So thanks Dad, Paw Paw, Papa Joe, Uncle Sammy, Uncle Gordon, Caleb - and all the many other family & friends who have or are still serving this wonderful nation!!!
As I think about my own life this morning - I wonder how these men felt as they traveled to new & different nations. I'm sure there was an appreciation for the USA - and probably a little bit of "this is not my home. I'll serve my time here - and then return to where I belong."
I've often wondered that about my own life. Where exactly do I belong? I'm learning a little more every day what God wants me to see & do in this new life. But the one thing that keeps coming to the surface is - I'm supposed to serve here. Complete my assignment here - but this too is not my home!
I must say - Heaven is so much sweeter now and I can't wait to go home! Just give me Jesus!
