To All Veterans on Veterans Day
Thank you for your service
On Veteran's Day this year, we ask you just take a moment and really just look at your loved ones who served in the armed forces. They helped to bring us freedom. These are just ordinary people who performed extraordinary acts everyday to ensure the freedom we enjoy as families, communities, churches....a nation. Look at those hands in a new appreciation. Many of those hands are fragile now but the person who was once a soldier stills lives inside.
With that thought, here are the hands of a few of our veterans:
- Mamie Tanner, 103 -first woman pilot, WWI Army Air Corp
- Ernest Grebe-1st Lieutenant Army-Vietnam
- Glen Taylor-Sargent in WWII, fought a the Battle of Iwo Jima
- Charles Nelms-Intelligence Officer, Airman First Class Peacetime
- James Glaymeyer-Seamen 1st Class in Navy during the Cuban Missile Crisis
"Honor to the soldier and sailor everywhere, who bravely bears his country’s cause. Honor, also, to the citizen who cares for his brother in the field and serves, as he best can, the same cause."
Happy Veteran's Day
Thank you for your service, dedication, and HEART!

Healing After Loss (Martha Whitmore Hickman)
"She thought of the women at Chicken Little's funeral...What she had regarded since as unbecoming behavior seemed fitting to her now; they were screaming at the neck of God, his giant nape, the vast back-of-the-head that he had turned on them in death. But it seemed to her now it was not a fist-shaking grief they were keening but rather a simple obligation to say something, do something, feel something about the dead. They could not let that heart0-smashing event pass unrecorded, unidentified."
