Link To Our National Anthem
I am a Veteran and have served my country in a war that some reduced to a conflict.
It seems to me that it becomes real easy for folks to forget the price that is paid when our First Responders and Veterans try and do the right thing and stand in the gap for a member of the community who they don't even know.
I was sent a link to the background info for our National Anthem. I invite you to listen to the story and you won't ever listen to our National Anthem the same again. Pray for our First Responders and our Vets as they deserve this moment of prayer. It's the least we can do today!
Thank You for your Service and Support. First Responders we love you.
Thank You Vets and First Responders for your willingness to make things right and stand in the gap for the community.

Notes from Chaplain Jim
Homeostasis simply put is a state of equilibrium. The influence of the posture of Homeostasis involves balance! It could be the balance and juggling act that many of us have regarding our self-care, schedules, families and recreation.
It typically involves more complex issues than sitting upright in a chair without falling over but for some you have to start somewhere right?
Our First Responders have many items to keep in check or in balance the least of which would be self-care.
There seems to be a lot that we can get away with when it comes to taking good care of ourselves unless we are at home with those who know us best. That’s when we hope for grace.
I asked my bride not too long ago how she thought I was doing – reply: maybe you could go shoot your bow, try and tie some flies so you can go fishing.
So much for Homeostasis!
We all need to take care of ourselves better and we all need someone who will tell us the truth too!
Glad for this resounding truth – God loves you as you are and not as you should be!
My wife loves me enough to let me go recreate every once in a while!
Happy Anniversary Brenda! J
