We have a few chaplains in our church and one of those chaplains and his wife have graciously invited us to join them at some of the homecoming ceremonies for the soldiers of the 101st Airborne Division at Fort Campbell returning home from their deployment to Iraq. I never tire of watching these reunions!
Having lived around military all my life I have as many friends in the military as I do civilians. I love our soldiers and their families. Some of the most loyal and caring people you will ever meet or have in your church are military connected. Grace Community Church is loaded with military families. I wouldn’t want it any other way! I firmly believe that our soldiers do what they do so that I can do what I do in freedom. I’m so thankful to live in a country where I can freely share my faith with others and I don’t take that freedom for granted. I know it comes with a huge cost. We admire greatly the sacrifices our soldiers and their families make on our behalf.
God bless America and our troops and their families. I honor, respect, and love each of you! Thank you for serving on my family’s behalf. It is so good to be welcoming you home again!
