Some 20 year olds worth knowing!

23 Jul
A friend posted this on her FB page but she got it from a former Marine and from there we do not know who the author of this awesome post is but it is so true. More people care about People Magazine or Entertainment Tonight then they do our country. They know more who the Bachelor or Bacherette of the season is but cannot tell you one person running for congress or even who the Vice President is. Every time I turn the TV on they are talking about Mel Gibson and Lindsy Lohan. Both deserve to go to jail. They screwed up. Do I really have to hear about them every single night when our brave men and women are putting their lives on the line so we can have freedom and protection. Come on America this has got to stop.
“can’t believe the news coverage given to a spoiled 20-year old. Here are a few 20 year-olds worth knowing: Justin Allen 23, Brett Linley 29, Matthew Weikert 29, Justus Bartett 27, Dave Santos 21, Chase Stanley 21,Jesse Reed 26, Matthew Johnson 21, Zachary Fisher 24, Brandon King 23, ..Christopher Goeke 23, & Sheldon Tate 27. These 20-somethings gave
their lives for you this week.”

These are my heroes and these are people worth knowing! Thank you to all of you who serve and have served. Thank you to our military families as well. You also sacrifice so much for our country!

I  stop and give thanks to God for our wonderful country! I also want to thank all of those who have in the past or who are currently serving in our military. You are the reason we celebrate freedom today.

Thank you for you courageous sacrifice and service to our great country!

I saw this story on the news about Neda and my heart broke for her and all the people of Iran. Click here to read the story of Neda. I found this story on Fox News.

Army Wives

8 Jun

I watched the third season opener of Army Wives and I loved it. As usual it was fantastic. I cried during the scenes with Claudia Joy and her husband Michael especially when he had to leave.

I do not like Catherine Bell’s character right now and I think she got what she deserved but we’ll see how this unfolds. If Frank dies, I don’t see how they could keep her character on especially if she was fired from her job due to an affair. Looking forward to the rest of the season. I love Pamela she is my favorite!

Happy Memorial Day

22 May

Thank you to all the men and women that serve our great country. We honor you today!

We are headed up to the moutains to stay in a cabin in the woods with handsome hubby’s parents. I pray it will be enjoyable. Peanut is going into her 23rd day with fever and she has been throwing the awful tantrums due to all the meds she is on. A part of me is not looking forward to this and the other part is .

Enjoy your long weekend and may you have safety in your travels!

Captain Richard Phillips

10 Apr

Please keep this Captain in prayer since he heroically put himself in harms way to save his crew. I pray they can get him out of there. He did try to escape but was recaptured. The pirates said if they do not get $2 million they will consider killing him. Lord Jesus we ask that you protect this man and all the hostages from other ships and free them safely and bring these pirates to justice.

Ann Dunwoody

14 Nov

Ann Dunwoody is the first female four star general ever in the history of the USA. Congratulations General Dunwoody for your achievement and breaking that glass ceiling. What a wonderful accomplishment! I pray more women can follow in your footsteps. It was moving to see her dad at her ceremony. What a lovely day it must have been for her!

Thank you for your service and honor to our country!
