Happy Veteran's Day! I just got back from the parade with my kids. I found it difficult at times to hold back my tears as I saw and honored the men and women who drove by who had done such a service for our country. I am truly thankful to our amazing Lord for the country that He has allowed me to live in. Our government may not be perfect, but at the same time it has a lot to commend it. Our freedoms did not come easily or peacefully and I truly want to express my gratitude for those who strive and have striven to protect this land. I pray we use our freemdoms and prosperity to further the fame of the name of Jesus Christ in this world. One day there will be a perfect "government" - when our Lord Jesus reigns visibly over all of creation. Until that day we are called to occupy until He comes or calls us home.
Below is a short documentary from the History Channel on the story behind the date we use to honor our veterans, November 11.
Thank you veterans.
