As we head into the long weekend to celebrate the 4th of July, please keep Veterans in mind that suffer from PTSD. Military with PTSD has created these wonderful signs for Veterans to put in front of their yards so we know to be respectful when it comes to fireworks. According to Military.com fireworks have a tendency to trigger Veterans suffering from PTSD. " It's not uncommon for her to hear of veterans leaving their homes on the very holiday they fought in the name of, just to escape the noise." Lets have a wonderful holiday, but keep the people that have served our country in mind especially if you see a sign in their yard.

We hope you had a blessed weekend and ready to start a new week! Here's a little #MotivationalMonday from our Chaplin Vanessa:
Say this, NOT that
The past few weeks have been surrounded by great sadness, fear, confusion, and grief. Everyday there is someone around us that may be experiencing one or all of these feelings, and often we are unaware. As a community that shares similar feelings we should become familiar with ways to comfort one another in difficult times.
For instance, saying I am so sorry, I can’t imagine what you are going through instead of I am so sorry, at least your loved one is in a better place. Also, allowing someone the space to cry and share their emotion instead of you need to be strong for your family, don’t cry.
Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn. Romans 12:15

#MotivationalMonday
Be the light
Everyone has light to shine and someone that needs their illumination. Think about your light, where does it come from? Some of us have light that shines when we speak, when we hug, through our actions. It’s not about where it comes from, but knowing that we have it and how to use it. Sometimes the best light shines through our brokenness, scars, and vulnerability. Seek your light and shine baby, shine!
