I wish you peace

International Day of Peace was created to help promote peace in the world. Peace can be a wonderful time when all is still and the process of growing continues. Peace is something I pray that the future generations will be able to have in abundance. Because I am not the only individual that holds this hop the International Day of Peace was created



In 1981 the United Nations created the International Day of Peace. By 2002 the day was made into a permanent holiday. With the use of education and bring awareness to the public the United Nations hopes to stengthen the ideal of peace throughout the world. So today, September 21st and every year on this date take a moment and stop doing what you are doing and say a wish for peace.

The United Nations was created in 1945 with the hopes of worldwide peace. World War II left everyone desiring speech. Thus creating the United Nations to try to strive to that goal

what really matters

When Life seems to take you on a long journey that may be going the wrong way may this poem that I share today help you along the way

What Really Matters

by Margaret Cagle


It matters not if I ever eat
Gourmet foods and fine steak.
It matters not if I ever wear
The finest clothes they make.

It matters not if I ever drive
The best cars that they sell.
What really matters most to me is
With the Lord, is my soul well?

We can just sin away our lives
And waste them down here below,
Or we can accept Jesus as Savior.
In His grace, then we can grow.

There is great peace in knowing
That when this life here is o'er,
I will step into God's presence
On that peaceful, golden shore

Happy Birthday United States Air Force

On September 18th 1947 the United States Air Force was officially seperated from the United States Army. Prior to this time it has simply been known as the Army Air Force. For the past 72 years the Air Force has observed September 18th as a special holiday celebrated by Air Force personnel, veterans and more. 




In 1907 the United States army created the Aeronautical Division service. This would later become the Aviation section during the years of 1914 - 1918. The name would later be changed to the U.S. Army Air Service in 1918 to 1926. In 1941 the title of U.S. Army AIr Force would be added. Gradually the United States Air Force would be allowed its own service title in 1947. 




While most things the United States Air Force does is very serious mattered there have been a few times thru history when they have shared in a bit of fun:






  • Did you know that the U.S. airforce has tracked the movement of Santa on the eve of December 24th since 1955??
  • video games have even been in on the action when in 2010 the Air Force helped create a supercomputer when they linked more than 1,500 Playstation 3's together. 
There have been several famous individuals who have served in the navy as well. These include 2 presidents (1) President Ronald Reagan and (2) George W. Bush
