Our official state flag of Texas, the Lone Star Flag,
was adopted in 1845 when Texas became the 28th state of the United States of America.
The colors represent bravery - red,
purity - white,
and loyalty - blue.
The large white star was first used on Texas flags in the 1830's during the battles between Texas and Mexico.

God is God over the storms in my life & world -
and I am His.
Trusting in Him. Holding to His Promises as He holds me.
Learning to laugh, to love, & to live ... again - without Rick, but with God
Life goes on ... even when we don't want it to.
Great grief is indicative of a great Love.
Rick, my Sweetheart.
Margaret, his Beloved.
Always & Forever.
