I had a very rare and great experience this past week. I got to sit in on a conversation with an eleven year old and someone in their late eighties. The topic was World War II. As I sat and listened to them discuss the various happenings of the war and some of the circumstances, I couldn’t help but be overwhelmed by such of feeling of gratitude for all those who serve and have served in the armed forces that have defended us and protected us and have made it possible for this 5th grader as well as all citizens of the United States to feel safe and confident in our homes and churches. For myself, and I think I’m not alone in this, I often take our freedoms and safety for granted. We do not have to look very far nor listen very intently to know that it is not this way in other parts of the world. So today, with heart-felt gratitude I say thank you to Clarence Golden as well as all the others who served and are serving in the military to keep peace within our borders and in other parts of the world. Please take time to remember our military in your prayers and say thank you to as many as you can. Much love.
Always praying for you,
