A Friend Saw This and Thought of Me

A friend of mine sent me a link on Facebook with the following message:

…I saw the heels and thought of you doing your jerrycan lift…

She went on to say:

I admired the fact you could do the jerrycan lift in them.

Believe me, they are extremely heavy! These large cans are filled to the top with water. The purpose is to determine ones upper strength. One in each hand must be carried for a certain amount of metres, without putting them down, keeping up with the instructor at all times.

I must say, I did surprise myself with the amount of activities I participated in with my Mary-Jane shoes – to include marching and lifting weights.

Fun times with a couple of military units a little while ago…

Ruby red, the color of the stripes He bore
Draped across, waving glory, at attention I adored
White Crystal color, were the stripes and stars
Displaying his presence and light
A symbol that lights up the night
Ocean blue the water that cleanses our souls
The back drop to the stars we’ve come to know

What one lifes sacrifice can give
I see a symbol of God, laid over his father
As to say you are honored
He gave His life for us, as did Christ
The ultimate sacrifice and glory
Leaving a longing, a pride that pushes us through

Perspective & The Reality of War ~ November 30th

~ Thirty of Thirty ~

Our flag does not fly because the wind moves it. It flies with the last breath of every military member who died protecting it.

Amen

Armistice Day / Memorial Day / Remembrance Day ~ November 11th.

Hostilities formally ended at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month in 1918. However I, like many, believe this day now represents our Military from past to present; from the fallen (RIP) to current veterans.

Every day for the month of November, I shall be publishing one post a day at 11:00 (GMT), as a mark of respect and gratitude for our Military (British and American).

The pairings of images have been matched by Casey from Just War Things, who himself spent 6 years in the US Army, and served 15 months in Baghdad. His blog has many more images.
