In GOD We Trust Choose To Lose
"If you are going to win any battle you have to do one thing. You have to make the mind run the body. Never let the body let the body tell the mind what to do. The body will always give up. It is always tired in the morning, noon and night. But the body is never tired if the mind is not tired."
-General George S Patton, U.S.Army, 1912 Olympian

I will be sending a prayer of gratitude. No other plans as we are traveling.

Eileen

Slow & steady makes a winner of us. Even if we hit pitfalls, get up. Know that a new day is right around the corner.
Try to be all that you can be. Work at it a day at a time.

"Be not afraid of going slow; be afraid if standing still" (Chinese Proverb)

With God all things are possible.

If you have the courage to begin, you have the courage to succeed.

Thanking my DH for the 9 years he served in the Navy stationed with the Marines as a Corpsman during the Viet Nam War... poor guy he has to work on Veteran's Day emoticon emoticon Carolyn and all the Vets and their families for your selfless acts of courage so we can enjoy all the freedom afforded us as a result of your service. God Bless YOU emoticon

Exercise 1st... Spark 2nd. Works for me!

Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.

Instead of giving myself reasons why I can't I give myself reasons why I can.

Tired of starting over? Stop giving up!!

NEVER QUIT =]

I am thanking Father God for the loyal and patriotic people who have sacrificed so much for believing in freedom, truth and liberty for all and having love rule a person's heart.

We just had a big celebration at my son's elementary school. It was wonderful. The speaker was from the Coast Guard. That was nice, since they get left out sometimes. The children sang the songs of all five of our military branches. They have been having this Veteran's Day celebration for the past six years. It always brings tears to everyone's eyes. One other thing which was special and nice, the speaker asked that we also thank the families of our veterans. He said they are the biggest supporters of our veterans, along with having to either move around with the veterans or stay at home and wait for them to come home. emoticon emoticon

Wikipedia states that, "Armistice Day (which overlaps with Remembrance Day and Veterans Day) is celebrated on the day of every year on 11 November to commemorate the armistice signed between the Allies of World War I and Germany at Compiègne, France, for the cessation of hostilities on the Western Front of World War I, which took effect at eleven o'clock in the morning—the "eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month" of 1918."

Wikipedia also says that, "After World War II, the name of the holiday was changed to Veterans Day in the United States and to Remembrance Day in the countries of the British Commonwealth of Nations. Armistice Day remains an official holiday in France and Belgium. Armistice day was declared a holiday because President Wilson felt it was necessary to leave a day to celebrate the end of wars."

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Armistice_Day

What are YOU doing for Armistice Day, Veterans Day or Remembrance Day?
