The Lord Knew...

Here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), I'd like to discuss something that touched my heart. posted an article entitled, The Female Pilots We Betrayed

If you read this article posted by the New York Times, you'll be aware that the Women Airforce Service Pilots, known as WASPS, were not treated the same way that men were, during WW2.

If you read that article, you'll know that this was said,
"After a protracted fight, WASPs finally earned veteran status in 1977, thanks to a law signed by Jimmy Carter. And in 2002, the Army granted the WASPs military funeral honors — the playing of Taps, a rifle salute and an American flag to the family — and affirmed that they were eligible for inurnment at Arlington."
But last March, the secretary of the Army overturned that decision because of a technicality. The likely explanation is that Arlington expects to run out of room by 2030. And yet there are over 30,000 spaces left to store urns.
The Army that desperately needed female pilots in 1942 and then discarded them in 1944 has turned its back on them again.
Last month, the House and Senate introduced bills to make this right. Most of the 113 surviving WASPs are in their 90s now. There is not much time left to ensure that they get the honors they deserve."
These women were Americans.  In my opinion, they truly deserve to be honoured... no differently than men have been.
Why do I feel this way?
My mom was in the army.  Not the American army. 
My mom was a member of the Canadian Women's Army Corp (CWAC). 
If you would like to read about CWAC, please click on this link:
The article states that women members of CWAC did only a few types of work.  I cannot necessarily agree that the article states everything these women army personnel did.
You see, it states about how some CWAC members were stationed in Washington, D.C.
My mom was one of those CWAC members.  She was stationed in Washington, D.C.
Where my mom was stationed, was only a couple of blocks from the White House.  In fact, on the corner where the building is located, you can still see the White House.
My mom did work, there.  What she did, I have no idea.

She always told me and others that she had signed and agreed to never tell anyone, so she never even told me, or my siblings.  Not ever.  So we didn't know.

But, our Lord knew.

Just as we read, in Jeremiah 23:24, "Can any hide himself in secret places that I shall not see him? saith the Lord. Do not I fill heaven and earth? saith the Lord."

People on earth may not have known what my mom did as a CWAC member, during WW2.  But, our Lord did.  He saw exactly what my mom did.

After all, just as we read, He fills heaven and earth!

To me, it's wonderful that God knows everything.  Everything concerning me, you... and others.

He's not only knowledgeable.  He's in control of everything.

For this, I am thankful.  And, always will be.

Until next time...
