yesterday was tuesday --gratituesday--

after i posted last night's post, i remembered that it was tuesday so i could have posted a gratituesday post!  so, i'll do a tardy one today. 
yesterday was also flag day. 

so my gratefulness will center around the flag that flies the highest where i live.
-the stars and stripes, red, white and blue, old glory, or (if you prefer), the star spangled banner.-
i'm thankful for what our flag stands for.  i'm thankful to live in the united states of america.  i'm thankful for all the rights and responsibilities we have as united states citizens.  i'm also thankful for all the benefits we receive as united states citizens. 

in this post, i'd also like to take the opportunity to thank our soldiers for doing what they do, even if they don't have much say about it.  they signed up and they're following through.  thanks soldiers.  there is one soldier, specifically, that i'd like to mention in urgency for prayer.  his name is bowe and he's a soldier that i personally know.  he's been taken captive by the enemy and he and his family covet prayers.  please remember to pray for God's will for and in him and his family. 

Try to remember, "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."
