It's Veteran's Day

Good morning and welcome to Smiling Sally and all the Blue Monday crew! Today it is easy for all of us to share "blue" with you! It is Veteran's Day!
Maxine can say it with a little humor! But during the recent election we saw how everyone was entitled to their opinion whether the rest of us thought is was right or wrong! We live in a country where we can still speak out on issues and people important to us. So please thank a Vet today!

We are so blessed to live in a free nation! The amount of suffering and loss is responsible for this. There are no words really to come close to thanking Veteran's for all their hard work and sacrifice. I thought this Scripture came close:

Philippians 2:29-30

New American Standard Bible (NASB)
29 Receive him then in the Lord with all joy, and hold men like him in high regard; 30 because he came close to death [a]for the work of Christ, risking his life to complete [b]what was deficient in your service to me.

Many troops are out there today, putting up with so much many of us can not even begin to comprehend. We take so much for granted. Please remember all Veteran's and pray for those serving us all over the world today!

I hope you stop by and visit Sally as well as the rest of our Blue Crew!

Psst ... may I share a secret? Blue is my least-favorite color. All the same, I love what you've written today. It's easy to become choked with emotion, realizing their sacrifices.

PS - and who can resist Maxine! :)
