Hello everyone—I hope you had a great week. I have something very important to tell you but first, just a couple of announcements. They’ll be quick, I promise.
1. Last week we had a first place winner who won all three books of the Major’s “Army Brat” series. Congratulations to Kathy! There are still two more chances to win—second and third place. Please see my Blog from last week for details.
This book is a compilation of stories contributed by 22 veterans, each sharing their own personal journey in the US Military. These veterans represent all branches of our military. The Major has his story about when he was a Private going through Airborne school in 1980. Check it out! Proceeds from books sales go back into Veteran programs.
Now, what I was going to tell you that is very important to me. When I was twelve, I accepted the way, the truth, and the life as being Jesus Christ, the Son of God. I mean, I played the church game while growing up and was even involved with the youth program at our church. But…there was something missing—like the song by U2, “I still haven’t found what I’m looking for.”
When my dad was in Iraq, I found myself in my mother’s “Prayer Room” more often than not. During one of those times, I asked the Father to forgive me of my sins through the blood of Jesus who died for you and me. Then I felt an overwhelming peace that—that penetrated deep into my heart. You might say that God is my Heart & Soul! I found a verse in the Bible I think is really cool:
My heart has heard you say, “Come and talk with me.” And my heart responds, “Lord, I am coming.”
See—cool, right? I think so anyway. I just had to share that with you. By the way, I still try hard to do the right thing and I have to work on my anger issues some…but nobody is perfect, right? Hee hee, ha ha.
So, until next week—bah
