God Where Are You?

The Lord Is My Shepard                                                                                                                             WHERE ARE YOU GOD WHEN I NEED YOU?                               

                                                                                                                                     

                               We know God, We love God and we have Faith in God. So why does it seem as though He’s not there or listening to us? 

GO TO A QUIET PLACE, AND THERE YOU WILL FIND GOD WAITING FOR YOU

                                             Do you know that God is always Listening to us. Did you ever stop to think that maybe YOU are not listening to God?

God’s Loves us so very much that He gave us His Son to die for our Sins. When we ask Jesus into our Heart  He lives within you. He knows your thoughts, He knows your wants and He knows your Needs. He knows all this without you even telling Him.

 Sometimes we get so caught up in our lives that we fail to keep in touch with the Lord.   Things are going so well, we are in line for a raise, so we bought that new car. We are sure we will be the one to get a  promotion!  We have worked twice as hard as all the rest. We never missed a Day, we gave 110% to the Company.

Then as they say, All Hell Breaks Lose! Things start to fall apart.The Company is not doing as well as we were told. They are sending in an Outsider to figure out who will go and who will stay. You are assured by your boss that everything will be OK.

You hear of one after another being made to take a huge cut in pay or leave. Some are able to retire, they are the lucky ones. Now it’s your turn. You walk into the office withe confidence. You are told someone Younger has been given the Promotion. He has new and better ideas that will get the Company back on it’s feet and growing again. It’s quit a shock. You are done. Things have turned upside down. Where do you turn, what do you do?

All the plans for your families future has gone up in smoke! You don’t have a plan, who do you turn to? Then you remember GOD. But, should this be the way things should be? Shouldn’t it be tun to God first?

 God has always been there for you. It did not take a Bad time for Him to appear and help you. God waits for you to Pray and ask his help. We are his Children. He loves us as much as we love ou

r own Children. Just as our Children do, when they pray, we ask for things that are not best for us. Our plan is not always God’s Plan. When things don’t go our way, we think God has abandon

ed us. When in fact it is the other way around! We are the ones that abandoned God! When we should have been talking with Him and asking for his help on the right path to follow Praising Him Daily, we reley on ourselves.

Welcome Home to a Beautiful Landscape

Welcome Home! You can see from the picture above, how the eye is lead into the front entrance of this home. You walk through flowers bordering both sides of a meandering path. Everything is well maintained, and the colors work well with the color of the Home.

  • Where do you start?

The first thing to do is to clean up everything that don’t belong. Mow the grass, cut back weeds. Take a look at you’re flower beds, have they been Mulched lately? This is a BIG part of Landscaping. It makes the Trees and Flowers show up better and makes the whole Flower Bed appear as one continuous Bed. It is the finishing touch, so make sure to use a mulch color that everyone would love. I would suggest Double Cut Black or Brown Mulch. If you decide to use something like Red or Blue (yes they do have Blue) these may be something others would not like. (This only pertains if you are selling your home.)

  •    Add Value To Your Home

Did you know that Cleaning Up, Fixing Up, and Painting Up you’re Home adds Value. When I was doing Landscaping I did some Seminars for Real Estate Companies. The seminars covered Curb Appeal, which has to do with the overall condition of the out side of the Home. That includes the House, the Landscaping, and the Cleanliness of the Property. Due to that, the Realtors realized that, if the Outside was a mess, the Customers wouldn’t even t make an appointment to see the inside of the home.

Consequently, if your like me, I do a drive-by of the property before I’d even make an appointment. If the outside is a mess I will not take the time to look at the inside. Lost Sale! Most of all, Curb Appeal does make a difference on making the sale or not making the sale!

The History of Veterans Day

History of Veterans Day     This Post has been Taken in whole from an Article found in a Newsletter of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs — In the Hope it will help Americans to understand the reason for Veterans Day, and to appreciate our Soldiers and what they have done for this Country.

 

World War I – known at the time as “The Great War” – officially ended when the Treaty of Versailles was signed on June 28, 1919, in the Palace of Versailles outside the town of Versailles, France. However, fighting ceased seven months earlier when an armistice, or temporary cessation of hostilities, between the Allied nations and Germany went into effect on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month. For that reason, November 11, 1918, is generally regarded as the end of “the war to end all wars.”

Soldiers of the 353rd Infantry near a church at Stenay, Meuse in France, wait for the end of hostilities.  This photo was taken at 10:58 a.m., on November 11, 1918, two minutes before the armistice ending World War I went into effect

In November 1919, President Wilson proclaimed November 11 as the first commemoration of Armistice Day with the following words: “To us in America, the reflections of Armistice Day will be filled with solemn pride in the heroism of those who died in the country’s service and with gratitude for the victory, both because of the thing from which it has freed us and because of the opportunity it has given America to show her sympathy with peace and justice in the councils of the nations…”

The original concept for the celebration was for a day observed with parades and public meetings and a brief suspension of business beginning at 11:00 a.m.

The United States Congress officially recognized the end of World War I when it passed a concurrent resolution on June 4, 1926, with these words:

Whereas the 11th of November 1918, marked the cessation of the most destructive, sanguinary, and far reaching war in human annals and the resumption by the people of the United States of peaceful relations with other nations, which we hope may never again be severed, and

Whereas it is fitting that the recurring anniversary of this date should be commemorated with thanksgiving and prayer and exercises designed to perpetuate peace through good will and mutual understanding between nations; and

Whereas the legislatures of twenty-seven of our States have already declared November 11 to be a legal holiday: Therefore be it Resolved by the Senate (the House of Representatives concurring), that the President of the United States is requested to issue a proclamation calling upon the officials to display the flag of the United States on all Government buildings on November 11 and inviting the people of the United States to observe the day in schools and churches, or other suitable places, with appropriate ceremonies of friendly relations with all other peoples.

An Act (52 Stat. 351; 5 U. S. Code, Sec. 87a) approved May 13, 1938, made the 11th of November in each year a legal holiday—a day to be dedicated to the cause of world peace and to be thereafter celebrated and known as “Armistice Day.” Armistice Day was primarily a day set aside to honor veterans of World War I, but in 1954, after World War II had required the greatest mobilization of soldiers, sailors, Marines and airmen in the Nation’s history; after American forces had fought aggression in Korea, the 83rd Congress, at the urging of the veterans service organizations, amended the Act of 1938 by striking out the word “Armistice” and inserting in its place the word “Veterans.” With the approval of this legislation (Public Law 380) on June 1, 1954, November 11th became a day to honor American veterans of all wars.

Later that same year, on October 8th, President Dwight D. Eisenhower issued the first “Veterans Day Proclamation” which stated: “In order to insure proper and widespread observance of this anniversary, all veterans, all veterans’ organizations, and the entire citizenry will wish to join hands in the common purpose. Toward this end, I am designating the Administrator of Veterans’ Affairs as Chairman of a Veterans Day National Committee, which shall include such other persons as the Chairman may select, and which will coordinate at the national level necessary planning for the observance. I am also requesting the heads of all departments and agencies of the Executive branch of the Government to assist the National Committee in every way possible.”

On that same day, President Eisenhower sent a letter to the Honorable Harvey V. Higley, Administrator of Veterans’ Affairs (VA), designating him as Chairman of the Veterans Day National Committee.

In 1958, the White House advised VA’s General Counsel that the 1954 designation of the VA Administrator as Chairman of the Veterans Day National Committee applied to all subsequent VA Administrators. Since March 1989 when VA was elevated to a cabinet level department, the Secretary of Veterans Affairs has served as the committee’s chairman.

The Uniform Holiday Bill (Public Law 90-363 (82 Stat. 250)) was signed on June 28, 1968, and was intended to ensure three-day weekends for Federal employees by celebrating four national holidays on Mondays: Washington’s Birthday, Memorial Day, Veterans Day, and Columbus Day. It was thought that these extended weekends would encourage travel, recreational and cultural activities and stimulate greater industrial and commercial production. Many states did not agree with this decision and continued to celebrate the holidays on their original dates.

The first Veterans Day under the new law was observed with much confusion on October 25, 1971. It was quite apparent that the commemoration of this day was a matter of historic and patriotic significance to a great number of our citizens, and so on September 20th, 1975, President Gerald R. Ford signed Public Law 94-97 (89 Stat. 479), which returned the annual observance of Veterans Day to its original date of November 11, beginning in 1978. This action supported the desires of the overwhelming majority of state legislatures, all major veterans service organizations and the American people.

Veterans Day continues to be observed on November 11, regardless of what day of the week on which it falls. The restoration of the observance of Veterans Day to November 11 not only preserves the historical significance of the date, but helps focus attention on the important purpose of Veterans Day: A celebration to honor America’s veterans for their patriotism, love of country, and willingness to serve and sacrifice for the common good.

God Bless America– Thank You Lord for our Soldiers
