… a day late. “Thank you” seems inadequate to express our gratefulness to those who served our country. Some gave their lives for our freedom. May we never forget that. Others made huge sacrifices. May we never forget that. Ultimately, may we never take for granted the sacrifice our Lord and Savior made for us. May we neverforget that.
Thank you, Veterans, for your service to us and our country.
“Only fear the LORD, and serve him in truth with all your heart: for consider how great things he hath done for you.” (1 Samuel 12:24)
We’ll wait for another post to show the real pictures. These are the “behind the scenes” mainly taken from my old camera, except for one.
“But I am like a green olive tree in the house of God: I trust in the mercy of God for ever and ever. I will praise thee for ever, because thou hast done it: and I will wait on thy name; for it is good before thy saints.” Psalms 52:8-9
This yearâ€™s Neighborhood Ladies’ Brunch was a delight! We always enjoy fellowshipping with our wonderful neighbors, and this was no exception. We were grateful to the ladies who took the time to come to the brunch! Many of them also brought food for which we were very thankful too!
Here is our menu:
Potato and Ham Breakfast Casserole (recipe coming later)
Gooey Pumpkin Chocolate Muffins
Peanut Butter Surprise Brownies
Mom was a wonderful hostess, and she came up with this years’ round-table discussion. She asked everyone to share a highlight of the past year, and if they wanted to, they could tell about their saddest time.
We were blessed as we heard about each of our friends’ triumphs and some hardships. There was much laughing, and there were also a few tears shed as the ladies shared. It was a neat time, and Dad said he could tell from all the laughter he heard from his office upstairs that we were surely enjoying each otherâ€™s company!
After the brunch, it was time to hurry. Like Sarah already mentioned, we will wait for another post to tell you what we were hurrying to do!
Serving Jesus, Anna
