The Brenda Photo Challenge

I have a passion for barns. I don't know when this started but I do remember that even as a child I enjoyed playing in the neighbors barn. To us it was a place to day dream, play hide and seek, a hang out, a climbing wall, a treasure hunt and we even had a swing in the loft. It didn't matter if it was raining or the sun was shinning, the barn was always calling to us. It was surrounded by corn so it made us feel like we were in our own little world. As a grown up I always noticed how well they were made and the usefulness of them. As a prim girl I always wonder what treasures they hold hidden in the walls or nooks of the ceiling. And as a photo bug I started noticing so many more than before and the angle potential of each and every one I saw. So now I take pictures of everyone I can and as we all know a picture can speak a thousand words. I will let you decide what this old beauty is saying to you.

Veteran's Day

I just wanted to take time to say thank you to all the service men and women out there who have served or is still serving. It is because of you that we still have the privilege of living in a free country. God bless you and your families. My father, brother, uncle, cousins and many friends have served during peace time and in war. And today my thoughts are about them and my prayers are with the many others I don't know that is away from their families today serving our country. And for the countless numbers that have lost their lives protecting us, God bless you! So remember them today as I do. And if you see someone in the service take time to shake their hand or even a hug and say thank you. And if the someone you want to thank now walks with the Lord remember they are only a kneel away.
