{ Wednesday's Words - Veterans Day }



Veterans Day, formerly known as Armistice Day, was originally set as a U.S. legal holiday to honor the end of World War I, which officially took place on November 11, 1918.
.
Veterans Day is a special time of year for many Americans who, in some way, have formed a connection with a veteran or who are veterans themselves. It is a day that brings about a great sense of pride in our country, a day when we are especially thankful for the service and sacrifice of those who chose, and those who continue to choose, to wear the cloth of the nation.



My father-in-law served in Germany and my Uncle Robert lost his life in World War II.

Breathing in Grace,

  1. I had no idea it was Veteran's Day. US holidays seem to slip by without us even noticing. Praise the Lord for those who gave all.

  6. A lovely tribute for your loved ones. It's nice to have a special day of remembrance, but those who serve deserve our respect every day (and I know they do!).

  7. My heart is so full of gratitude for those who have served our country! Of course, I am biased because my grandfather, father and husband have all proudly worn a naval uniform. 💙💙
