Last Sunday was Orphan Sunday at church were we sponsor several orphanages in Africa. The week before, hurricane Sandy and Benghazi a few weeks before that has has me thinking about where i live.
I am thankful for God's grace and good fortune of being born here in this country. Finding some peace in knowing that no matter who is president it's all part of a bigger picture. This country, the land of the free and of endless opportunities. The land with amazing people who give money and their able hands to help neighbors in need.
Fall is my favorite season of the year, the weather, colorful leaves, sweaters, boots of course... winter veggies but mostly because it's the time of year when giving thanks to the blessing in life are first on most peoples mind.
Today, I'm most thankful to the men and women in the armed forces. I am so thankful for all of those who fought to give us freedom in the past and for all those who continue the fight to keep us free in a growing world of mayhem.
Happy Veterans day
