A Wrinkle in Time

My husband and I both look very young for our ages. In fact,
we've hardly aged a day since we first laid eyes on each
other in college -- at least, that's what we tell each
other. But our children have a way of bringing us crashing
back to earth.

Recently, my husband and I were discussing a man who was
running for public office.

"He's a Vietnam vet," commented my husband.

"What's that?" queried our young daughter.

Trying to answer the question in terms a four-year-old could
readily grasp, my husband replied, "Well, honey, that means
that the man fought in a war that happened when Mommy and
Daddy were little."

Our daughter regarded us both thoughtfully for a moment,
then asked, "So, was he a Viking?"
Everything can change in the blink of an eye. But don't worry; God never blinks.
America will only be the land of the free so long as it is the home of the Brave
