God bless the men who stained the ground red; who layed down their lives, who paid the price through the sacrifice of their fortune, their cattle, their bread. They left their wives as widows and children as well…they did it for me, so I could be free.
I’m so glad our Founding Men didn’t shrink back with worry or fear. I’m sure they had ample emotions of both. How will this turn out? Will our life end? Will America prevail or will British ships sail home with a banner
When loves walks in you can feel it…
Unfortunately only women will able to relate to this, but if you’ve ever been pregnant you know what I mean. Once the baby in gestation gets to around the 16 weeks you may begin to feel the baby move. As the baby grows the feelings get stronger and you can literally discern the shape of the baby. My oldest had her toes wrapped around my ribs for the entire third trimester and I could caress the heel of her foot quite discernibly. I

Every rendition shows her immediately accepting the angel and accepting the offer. But let’s be real for a second—she was human. She was probably having a hard time processing and understanding what happened to her, what was being asked of her. Ultimately, God
I was raised my a Mother who payed enormous attention to the details. Today, I recognize the merit to be found in this. Sometimes it takes a long time to truly get to know a person…and at times it takes even longer to get best acquainted with ourself.
