Old Glory and the Red and Yellow...
Today, I am feeling joy, and happiness...
The picture you see above is a wish come true. Projects take time and money...
This is one that has been in the making in my mind since January of '09 when Justin left for Parris Island to be transformed into a Marine for the United States.
This past weekend, Kurt got the flagpole UP!!!
Old Glory and the colors of the USMC now fly in front of our house, our home, for all who pass to see...to be reminded that we live in a great country...STILL.
And that we have men and women fighting for our freedoms to remain, all over the world.
The American Flag is the one Justin bought last Memorial Day and hung at our front door. Now it is more visible and I pray that all who pass it and see it, will feel a swelling of national pride and remember that they are AMERICANS, and pray for God to bless our great nation.
The USMC flag I have had for several months, waiting for the pole to go up. Displaying that flag so that all will know we support our troops and especially our Marines, a group of warriors who are very near and dear to our heart.
God bless America.
God bless our brave and honorable troops.
God bless and give success to our United States Marines.
God give safety to my Justin.
Would you pray today for Billy from Massachusetts, and Justin from Georgia, and Jeff from Delaware, and my Justin from North Carolina, and all defenders of Justice?
May is Military Appreciation Month. Would you stop and thank a soldier or veteran when you see them? Would you fly your flag to show your gratitude for their sacrifice?
This Thursday May 6th is a National Day of Prayer. Would you stop just once during your day to ask God to let justice reign, and oppression to be stopped, and success to come about for the mission in Afghanistan this year?
God bring 'em home.
This Marine family thanks you.
