In Rememberance

I pledge allegiance to the flag
of the United States of America
and to the Republic
for which it stands,
One nation under God,
with Liberty
and justice
for All.

May God comfort the hearts of those who lost loved
ones on September 11, 2001.

The Lord bless thee, and keep thee:
The Lord make his face shine upon thee,
and be gracious unto thee:
The Lord lift up his countenance upon thee,
and give thee peace.
The Holy Bible, Numbers 6:24-26


  1. It still feels so raw doesn't it?

    I can't get over the sadness I feel today. It been seven years, seven deployments (Josh is a Ranger), and countless lives lost.

    We will always remember.

    Blessings to you.

  2. I love your blog! Thanks for your comment at mine.

    That's a beautiful flag photo. And a good reminder of that sad day which seems far away now but also seems so close. Seven years already!

  3. Thanks for this post. The National Anthem always makes me choke up.

    -Lacy, I didn't know your husband was a Ranger. Husband and I were Marines, and while I never deployed, he did way too often. I was an Air National Guard chemical-warfare chick in 2001, and ended up in a training position. Which I suppose is where I was needed.

  4. Hello Miss Laurie! I'm so glad to "see" your smiling face today. My husband is an over-the-road truck driver and is literally only home 1 or 2 days every three or four weeks. And he has been home nearly 6 days in he past two weeks! Very odd for us. We may even be seeing him again tomorrow for a few hours in Nashville.

    You asked when my birthday is - I will be 42 on the 17th. It'll probably be just my girlies and I for it.

    Well, I hope you have the most fabtabulous Friday, dear Laurie!

    Hugs, Robin

  5. A very nice blog, Ma'am. I clicked over from a comment you made on another site and I'm so glad.

    I wish you luck with the farm. I love the idea though I don't envy you the work. I hope you find great joy.

  6. Thank you for stopping by. I can't tell you what joy it gives me when I encounter gentle folks like your commenters. You are what makes this wonderful country great! What a wonderful Grandmother you will be.

    I hope your camera project blossoms. Before I got my digital camera I had an old Brownie Box camera that was older than you are (I was preteen when it was given to me). That is all I ever had. When I got my first digital about three years ago it was wonderful. The ability to take unlimited pictures, preview them, and edit them, all without cost is perfect for one with a "farm in progress" and Grandkids on the way. I hope you will not miss the chance to preserve these precious memories. If you enjoy this I urge you to become familiar with one of the photo editing programs. They are priceless.

    I think I may have gotten carried away, Sorry. I wish you a wonderful weekend.

  7. Like YOU and your commenters. Sorry. Duh.
