When you are traveling to our cottage the first thing you will notice when you come to our road is our flag that fly's everyday at the edge of our property. The privilege to fly that flag and to be free to speak to you today has been given to us by the sacrifices of so many men, women and their families through the years. We are stopping today for a Quiet Time to remember all those who have given the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom.
For more years than I want to count, I have been a Military and Firefighter Mom of Three Sons, one Daughter, Two Daughters-In Law, Two Sons -In Law, and Two Grandsons In Law, who have proudly served their country. We personally know the sacrifices that families make on a daily basis to ensure our continued freedom. We are so grateful that we have not had to give that ultimate sacrifice, but we are so proud to be able to hang 3 Blue Stars in our window that represent the 3 active duty family members that are presently serving our country.
From Psalms 91: 1-4
"He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty
I will say to the Lord, My refuge and my fortress My God in whom I trust
For it is He who delivers you from the snare of the trapper and from the deadly pestilence
He will cover you with His pinions, and under His wings you may seek refuge,
His faithfulness is a shield and bulwark"
Peace and Joy
