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!!!

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: 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:  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:  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.

Blest Sunday: God Bless Our Veteran’s

MeOW Raena, where are you? It’s time fur our Blest Sunday posty.

          I’s comin’ sissy. I’s just had to help mommy with one last thing fur our posty today.

As always, we’re a day late and a dollar short, but that’s okay. Mommy says, every day is the purrfect day to say a meowsy big Fank you to all those who serve and have served our Country, and to their furmilies. We all want Peace. We purray fur Peace. But, the truth is, Peace only comes after war. And to those brave men and women, anipals and their furmilies who sacrifice(d) so much to ensure our safety and our Freedoms, we salute you. The very Freedoms they fight to purrtect are offen withheld from them.

          That’s so right sissy. Some of our soldiers are away in lands where they’re not allowed to openly purratice their Christian faith, or read a Bible, or purray out loud. Women have to cover up from head to toe and fear bein’ raped or worse. Not that it’s any better fur the men. Yet, these soldiers willingly put their lives on the line each and every day so that you and we can sleep safely in our beds at night. So that we can choose to worship or not. So that we can speak our minds and peacefully debate the issues impacting our Country. Those rights are sacred, God given, and ensured by our fore fathers in the Constitution of the USA. Purrlease, don’t let all the blood that was shed, all the lives that were lost or furever changed, be fur nuffin’. Make your voice and theirs be heard.

That’s great Raena. Fur those of us here at home, we can fight to keep our Freedoms by voting and letting our leaders know what we want. We live in the greatest Country in the world and are so Blest to have so many brave men and women doin’ what they can to keep us great. As far as we’re concerned, your sacrifice and service is/was not in vain. We purray daily, Lord, bless our soldiers and keep them safe and bring them home.

 

 3 cats meowing thank you

 

          We are Blest, sissy. We’re not sure why the Happy exists, so we’ll just say, Fanky fank you to all the Veteran’s and their furmilies. We send loud rumblin’ purrs to all of you. And fanky fank you to all our furiends. We don’t always agree, but we always come together to luvs and suppurt each other. 

 

Thank You emoji
