Truth from my Sunday Morning devotion

 “An anxious heart weighs a man down, but a kind word cheers him up” 

Proverbs 12:25




This photo is from our trip to Branson. We are outside the Dixie Stampede.  My husband has an especially big smile because he had just chatted with 2 other Marine veterans. One of those Marines took this shot for us and we used their IPad to take their photos. 
We were having a good time just being on vacation but visiting with those 2 Marines made my husband even happier. He had never met them before, one served during Vietnam and the other during Desert Shield. Marines just seem to always greet each other, shake hands, say ooh-rah, and they bring each other up.  - it works just like the Bible verse promises it will




those flowers, they are pretty, but it is too cold in Missouri for outdoor blooms, all of those are silk. 
It still makes for a pretty photo background. 


Thank you for coming by- I hope my blog is always kind and a cheerful place to visit.

  2. My husband, retired Air Force, also enjoys visiting with fellow vets. We have not been to Branson since we moved back home to AR. We should definitely plan a trip. Take care and many blessing to you and yours.

  3. So true about the power of words. I find the older I get the more I want and need to be around people whose words are uplifting. It also amazing how many people there are that are not kind and cheerful. You are a bright spot. Have a wonderful day.
