"If you write FOR a particular market or FOR a particular editor you will often miss the mark. But if you write because your fingers have danced across the keyboard, because a character has tapped you on the shoulder, because a story has settled in your heart, then even if you never sell it you have done the work you were meant to do. And sometime, dear readers, real magic happens." Jane Yolen


Lest We Forget

May we remember that today is more than a day for picnics, the "first official weekend of summer," and a day off.

Freedom isn't free.

Thank You, Father, for those who paid the ultimate temporal price for our temporal freedom, and for Your Son, who paid the ultimate eternal price for our eternal freedom.

God bless the USA (for it is the only way we will be blessed!).


  1. Amen Joanne! I am so grateful!

    Do you know I have looked many places for a new flag to display today and I can't find one?!?!?! Am I still in America or what?

    Thankfully I have banners that I display every year, so they are up -- but no flag off of my front porch. After today, I'll find one. lol


  2. Amen, Joanne. Let us never forget.

  3. Bless you Joanne! That song tears me up every time. Wonderful video.

  4. Beautiful video--that song always gives me chills.


Thanks for stopping by. I would love to hear your thoughts - please share them!
