On the phone talking with my Mom, this morning, door bell rings, might not be unusual for you, but it is for me especially when our gate is locked. I glanced out the window and saw a young man in uniform. I greet him he explains his situation, he had to land his helicopter in the pasture. I asked how I might help, he wanted to know if they could land another helicopter and bring a jeep for repair work. I said for them to do whatever they needed to get it fixed, I also asked if I could take some photos!He invited me to go see the helicopter and take photos.
I found Rain inspecting the helicopter, and was so surprised because she is so skittish, she just took everything in stride.
This was such a thrill for me, I got to meet some wonderful young men, and to thank them for their service to our country, how my DH and I pray for all of our military men and women each day,they all were so thankful,polite and wanting to make sure they weren't doing any harm to the pasture.
I've never known Rain to be so nosy, (I guess she is like her owners,grin) she got even closer!
It took a couple of hours for the helicopter to be repaired and then....
Have you thanked or hugged a military person lately?
A personal note*
I have so much respect for our men and women and their families who sacrifice so much so that I can continue to enjoy the freedoms, that I now have. Sad to say that so much of our blessings and freedoms are leaving due to wrong decisions being made by our leaders. I urge everyone to please continue to pray for our nation, our military personal, and our leaders!!
This morning in my devotion, Isaiah 6~ I was reading of how Isaiah went to the temple when his friend King Uzziah had died, while there he saw the majestic glory of God manifested in a powerful way. He repented, his guilt was taken away, his sin atoned, and was given a new commission, He received a fresh vision.
