To America’s Guardians

Hello my fellow American’s, today I’d like to share with you a poem, if I may.

A poem that came to me late during one night that I was having trouble sleeping.

This Poem Is Dedicated To:

(All fallen soldiers, All Veterans, All who Served, & All  who serve in the U.S. Military.) 
To America's Guardians:(Of Freedom)

To those that protect the Red, White and Blue, what would America be without you?

The land of the free because of the brave, their battle cries can be heard from the grave.

Those who are here and those that have passed on, where would we be if they never would have gone?

Some just young boys marching in their first war, others old, and experienced, they had seen it before.

All come from families and homes like me and you, who leave them behind to defend the Red, White and Blue.

They are Mother’s sons, daddies and mommies, sisters and brothers fighting for the freedoms of others they have never known, the least we can do is let our thanks be shown.

To the brave men and women, both young and old, to their families at home who are so bold to share them with you and me so that we can be free.

I cannot imagine how it must feel, to constantly worry your loved one will be killed, while out at battle fighting through and through defending what’s true, the Red, White, and Blue.

God bless you, and your families too, may God bless you, for protecting, the Red, White and Blue.

Though I may not know you, we may have never met, and if you served in times gone by, I most certainly thank you for it.

If you’re just starting out, Godspeed my friend, may God be with you wherever you are led.

You have my support and others too, we thank you for wanting to defend, the Red, White, and Blue.

When the early morning dew so gently falls without a sound, I make my way to a tall poll above the ground, as the sun is just rising, I hoist her up high, there she goes in the wind she can freely fly.

I think of you and the brave ones that did die, in the name of freedom, can’t you hear their battle cries.

They were someone’s son, a smiling face someone’s beloved brother.

But now a void, a broken heart and tears shed from a mother.

Because they gave their life doing what was right in any decent human’s sight.

To leave a void, broken hearts and tears shed from a nation.

The fallen soldiers.

Not forgotten.

To those who did fall and those that did not let our thanks be known for you have given a lot.

Yes this is true, while defending the Red, White and Blue.

All my life I’ve had respect for you, and each time I see her flying so true.

I can’t help but think of the sacrifices from you, while defending the Red, White and Blue.

The colors of freedom, liberty and justice for all, one nation under God we stand proud and we stand tall.

Land of the free and home of the brave.

I hear the battle cries of those in their graves.

To the veterans and the young, active and inactive, new and old, may your story forever be told of you defending the Red, White and Blue.

Thank you.

ALERT – U.S. History

On this day in U.S. History….

J1

I have shared a photo of this flag before and I bring it to your remembrance once again, you see this flag was raised at Prospect Hill at early one cold winter morning at the beginning of this New Year 1776, a year of Revolution!

The Grand Union Flag, A flag of great significance that is hardly recognized today as a part of American History, who knows maybe it is, but most people I show it to have no idea that this flag has anything to do with America and they become very offended to see either of the flags of the two countries (The U.K. & The U.S.) defaced in such a way with the Union Jack in place of our Stars.

However the fact of the matter is, this flag is indeed the flag our Founding Fathers used at the beginning of this great nation, it is the flag of the early Revolution, it is the flag that was flown on July 4th 1776 (Independence Day) it is a magnificent historical piece that I am proud to own and fly on this very historical day in U.S. History.

If you would like to own a Grand Union Flag of your own you can do so by clicking the picture below:

Thank you for reading, once again Happy New Year & God bless!

Happy New Year! 2015

WOW, 2015 already, it just amazes me!

DW 2015

(Only Whovians will understand the photo) 

Doesn’t it you? Time, time is something that is here, yet it isn’t, one minute something is one way and the next minute things are completely different.

It always amazes me how time changes things, the way it shapes people’s lives, how it pushes us to move on, because the reality is when one life ends, life itself keeps on going.

I have seen many things happen this past year of 2014 starting early on in February when my grandpa had his first heart attack of the year, to May 17th the day my mom announced she was taking back the man my grandparents worked so hard to help her get away from.

To meeting my friends across the seas, In the U.K. and Australia from across the states to Wisconsin, California, Indiana, and the list could probably go on, even in Canada, so many people that I was able to meet and become friends with through the internet this year that certainly has made a good impact in my life as they are all remarkable and unique.

In October I met (the now new Governor of Texas) AG Greg Abbott who was out campaigning  for Governor at the time at a meet and greet in Tyler Texas! That’s not all, I also was able to meet the one and only Chuck Norris! Now, Chuck Norris is someone that I have always admired since I was a little kid, being able to meet him in person was absolutely amazing.

Yes, looking back I now realize that there have been both good and bad events of chaos in this year especially when you get down to the nitty gritty, but isn’t that the way all years are? Yet you don’t necessarily ever know what a year may bring, you can never in a million years guess that out of heartache God will bring bliss and outright miracles into your life.

Miracles:

Yes, I said MIRACLES, I am a strong believer in “Miracles” because I have seen many of them placed upon mine and my family life throughout the years, if it wasn’t for God’s grace his sheer blessings and outright miracles in our life I don’t know where we would be today, of course it did take much action on our part, we had to be faithful, we had to believe, we had to stand still and let God move.

And when you put your life into God’s hands, what better place is there for it to be? When you rest assured in the assurance of his sufficient grace, that is when you will be able to conquer all that is thrown your way, I am ready for 2015, I know it will be a year that will most likely be filled with much adventure, trials, heartache, joy, peace, love,  forgiveness, and miracles.

They are all around us, Miracles, that is, both big and small, we just have to be willing to look for them.

When we can do that, THAT is when we will begin to see the bigger picture, I am still a very strong believer that everything happens for a reason and for a purpose, a good reason and a good purpose, sometimes it may become hard to understand what that purpose and reason really is and as matter of fact, we may never actually know in this life time, but all we can do is trust God that in the end it’ll all work out.

Embrace 2015!

Welcome this year with open arms my friends, be not afraid, be bold, be courageous, share the truth in love with BOLDNESS. It CAN be done, I have seen it, I have done it.

Make this a year that counts for something, quit loving people into hell and actually love them with a real love, they may not always listen, they may not always agree with you but that’s fine it’s not about what they think it’s about what YOU do.

 

It is our individual choices the way WE live OUR lives that MAKE the difference.  – Glenn Beck

 

Again, I don’t know if that actually is a GB quote but that’s where I heard it from, and it’s true my friends, we are responsible and accountable to God for our own actions, we must share the gospel in truth with love and BOLDNESS.

My aim for this year is to do this myself and encourage others to do this as well, to share:

 TRUTH (IN) – LOVE (WITH) – BOLDNESS.

  As I have said many, many, MANY times it CAN be done, WE just have to DO it.

 HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE! 

 Shalom –
