Vintage Things and Selfless Service

I'm still thinking churchy things today.  

I stumbled upon a great site, The Graphic Fairy.  Adorable vintage images.  Free to download.  Cool to peruse.  Here's 2 of my favorite churchy ones.

And some other fun ones.  Reminds me of someone I know very well...

Hello Eloise!

And isn't this so cute?

This is such a fun site.  Again, check it out HERE.  You will spend entirely too much time there.  It will make a bad employee today.  You've been warned.

In other news, we had an incomplete weekend.  Our Saturday night church dinner was a blast.  They're always super duper fun.  But other than that, I was flying solo. 

I teared up in church today.  Really teary.  My friend's husband is back from Afghanistan.  They were sitting in the pew as a family.  It was so beautiful to see them sitting together again.  I cried tears of joy for his homecoming but was also so touched by his sacrifice.  His return was not guaranteed.  Not everyone comes home.  And I cried because that's so sad.  I know I could never be so selfless.

I failed to recognize Veteran's Day last Thursday.  So, I want to thank you all who have served our country so bravely.  You are my heroes.

Thank you!

Before I was born, my dad served in the Army. He never really talked about it so throughout my whole life, I never really understood what he did. Thursday was the first time in my life I thanked my dad (of ALL people) for serving our country! He said, "That really meant a lot coming from you than any other person."

I hear ya, Em. I get really emotional when I see families reunited or those who are missing loved ones overseas. It's a sacrifice I can barely comprehend. We are so blessed!

p.s. I always find something to get teary over at church.
