I’m not one to keep sentimental things, but there is one thing we have in our home that I’m sentimental about, and it’s not even mine…My wife’s, grandfather’s, warplane book from WWII when he was training to be a rear air gunner.  

Whenever I see, and carefully leaf through its pages, I imagine a room full of young men listening attentively full of determination…and fear. What thoughts must have run through their heads? Did they believe they’d never see their loved ones again?  Did they even think twice about giving up their lives for this cause?

I am thankful for the incredible sacrifice every person, and every family, made so that we could have the freedoms we enjoy today.

I am thankful, and concerned, that with each passing year we are a year removed from WWII. Thankful because such a war can become a distant memory. Concerned, because for coming generations that’s all it will ever be.  

On this Remembrance Day, if your family gave so we could have our freedom, thank you.

With the opportunity given to us, may we live lives that “…will always honor and please the Lord, and…produce every kind of good fruit.” Colossians 1:10

God willing, we won’t have to fight in a war in our lifetime, but we can choose to live lives worth remembering for generations to come.

Let’s pray for tomorrow’s heroes.

Whether you are able to give once, or monthly, we thank you for your unwavering support.
