Good Morning America!

Good Morning America!

Happy Memorial Day!

Today is Memorial Day holiday, a holiday in America to remember the fallen soldiers who have died defending the freedom in America.  These brave men and women defend the freedom not only in America but also in other lands where man’s freedom is threatened.  I watched several videos and listened to some patriotic music this morning.  As I watch the slides on the videos of our brave servicemen/women.  I realized when they sign up to join any armed forces, they are signing off their lives to defend our freedom that we take for granted because we have been living in the country where freedom rings loudly.

My mind starts to think and wander about the families of these brave soldiers who also sacrifice a lot for our freedom.  We tend to forget to say even “thank you” to the soldiers for their services or to the families for letting their loved ones go to the frontlines to defend us so we can sleep soundly at night knowing someone, somewhere is on guard watching over our safety.  We forget there are repercussions of wars.. not only casualty of wars but also the trauma of wars that a lot of our veterans suffer and endure to defend our freedom.  Freedom is not cheap, it costs a lot.  Freedom takes courage, bravery, and sacrifice.  Freedom demands it all so someone can live freely without fear and have peace that you are protected.

Today, I say “THANK YOU” America for the freedom you give me to live in the land of free where I can eat, say, do and have choices without being fearful.  Thank you, America for sharing your goodness with me and most of all, thank you for your unselfish welcome to all who desire freedom.  May I never forget your kindness and goodness towards mankind.  I pray God continue to protect America and put His legions of angels to every corner and city in America to watch and defend you.  May God always keep His eyes on you and bless you with His goodness in Jesus name.

To all servicemen and women,  “THANK YOU” for your service to the great ol’ USA and to us.  Without you and your sacrifice we are not where we are today.  I pray God will hold you in the cup of His hands and protect  you as you defend our beloved country.  May God hide you under His wings as you go and protect what you stand for.. freedom.  God bless you and your families!!!

As The Lord commanded, I bless Israel and pray for peace in Jerusalem and Middle East.

Have a blessed Memorial Day!

 

Love Knows No End :)

Love is the beginning, middle, and end – Anonymous

I went shopping the other day.  While browsing through the store, I found a dish soap that caught my eye.  I was not going to buy it, but I kept going back and looking at the dish.  Finally, I decided to buy the soap dish.  The writing on the dish was what caught my eye.  It said “love is the beginning, middle, and end”.

The dish is sitting on my dresser now and I keep looking at it.  The colors are simple, beige and green.  I am going to use it for jewelry dish.  I have time to ponder what it said in the last couple days.

How true it is about love.  Love doesn’t know any end.  The beginning always start with a warm fuzzy feeling of falling in love, that makes you smile when you think of that person, put butterfly in your stomach at the thought of that person, you can’t eat and sleep, you wake up in the morning with that person in your mind, you can’t stop thinking of him/her all day, you can’t wait to see them.

All along love grows in the middle and you continue in the relationship with love guiding you through thick and thin, bad days and good days as life brings.  While you walk alongside love in the middle, you need to make a conscious effort to give love TLC otherwise love cannot grow as you expect it, or love can wither and die away.  Love can’t grow without being tended and nurtured.  The middle love is the most important part of love.

At the end, love is how you nurture it.  Love will always be there to the end, no matter what the end is.  I always think when love ends, it’s the end of love.  But it’s not the case, when love dies, love is still there in your heart but it’s not the love that you used to feel but it becomes a memory of love.

So, don’t forget 🙂 love is the beginning, middle and end.  Love is always there.  It’s our job to nurture love so it can grow and bear fruit of happiness, joy, peace, kindness, gentleness.  Love is not selfish 🙂 LOVE = GIVE 🙂

Have a blessed love week 🙂
