God Bless America!
I don't want to use this column as a "who did what to whom" forum regarding events surrounding this week's military action. What I will say is that it made me tear up this morning when my granddaughter Emma and I were admiring our neighbor's nice American Flag waving in the breeze. It does break my heart to see our U.S. Flag burned by foreign countries. I've seen it before and likely will again.
It was nice to have such a wonderful conversation with my granddaughter about The Pledge of Allegiance. She knew to place her hand over her heart. Her kindergarten class, she said, recites the pledge; she knew most of the words even though she's only 5. I thank her teacher for allowing the students to show respect for their country.
It's going to be a stormy weekend, apparently. So buckle up, 'Dorothy'. I hope everyone is safe. Is there anyone who will always watch "The Wizard of Oz?" I will.
Next week, I'm privy to attend a lunch regarding our new MyRideBedford program. This state program is a plus for the Senior Citizens Center and has potential to add dimension to our local senior citizen transportation efforts. Volunteers are invited to attend a kick off at 11 a.m. Thursday, Jan. 16, at First United Methodist Church on the public square. Call 931-703-0286 to reserve your place or to find out more about how you can get involved. It will encompass just a few hours a month. The transportation is for taking our seniors to doctor's appointments and to the grocery store.
In the meantime, here's a little sunshine for your weekend: What truth has God shown you recently? Did you receive it as a bitter pill or sweet honey? (Our Daily Bread.)
