We spent a long Thursday at the High Museum of Art in Atlanta, gazing, analyzing, awed. For Wednesday, my hope is to awaken tired children and tired me and attend our county’s Veterans’ Day celebration with a small batch of handwritten thank yous in hand.
Although one or more of the kids have participated in the program the last few years—which of course meant we had to attend—this year I’m motivated by the need to honor those who’ve served our country, and the fact that my camera yearns to shoot this event like few others.
I have two posts up on other sites this week:
- 25 Years and Counting at (in)courage
- Veterans’ Day: A Meaningful Photo Opportunity at Blissfully Domestic
If you’re not afraid of crying like a baby, hyperventilating, and running out of Kleenex, read these two posts by Ann Voskamp and examine blogging with fresh light:
- Why Blog? : Being an Upside Down Blogger (Part 1)
- What is Success? Life in the Upside Down Kingdom (Relevant10 Pt 2)
Other good reads:
- Let the Voting Begin! (The Homeschool Blog Awards are LIVE!)
- Christmas Gifts for Our Sponsored (Compassion International) Kids
- Send a Christmas card to an unsponsored Compassion International child for as little as $1.99

From November 7-21, 2010, in honor of Veteran’s Day, Strength for Service is pleased to offer a free download of the Kindle edition of the popular devotional.
While Strength for Service is geared toward the military and those in the service of others, many family members and friends find much comfort in the book’s inspirational words. Anyone can download this free version.
You do not need a Kindle to download this electronic copy – the version will also work with the free Kindle for Mac/PC and Kindle mobile versions.
