Blue Monday - House of Honor

Welcome! It's Blue Monday! For instructions, just click here.

Click on some of the links below and see what Blues our Bloggers share. Be sure to wish them a Happy Blue Monday!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Something special is happening right around the corner from our house! A disabled veteran is having a house built for him and his family. There was a dedication ceremony last week, and I captured these pictures. There's a beautiful Blue sky and a bit of Blue in the signs. Of course, our flag contains Blue too.




Here's a closer look at the sign.
The organization is called Homes for Our Troops.




The homes provided by Homes for Our Troops are given at NO COST to the Veterans.

Happy Blue Monday!

Judi said...

Happy Blue Monday Sally *hugs*
Isn't this a wonderful story. We watched some of this on TV this weekend and its just a wonderful gift to this veteran.

Wonderful skies of blue...I am sure ours will become blue and stay that way for more than a short time. Although I should not complain as we learn more about the wicked tornados again.

I hope you've had a good weekend
Judi

Sandi@ Rose Chintz Cottage said...

Thanks for stopping by, my dear blogging friend. It's just lovely to hear from you and I would love to sit and have a cup of tea with you too.

Blessings,
Sandi

Great post! Thanks for dropping by today. Yes, Mosaic is a good Bible but it will never be my favorite. I didn't really need another Bible but I won this one and I do like it. Thanks for sharing what your Pastor said about Translations. I don't visit much anymore but I think of you often.
