Today we stop to share our thanks
For your service to our land,
You gladly put on the uniform,
Took your oath and took a stand.
We are grateful for your courage,
You, who chose to sacrifice and give,
It is because of the heroes among us
That Old Glory still flies and our freedoms still live,
So today we say thank you,
And, because these simple words are not enough,
We pray you will have health and happiness
And a life full of peace and love.
I have been blessed to have served as a pastor, a chaplain and to have been involved in other ministries throughout the years. My wife Marta and I have been blessed with a wonderful family that includes our daughter, her husband and their two daughters and our son and his wife and their son. Each of them are very special to us so please keep them all in your prayers. One truth that I always try to share with people I meet is that anything God asks you to do, He will help you to do. God has your back.
