gratituesday - firefighters

this summer we, as a family, have decided to adopt the fire station that's closest to our home.  i know that the boundaries are all weird and perhaps they wouldn't be the firemen that would come to our house if i fire were to happen... but to make it easy for us, we adopted them! 
each week we are to bring them a gift of thanks.  well, summer started now three weeks ago and we haven't brought anything.  so TODAY we are bringing them 1.) lots of colored pictures from us. 2.) some kool-aid. and 3.) fresh baked cookies.
today i'd like to remind everyone to take a look into how much these men do for us and that we all need to be thankful that they risk their lives for our protection or safety.  thank you firemen!  thank you fire fighters!  thank you thank you thank you!
Try to remember, "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."
