Women Who Served in Vietnam

Please take a few moments and read this article. I was only 6 years old when my father went to Vietnam. Thankfully and grateful that he came home in June 1968. What I didnt know was the large contingent of women who also served in Vietnam. This article describes the role, service, and heroism they played during this war where 58.000 men were killed and countless others came home maimed physically, and still today deal with the emotional scars.

Veteran’s Day…2019

american flag vets dayVeterans Day is a time for us to take a moment to pay our respects to those who have served. For one day, we stand united in respect for our veterans.

This holiday started as a day to reflect upon the heroism of those who died in our country’s service and was originally called Armistice Day. It fell on Nov. 11 because that is the anniversary of the signing of the Armistice that ended World War I. However, in 1954, the holiday was changed to “Veterans Day” in order to account for all veterans in all wars.

We celebrate and honor our Veterans for their patriotism, love of country and willingness to serve and sacrifice for the common good.

God bless each and every one of them and their families today and always.

The Power of Prayer

“The fervent prayers of a righteous man availeth much” (James 5:16). I am a firm believer in the power of prayer. That being said, I invite you today to share your prayer concerns and requests with me, no matter large or small, and I will pray for you. If you’re not comfortable with intimate/personal details, a key word in the comments below (marriage, job, health, children, etc.) will be fine.

Your part in this process? If you see someone else’s prayer request in the comments, pray for them also. When your prayer is answered, I want to know, so we can celebrate together.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Blessings today and always,

“Bethie”

All Saint’s Day 2019

All Saints Day, also known as All Hallows’ Day, or Hallowmas, is a Christian celebration in honor of all the saints from Christian history. In Western Christianity, it is observed on November 1st by the Roman Catholic Church, the Methodist Church, the Lutheran Church, and other Protestant denominations. The Eastern Orthodox Church and associated Eastern Catholic churches observe All Saints Day on the first Sunday following Pentecost.

The Christian festival of All Saints Day comes from a conviction that there is a spiritual connection between those in Heaven and on Earth. In Catholic tradition, the holiday honors all those who have passed on to the Kingdom of Heaven. It is a national holiday in numerous historically Catholic countries. In Methodist tradition, All Saints Day relates to giving God earnest gratitude for the lives and deaths of his saints, remembering those who were well-known and not. Additionally, individuals throughout Christian history are celebrated, such as Peter the Apostle and Charles Wesley, as well as people who have personally guided one to faith in Jesus, such as one’s relative or friend.
Who are you honoring, celebrating, and remembering today? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments.
Blessings…..”Bethie”
