Today I wanted to take a moment to honor all the soldiers - those who have gone on to heaven and those who are still fighting for our freedom every day.
I read about a man who faithfully followed his leader today in my One Year Bible... as I read it, I thought about how this was probably the heart of every fallen soldier.
2 Samuel 15:21 (ESV)
But Ittai answered the king,
"As the Lord lives, wherever my lord the king shall be,
whether for death or for life, there also will your servant be."
What a statement! On this day, the Sunday before Memorial Day - John would always sing this song in church as he honored all branches of the military.
Today - take time to thank a soldier!
