I recently talked with a friend of mine who is struggling with life’s daily grind. I asked him, how his relationship was with Christ. It was no surprise to find out he was not spending time with God.

Sure is great to be a part of a country with the freedom we enjoy.  Starting from the Revolutionary war to the war on Terror, hundreds of thousands of men and women have given their lives for our freedom.  That is no small sacrifice.  It is everything.  I plan to have friends over for fun and fellowship.  Without the sacrifices of our men and women in uniform, civilian and military, state and federal, we would not be able to do this.  I thank God for everyone who has served this country.  Our hats are off to YOU!
