I'm so glad you've stopped by my blog! I am a Women's Minister and a former Pastor's Wife. I love finding God in my regular-everyday-stuff. I struggle with keeping up with the laundry, I love blogging, and my kids are my first line of ministry. I am recently widowed. So God and I are on a brand new journey as I try to find peace and understanding. Please grab a cup of coffee and let's get to know one another as we journey on our faith walk together.

Thank you...

Last night I enjoyed talking to my parents about both of their Dads - my granddads - about their service to our country in World War II.  My Mom's Dad was in Patton's army and his battalion rescued my Dad's Dad from a prison camp.  What a really cool story for our family!

Today I wanted to take a moment to honor all the soldiers - those who have gone on to heaven and those who are still fighting for our freedom every day.

I read about a man who faithfully followed his leader today in my One Year Bible... as I read it, I thought about how this was probably the heart of every fallen soldier.

2 Samuel 15:21 (ESV)
But Ittai answered the king, 
"As the Lord lives, wherever my lord the king shall be, 
whether for death or for life, there also will your servant be."

What a statement!  On this day, the Sunday before Memorial Day - John would always sing this song in church as he honored all branches of the military.

Today - take time to thank a soldier!
