Honoring Our Veterans

Thank God for our troops! In honor of Veteran’s Day, I would like to recognize and thank the men and women who have served or currently serve in the United States military. We owe our freedom to these brave soldiers who have sacrificed so much to defend this great nation. John 15:13 says, “Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends,” and that’s what I believe our troops do every day—risk their lives for you and for me.

Please take a moment to read the powerful poem above (click to enlarge), and let us and commit to keeping the men and women in the service, as well as our veterans, in our prayers daily. May God’s mighty hand protect and bless them and their families .

AMEN! Thank you so much for recognizing this incredibly important day. I very much enjoyed the service at Shepherd this morning and only wish more people would have come!!! I feel lucky that I have not had to endure the hardship of our veterans - but I truly thank God for them. I also GREATLY admire the spouses of our soldiers that remain commited and dedicated in marriage at such incredible times! I can't imagine what they must endure. So, to all veterans AND FAMILIES - Happy Veteran's Day and God Bless!!!
