Veteran


So today is Veteran's Day. WOW - what a way to remember all the people who have sacrificed their lives for our country or have served our country or are STILL serving our country. I've been looking at pictures & videos of battles, & people in military uniform & names on walls of people who lost their lives for something they so whole heartedly believed in. These men & women put aside everything to dedicate themselves to a belief that our country is worth is - & it is a noble & worthy cause.

But especially when I saw the pictures of the Vietnam Veternas Memorial with all the names - it made me think.....how many of us are dedicated to our Lord & Savior like that? How many of us are willing to dedicate ourselves completely to a cause that is above any other cause? How many of us risk anything & everything to further God's Kingdom here on earth? How many of us are willing to die to ourselves for Him?

Today - I am thankful for Veterans of all kinds. Thankful for the military & anyone who serves to keep America the most wonderful place to live. And I'm thankful for the Spiritual Veterans - people who have sacrificed to keep the Word of God moving & alive!

May God Bless America!

  5. What a beautiful post and tribute not only to our fallen soldiers but to our Heavenly Father as well. I know for a fact many of the men and women who have fallen for our country also did it because they believed they would be going to be with God.
