Dear Veterans,

Dear Veterans,

Thank you. Thank you for everything. Thank you for making sacrifices I can’t imagine for the sake of my freedom. Thank you for protecting me and my family even on days that I take you for granted and forget all that you do. Tears come to my eyes every time I watch soldier homecoming videos, but then I tend to forget about it and go on my merry way just a few minutes later. Over the past year, I have had multiple friends go to military training and in just a small way I have started to glimpse the sacrifices that so many of you and your families make every day. I am never going to have the words to say thank you. It is never going to seem truly sincere since I don’t understand. I haven’t been there or seen what you’ve seen, but thank you. I am praying for you every day. A lot of days I am tempted to be fearful for our country, and also for all our armed forces still serving, but today God is comforting me with the words with Deuteronomy 3:22 “You shall not fear them, for it is the Lord your God who fights for you.” (ESV) Thank you for everything, you all deserve to be recognized today and every day. Happy Veterans’ Day!
