I received this email and just have to share it. God bless our TROOPS!
I HOPE THERE ISN'T ANYONE ON MY E-MAIL LIST THAT WON'T ....... KEEP THIS GOING.
Let' s get this started ,NOW! So it will be out there on the fourth!
I PLEDGE ALLEGIANCE TO THE FLAG, OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA , AND TO THE REPUBLIC, FOR WHICH IT STANDS, ONE NATION UNDER GOD, INDIVISIBLE, WITH LIBERTY AND JUSTICE FOR ALL! KEEP IT LIT!!KEEP IT LIT! For all of our other military personnel, where ever they may be. Please Support all of the troops defending our Country. And God Bless our Military who are protecting our Country for our Freedom. Thanks to them, and their sacrifices, we can celebrate the 4th of July.
We must never forget who gets the credit for the freedoms we have, of which we should be eternally grateful. I watched the flag pass by one day. It fluttered in the breeze. A young Marine saluted it, And then he stood at ease.
I looked at him in uniform; so young, so tall, so proud. With hair cut square and eyes alert, he'd stand out in any crowd. I thought how many men like him had fallen through the years. How many died on foreign soil; how many mothers' tears? How many pilots' planes shot down? How many died at sea? How many foxholes were soldiers' graves?
NO, FREEDOM ISN'T FREE !
I heard the sound of Taps one night, when everything was still. I listened to the bugler play And felt a sudden chill.
I wondered just how many times That Taps had meant 'Amen.' When a flag had draped a coffin of a brother or a friend. I thought of all the children, of the mothers and the wives, of fathers, sons and husbands With interrupted lives.
I thought about a graveyard At the bottom of the sea. Of unmarked graves in Arlington .
NO FREEDOM ISN'T FREE
Enjoy Your Freedom and God Bless Our Troops.
When you receive this, please stop for a moment and say a prayer for our servicemen. Of all the gifts you could give a U.S. Soldier, prayer is the very best one.
I have been married to my wonderful husband for 40 years. We have 2 girls and 6 grandkids and 3 extended grandkids (2 nieces and 1 nephew). I love spending time with my family, sewing, woodcrafting, cooking, gardening and anything crafty. I have crafted for over 30 years doing everything from making dolls. macrame to cross stitching and have now developed a special love for primitive crafts. I enjoy making these crafts and thinking how it must have been in prairie days without all the luxuries that we have. So sit back and relax and enjoy my blog.
First, I would like to say that I am computer illiterate and without the help of a few good friends, I would not have been able to have this blog. I would like to thank Sage of Sagewood Farms for the many hours she spent teaching me how to open a blog. I would also like to thank Brenda from Hattie's Workshop for the awesome banner that she made me. I am grateful to Judy of Primfolks by Judy, Susan from Threadbare Primitives and Donna from Moonchild's Primitives for giving me permission to use the products that I have made from their patterns to display in my banner. And lastly, I would like to thank all my friends from Prim Sister's Talk Radio Gathering Room who have had the patience to teach me what all the computer language means and for giving me ideas on primitive creating. I have found that there are so many people in the primitive community that are willing to help beginners get started and for that I am very grateful. Thanks everone!
