It feels wrong to say, “Happy Veteran’s Day.” These are men and women who have often seen combat. Calling this day “happy” just has a weird flavor to it, to me. I am thankful for Veteran’s Day, for the chance to express my gratitude to the people who have served in our military. I want to honor them, to show respect and admiration.
So I say
Have a meaningful
For all you have done.
My friend Angie likes to post music sometimes on her blog, “Family Life is More.” Some time ago, we were talking about favorite songs, and I mentioned that some of the hymns I grew up with could move me to tears, and she asked if there was anything new that could do that. There really weren’t any, as most of the songs at our church were still pretty new to me and none had found that “spot” in my heart yet.
Well, there’s one song that now has. My husband started playing it one day and it just overwhelmed me with it’s power.
Then, I caught this video that shows a bunch of our Marines singing it at a worship service, and you know how I love our Marines! (and Air Force, Navy, Army, and Coast Guard, too! *salute!*) Oohrah!
There is so much win in this for me! I hope you find it to be that way for you, too. Enjoy!

Lord knows I love our military! I used to love going to the annual air show that was near where I used to live. The fighter jets are like the rock stars of the military, in my opinion.
Here’s just a taste, to tease you. There’s an update to the yearly “latest military tech” page. Here’s the link so you can go see them all. 🙂
