November 11 is Veterans Day in the United States. It’s a federal holiday where we honor those who have dedicated their lives to American freedom. Veterans Day is the anniversary of the signing of the World War I armistice, which ended the hostilities between the United States and other Allied nations with Germany in 1918. Unlike Memorial Day, which honors those who died in service, Veterans Day is a day set aside for honoring all veterans, living and dead. Veterans Day was started by President Woodrow Wilson in 1918 but it wasn’t adopted by Congress until 1926. Veterans Day was originally known as Armistice Day before becoming Veterans Day in 1954. Celebrate the day with Bible scripture and verses.

โ€œIn the beginning of a change, the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot.โ€

~ย Mark Twain

โ€œCourage is almost a contradiction in terms.ย  It means a strong desire to live taking the form of readiness to die.โ€

Just a girl lost in some ways, found in others. Writing my thoughts, ideas, dreams, realities, pieces of me... not all pretty~ definitely real. I'm a mother with faith in God's divine providence that my mistakes and selfishness, my immaturity and past are all part of a journey. That all is never what it seems. That good will always claim victory and there is a plan beyond what human eyes and our fallen natures can see. My three children are my miracles, my life, my blessing and they inspire me to be a better woman and human being. I hope that you and I share and learn from each other in the beauty and reality of life on this ever evolving journey. xo ~ This is a place without masks~ without broken glass paths ~ This is a place to be free To be me~Just a girl lost XxX
