Take a moment and remember those who have not returned home or has been wounded.

What Is A Veteran?

A ‘Veteran‘ — whether active duty, discharged, retired, or reserve — is someone who, at one point in his life, wrote a blank check made payable to “The United States of America,” for an amount of “up to, and including his life.”

That is honor, and there are way too many people in this country today, who no longer understand that fact.

Here are a few pictures. My father, my husband and myself are Air Force Veterans and my Step-son is an Army Veteran.

Day Three: “Water” — Image Orientation

Day Three: “Water” — Image Orientation

In the Caribbean. The water is beautiful.

We all have stories about water: how it has saved or defeated us. How it reminds us of family vacations, outdoor adventures, or the hot summers of our childhood. How it symbolizes a place we’ve left behind, or one we dream of visiting.

How will you interpret today’s theme?

Today’s Tip: Ever wonder whether a photograph will work better horizontally or vertically? After you snap your picture, rotate your camera and take a shot from the other orientation — horizontally if you first took the picture vertically, and vice versa. Which way works better?

Photo Challenge of the Week – State of Mind

WordPress Photo Challenge: State of Mind

My life is rushing by.

life rushing bye

Sometimes this is very hard to do. I have to remember to stop and take a breath.

Don’t cut the plant,
Just let it grow.
Don’t rush through life,
Go nice and slow.

Don’t cut the blossom,
Just inhale it’s soul,
What grows before you,
Is God’s true gold.

Don’t rush inside,
When it starts to pour.
Just walk through the rain,
As you’ve, done before.

Rise early one day,
And behold the dawn,
And a giant red orb,
Will stifle your yawn.

Wonder at the moon,
High in the night sky.
And the stars all around,
So incredibly high.

Do you remember,
When you were so young,
And a world full of wonder,
Was there to be won.

Some look but don’t see,
And who holds the key?
To the wonders the lord made,
For you and for me.

Some hear, but don’t listen,
They’re too busy by far.
To hear rustling of leaves,
Or see twinkling of stars.

To hear birds in the trees,
Oh such beautiful songs.
To see clouds floating by,
When the wind is so strong.

Don’t rush through your life,
Take a deep breath and then.
Behold all the marvels,
God created for men.

Smell of the flowers,
Along lifes highway.
And your life will be better,
By far in this way.
