Photo Hunt ~ Veteren's/Military

This week's photo hunt theme is Veteran's/Military. I just didn't have time to go out and get the picture I wanted but I got this shot the other day when I was at the lake. I have no idea who the couple is. But the picture of it really struck me. The cannon from WWII (I think) and then them sitting there in such peace obviously enjoying each other's company. It reminded me of how we are in peace and have freedom because others have given their lives and fought for that. It also reminded me that there are service men and women who, at this moment are away from their loved ones, serving their countries in varied capacities, whether in war or trying to maintain peace for others. Thank you to all our service men and women and the veterans!


For more Photo Hunt go here.

This one is really good. A time to reflect good deeds. My picture is about the military parade yearly done by the Cadets of different schools here in our place.

A picture is worth a thousand words, but in this case I would say it's worth even more.

I just caught up on your last few days and read your post about having to make a decision regarding your job. You are doing the right thing by taking it to the Lord. Paths open up at the right time and doors close also at the right time. You will be in my prayers Susanne.

Sending love and hugs to you!

Good thoughts, Susanne. I don't think I would have caught that -- the vision of peace next to an instrument of war, the one made possible by the other.

Wow Susanne, what a terrific photo and so appropriate for The Hunt this weekend.

We do take our freedoms for granted. It is good to remember that we have brave men/women to thank for their sacrifice.
