Thankful for Our Country's Heroes

Today is a day we celebrate those who gave their lives for our country. I have several relatives who were in the military.

A couple years ago, I was blessed with the chance to go to Arlington Cemetery. It is awe-inspiring to see the endless white, and realize all those people paid the price for our freedom. We enjoy prosperity, freedom, and so much more because of the dedication of these brave men and women! I just want to say THANKS!!

Take a minute today to be thankful for the gift of life, freedom, and a wonderful country.

Jesus also gave his life for us, so we could be free, from the burden of our sin, and have the opportunity to live with him for eternity. He paid the price for our freedom.

Love to Journal and Study God's Word - You Need This! GIVEAWAY

Why the 17:18 series?
In Deuteronomy 17, Moses is leaving final instructions concerning the future of Israel. As a prophet of God, Moses foretells of when Israel will place a king over the nation (v. 14). In verse 18, the king is commanded to not simply acquire a copy of the law (the entire book of Deuteronomy) from the scroll publishing house, but to hand write his own copy of the law. Thirty-four hundred years later, educators are discovering that students that physically write out their notes by hand have a much greater retention rate than simply hearing or visually reading the information. Apparently, God knew this to be true of the kings of Israel also. From such understanding came the conception of this series of books.

Spread too Thin - Devotional By Ellen Miller

You know the drill. Somebody asks, “How are you?” and you respond automatically: “Crazy busy!” “I’m exhausted!” “Running too fast.”

And it’s no wonder! Between the breakneck speed of your job, the one million family activities on the calendar, the volunteer luncheon you signed up to host, the growing to-do list on your phone, and the workout you’ve been meaning to get to for weeks—if you ever stopped long enough to think about it, you’d be curled up in the fetal position on the floor.

Life these days. It’s exhausting, isn’t it?
