Flag Day

Inspired by these three decades of state and local celebrations, Flag Day – the anniversary of the Flag Resolution of 1777 – was officially established by the Proclamation of President Woodrow Wilson on May 30th, 1916. While Flag Day was celebrated in various communities for years after Wilson’s proclamation, it was not until August 3rd, 1949, that President Truman signed an Act of Congress designating June 14th of each year as National Flag Day.

Not going to sulk…

Life is hard and we all feel it, experience it, and would like to run, hide, or just sulk. I fully admit to brooding and entertaining gloom over the news, a health issue, or relational strain. My faith and confidence is bolstered by a good song, a hearty hug, sound words, a comfort meal,  or a restful sleep. The image below was taken on a windy, cloudy, 33 degree day on a brief “therapy walk”. These remind me of the spunk and defiance we all need sometimes to shine brightly, to dance in the wind, and to allow our hearts to be filled with thanksgiving and pleasure. So here they are, the tender creation of One so much greater who knew just what I needed today. (And maybe, you as well) WM fb-9309
