This month my son deploys once again to an area of the world that is trenched in deep turmoil, a place where people fight daily just to survive. It makes me stop and think not only how lucky we are to live in this country but that there are men and women here that are not only willing to give their lives for us but also for others around the world.
John 15:13 says, “Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends.” What about the men and women that lay down their life for a stranger? This world is full of heroes that too often go unnoticed and under appreciated.
My question today is, “Are you willing to lay down your life for what you believe?”
As for me and my house we not only thank the men and women for their service but pray for them daily that they may return safely to their loved ones.
