Sunday Scripture Blessings Link Up 5 26 19 Memorial Holiday

This Memorial Week-end and every day, I honor the ones who make my America safe by their heroism. Thank you to all Veterans who serve in any capacity. I admire and respect them, and hope all have a nice Memorial holiday. I say a prayer for all veterans that life blesses each and every one, and if it doesn't that God intercedes and gives them all that they need and deserve. I know America is lacking in how well we do take care of our vets, and that is sad.

Below is a link to a list of ones who died from Ohio during Vietnam if you would like to look at it. I honor their names:

Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one's life for one's friendsJohn 15:13 NIV

Defend the weak and the fatherless; uphold the cause of the poor and the oppressed. Rescue the weak and the needy; deliver them from the hand of the wicked. Psalm 82: 3-4

A poem I wrote to honor my adopted POW

Bring my baby least for a day
Even if I can't wipe the tears away -
At least I can see him one more time...
And then in my heart, I'll know he's fine -
He was so young when he went away....
he had no idea it would be such a long stay -
He has suffered so much for you and I...
please bring my baby home before I die -
I just need to gaze on his face once more...
So long since he left our shore -
I'll hold him in such a long embrace...
Ahhhh..just to see that face -
It's weathered, It's worn...He looks so forlorn -
He has longed to be home for so many years...
He long ago forgot how to cry many tears -
He doesn't even know or remember who he set out to be...
He only remembers that he saved you and me And
the wonderful land once more that our forefathers named
when they reached this shore
That's what my baby did for you and me -
He didn't ask much...
He was so proud to go do his duty with the rest of the crowd -
But he just wants to come home now and rest...
He is so weary -

Sunday Scripture Blessings 5 19 19

Thank you to all who stopped by last Sunday and visited and/or left me a comment. And thank you for the prayers. It was a blessing. I miss the love of my life so much. Still cannot believe he is gone. Our children have been amazing. The day it happened, I did end up in the hospital. The physical pain was unbearable, but thankfully, it wasn't a heart attack. It was just the shock and anxiety, I guess.

Please share a scripture blessing. You're next. Thank you.

Sunday Scripture Blessings 5 12 19 and Sadness

Why there was no Sunday Scripture Blessings last week:

For those that have come to Peabea Scribbles over the years, you may or may not know that I married my husband when I was 17 and he was 19. Fifty-five years we have been together until last weekend. I lost my best friend, my confidant, my fishing buddy and all around buddy in life, my problem solver, and the person who has taken care of me and the kids all these years, and the love of my life. He was here by my side and in an instant, he was gone.

I married an 'on the road musician' when I was 17 and he was 19. (I know lots thought it was a 'have to' like some back in the day, but it wasn't, we just wanted to be married), who then wore so many hats like technical illustrator for a bit, music lessons - he loved talking doing anything music, and in the end he was self employed truck owner/operator.

With my husband, you never knew what direction we would be going, but it was always a fun, even if a bit nerve-wracking time with him. To know him, was to like him because he loved to make and have fun. He taught each kid an instrument, and insisted they also learn a different one in school. He and I also played 5 nights a week in the band prior to the kids, and we had a family band for years, and years.Those years wound down, the nest became empty, so it was off to the lake and camping for me and him. After that, we have enjoyed the last five or six years just retired and a slow, stay at home life with the popcorn, tv, etc. It will be different, but I will be okay. He taught me how to be okay.

Thank you for all who stop by and share a Scripture Blessing. This is the first trying Linky Tools so if any concerns, let me know and hopefully, it will work okay. Have a fun week ahead, and
