESS AND PROTECT OUR TROOPS!


Amazing Grace

by John Newton


Amazing grace! How sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me!
I once was lost, but now am found;
Was blind, but now I see.
.
’Twas grace that taught my heart to fear, .
And grace my fears relieved;
How precious did that grace appear
The hour I first believed!
.
Through many dangers, toils and snares,
I have already come;
’Tis grace hath brought me safe thus far,
And grace will lead me home.
.
The Lord has promised good to me,
His Word my hope secures;
He will my Shield and Portion be,
As long as life endures.
.
Yea, when this flesh and heart shall fail,
And mortal life shall cease,
I shall possess, within the veil,
A life of joy and peace.
.
The earth shall soon dissolve like snow,
The sun forbear to shine;
But God, Who called me here below,
Will be forever mine.
.
When we’ve been there ten thousand years,
Bright shining as the sun,
We’ve no less days to sing God’s praise
Than when we’d first begun.



Lamh Foistenach Abu!

GOD BLESS AND PROTECT OUR TROOPS!

Dear God, who suffered
torment, agony and death upon the Cross
to free our souls from the chains of iniquity;
protect and defend our troops.
Guide them in the performance of
their Duties.
Strengthen them to endure hardship,
danger, and deprivation in
Your service.
Let their efforts free the people
of Iraq from the chains of terror
and slavery, foster a lasting peace
in the region, and bring all to a
greater share in Your mercy.
Amen.

THE NAVY HYMN

Eternal Father, Strong to Save



The Marine Corps Verse:

Eternal Father, grant we pray
To all Marines both night and day,
The Courage, Honor, Strength and Skill
Their Land to serve, Thy Law Fulfill.
Be Thou the Shield forevermore
From every peril to the Corps!

This is the day which the LORD hath made;
we will rejoice and be glad in it.
Psalms 118:24(KJV)


Have a Blessed Lord’s Day!

Open Door Policy

Tad Robinson~No More Night



To A Beautiful Person

If God had a refrigerator,
your picture would be on it.
If He had a wallet,
your photo would be in it.
He sends you flowers every spring.
He sends you a sunrise every morning.
Whenever you want to talk, He listens.
He can live anywhere in the universe,
but He chose your heart.
Face it friend, He is crazy about you!

God didn't promise days without pain,
laughter without sorrow,
sun without rain;
but He did promise strength for the day,
comfort for the tears,
and light for the way.

Yesterday when we were out and about window-shopping for a house, we happened to drive past a house with "Welcome Home, Daddy" signs a few short blocks from our house.

Turns out, KOVR13 was also there and captured a guaranteed misty-eye moment as you watch and read the story of the US Navy 2/c Petty Officer's return from Iraq. Click the link below then click the video link beside the story..

Found this in my scripture journal, wanted to share it with all the ladies at Amy’s Place,,,

Proverbs 31:30-31
“Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain, but a woman that feareth The Lord, she shall be praised. Give her of the fruit of her hands, and let her own works praise her in The Gates.”

Those verses really moved me today. Hadn’t read it in a while.

Yes we ARE a Christian nation, Praise The Lord!

I’m sorry; I don’t. I fell in love with it when I saw it, though. If you find out...let me know! I tried googling it, but didn’t find the right one under “stairway to heaven” or “doorway to heaven”.
