My late night treasury

I don't know if it was insomnia, or a little too much chocolate, but I was awake in the middle of the night ... and got a treasury on Etsy.  This one is very special to me ... one of my favorite uncles served in the Navy and since, several friends.  While Iwas in High School, my mom's cousin had been in the Navy Band.  When they came to perform in our little town, my younger brother was chosen to perform with them ... and when he died, the Navy hymn was played at his funeral.  On one of our building projects, we built a church about 2 miles from Mayport Naval Station.  We were awed by the JFK and loved seeing the fleet come in!  As a proud American, the Navy has always been near and dear to my heart.

While looking through the shop of fellow Michigander, jpcrossstitch, I came across her design for the Navy Seal (logo).   Suddenly, the words to the Navy hymn, "Eternal Father, Strong to Save" popped in to my head ... and I knew I needed to use it as a treasury theme.  In the wee hours this morning, I was able to get my treasury spot.  I give you "Eternal Father, Strong to Save".

I come from a long line of patriots and military. I'm partial to the Marine Corps myself, since my dad was a Marine but I love and support all branches of the military and all of our brave service men and women. Great post and treasury!

How privileged I am to be included here in this wonderful treasury. I also feel strongly about supporting our troops and military personnel. That's why I have included items in my shop for all branches. Feel free to visit me to see all of the military items currently available. Thank you for your interest in my shop! :o)
