Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Phillipians 4:8

A tribute to George...

And all of his colleagues, faithfully serving our Country today and fighting for our freedom in Iraq. I don't know George, but stumbled across his blog yesterday and found it quite interesting. It made me think a little more today about all the freedoms we have here in the USA and all the people that are paying a price for it.

I must admit, I am quite removed from it all and tend not to think about the war much. Although, when I hear all the things the media puts out about it, I am always deeply sympathetic to our President and the weight that is on his shoulders.

Today I have been praying for all of the men and women, like George, who are making such sacrifices. I have been praying for their families that have been left behind. I have been praying for the people of Iraq, that they may come to know the freedom we have here. I have been praying for myself to more thankful for the freedoms I have and to try and remember what a privilege they are.

If you know a soldier or a family, please take a moment to thank them today. If you don't know anyone, send a note to George and his companions (can find his email on his blog) or send something generic from this site.

Blessings to George, his companions and everyone else fighting for our freedom this Independence Day!!
