Veteran’s Day: Thank You For Your Service

Hey everypawdy, it’s me, RaenaBelle. We wouldn’t normally post today, but it’s a very special day, so we had to come and have our say. Today is Veteran’s day here in the U.S., a day set aside to remember those who serve in the armed forces. Those who protect our lives, liberty and freedoms. Those who keep us safe and say, “As long as I’m here, you can sleep safely at night.”

          That’s right Raena. And to be honest, writin’ these posts is not an easy task fur us. We see the words Happy Veteran’s Day everywhere, and quite frankly, we don’t know what’s so happy about it. Happy implies good times and great joy, but there’s nothing joyful about fathers, mothers, sisters and brothers shipping off to some foreign land to kill or be killed. Or suiting up and putting their lives at risk for those of us who can’t.  

 

Thank You emoji

 

 

Oh sissy, we are so grateful fur those who serve. And, we remember them every day. We live in the greatest country on the planet because so many are/were willing to fight and sacrifice to ensure the very freedoms we often take fur granted. The freedoms so many are tryin’ to take away from us these days. Ifin the founding fathers were to see what’s goin’ on today, I’s think they would be ashamed and saddened that so many have furgotten the sacrifices made to give us our Constitution, Bill of Rights, and freedom from tyranny.

          So true Raena. Our eyes fill with tears when we think about those who can’t be with their families because they’re keeping us and our way of life safe. Those who will never know us nor us them, but fight fur us just the same. Patriotism is alive and well in our hearts and home and we purray daily fur all who serve and fur those among us who have lost their way.

 

Dezi bows her head to pray

 

 

 

Freedom isn’t Free. Purrlease, remember the blood that was and is shed to make this country great. To all who serve, we salute you and we thank you and your families fur your sacrifice. You are always in our purrayers.

          We urge every one to remember to thank any vet you may encounter. Whether you agree with the war or conflict they may have fought in, they do/did so willingly so you wouldn’t have too. So that you could sleep safely in your bed at night. So you could disagree with those in power, speak out your opinions, good or bad, worship the way you choose, and yes, bear arms so that our government can’t return to the tyrannical rule the original settlers fled from.  

 

Dezi and Raena thank Vets for their service

     We say, THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE!!!   

 

Animated thank you rose

Till the next time…………………………………………………..Be Blest!!!

Blest Sunday: We Honor And Salute You

Dezi:  MeOW  C’mon Raena, today’s a very special Blest Sunday.

          Raena:  Really sissy? What’s so special ‘bout today?

Dezi:  It’s Veteran’s Day, Raena. A day we take to ‘member the soldiers who fought, and many gave their lives so we could be free from tyranny. So many brave men, women and anipals gave their lives on distant shores, so that loved ones and even strangers like us could live our lives free from fear of wars in our own home. Me thinks we furget how things could be. We’ve been free fur so long that me thinks we sometimes take our Country’s greatness and freedoms fur granted.

 

Raena sits pretty in a patriotic memory frame

 

 

 

          Raena: I’s think you’re right sissy. It’s not purretty to think ‘bout young men, women and anipals lying in a trench on some foreign soil bleeding and dying. To think ‘bout them bein’ lonely and scared, and away from their families and loved ones; not knowin’ ifin they’ll ever see them again. To think ‘bout them swearin’ an oath to purrtect us…to die fur complete strangers. Soldiers who never gave a second thought to goin’ to bad places and facin’ bad people. Standing their ground and sayin’ “As long as I’m here, no one is going to hurt you”. 

 

Dezi with bowed head praying on the pet steps

 

 

 

Dezi:  So true Raena. There’s so much hate and discord in our Country right now. So many peeps sayin’ and doin’ things that would get them thrown into prison or killed in lesser Countries. Peeps tryin’ to take away the very freedoms that those soldiers bled and died for. The truth is, it’s a slap in the face, it’s like spittin’ on the graves of all those who bravely fought and lost their lives to secure those freedoms and make our Country great. It makes us so sad to hear ‘bout our vets bein’ treated badly. 

 

Raena sits on cat tree staring up at a fly

 

 

 

          Raena:  I’s think all those soldiers who died to make America great are turnin’ over in their graves at some of the nonsense goin’ on right now, sissy. In our house, we bleed red white and blue. We honor our flag and each and every soldier who willingly defends/defended our Country and us from our enemies. We are so Blest to have been born in such an amazing Country. We are Blest to have a mommy who has taught us the price that was paid to make our Nation great. 

 

Dezi lays in mommy's lap

 

 

 

Dezi:  Yes Raena, we are indeed Blest. We fank and salute each and every veteran and their families today and every day. We fank each and every soldier who serves us now. You may not know us, and we may not know your name, but we ask God to Bless and keep you each day. While you’re watchin’ over us, God is watchin’ over you. As we do each week, we’d like to remind you all to Give Thanks fur the Blessings in your lives. and we wanna fank you all fur bein’ Blessings in ours.

          Raena:  And, as we do each week, we’re linkin’ up with the Kitties Blue fur Sunday Selfies. Purrlease ‘member to fanky fank our vets fur their service. Because of them and their sacrifice, you can sleep safely in your bed at night.

 

Till the next time…………………………………………………Be Blest!!!

Chatting Cats: Happy Independence Day

Hey everypawdy, it’s me, RaenaBelle. I’s been readin’ up on this Independence day that we’re celebratin’ today here in the U.S.. Ya’ know, what I’s read made me so purroud to be an American kitty, and even brought a few tears to mine’s eyes. We are so Blest to have had such wise fore fathers who recognized God had created them and gave them the freedom to choose how to live and govern. This great Country was born out of the desire to escape tyranny. 

 

Dezi lays in a box

 

 

 

          That’s right Raena. And, ‘stead of creatin’ a government with a king or a dictator, they decided our government should be one that’s ruled by the people it serves. Unfurtunately, some of the repurrsentatives that have been elected don’t always follow the wishes of the people they repurrsent. It’s a real shame when this happens. That bein’ meowed, just like any other employee, those repurrsentatives can be voted out and new ones voted in.

We thought it was a cool coincidence that we took this foto this

meownin’, July 4th and the foto nummer is 1776. We just had to post it.

 

 

 

Yep sissy, and I’s also learned that no where else can peeps talk so badly ‘bout their reps without dire consequences. Throughout history peeps have been jailed and even killed fur speakin’ out against their leaders/government. But here in the U.S., peeps are free to say whatever they want, and the news sure is takin’ advantage of that lately. The latest bein’ all this talk ‘bout refugees bein’ sepurrated from their families and held in cages. They wanna blame President Trump and say it’s all his fault. Thing is, none of this started with him, and those refugees are actually bein’ treated better now than they were unner furmer administrations. And unlike us anipals when we have no home, they’re not bein’ held in cages. That’s fanky fanks to President Trump. 

 

Dezi lays in a box licking her paw

 

 

 

 

          Those are good points Raena, but we’re not here to meow ‘bout pawlitics today. We’re here to celebrate the signin’ of the Declaration of Independence and our freedom from tyranny. We live in the greatest Country in this Universe. God Bless America!!!

 

Raena sits on perch looking back

 

 

 

You’re right sissy. Ifin anypawdy’s innerested in readin’ that amazin’ document that brought ‘bout this Country’s freedom, I’s think wikipedia breaks it down nicely here. It also gives some background and other innerestin’ infurmation ‘bout that time in our history. You know the one thing I’s didn’t find in mine’s research? I’s didn’t find that any of our fore fathers set off fireworks that day. So, I’s thinkin’ we oughtta tell everypawdy, no fireworks this year. What do you think sissy? 

 

          Me thinks that’s a great idea Raena. Unfurtunately, me doesn’t think anypawdy’s gonna pay attention to us. But, did you see the new toy mommy got us to keep our minds off those noisy boomers? It’s kind’a like those hexbugs we like so much but bigger. Mommy says she hopes it stays out from unner the oven and fridge a bit better.

Really sissy? Do we have to wait fur the boomers to start befur we can play with it? I’s wanna play with it now.

Happy Independence Day

 

 

 

          Guess you can ask mommy, Raena. But, me thinks we oughtta finish brekky furst. Anyways, we should wish everypawdy a Happy Independence day and God Bless America!!!

Happy Independence Day

 

 

 

Okay sissy. We’d like to remind everypawdy to stay safe and don’t furget that not all us aniplas enjoy the pawrties and festivities. You can check out our posts ‘bout makin’ your kitties and woofies happy while you celebrate here and here. We’re still gettin’ caught up, so we’ll be by to visit you all soon. God Bless America!!!
