What is a Veteran-Never Forget!

What is a Veteran

What is a Veteran and what does this mean
I’m new to the area can you explain this to me

The answer came as intently I listened
Their words made their eyes brim over and glisten

Well it’s a deep subject but allow me to try
It’s about hope and security how to diversify

God called forth a land that would require protection
So He created brave hearts, ones that would serve without objection

He brought them forth, calling them soldiers
Placing in their heart a call and a responsibility to shoulder

What would they do where would they go
Wherever their country needed to show

Freedom comes at a great cost is not without trials
They left the comfort of home trekking across the miles

While we were safe in our homes resting in our beds
They would face fear and oftentimes dread

A Veteran is someone with a special call
Where the fight they fight is for the good of all

Maybe it will help if I can spell it out for you
The bravest men and women, the Red White and Blue

V is for how Voluntarily they put their life on the line

E is for Everyday never an offer of part time

T is for Total commitment given to protect our land

E is for Everything endured by their families as they took their stand

R is for Readily serving keeping us free to enjoy this security

A is Audaciously serving with a stouthearted maturity

N is for Never, no Never could we repay
So yes we did, we set aside a very special day

That is a Veteran but this is only in part
They are brave men and women with a warriors protective heart

They are a different breed loyal and true
Specially created by God to do what they do

Because of their bravery Veterans led the way
Yes, oh yes we have set aside this special day

Today we enjoy freedom in this great nation
They didn’t tuck tail and run, but served with heartfelt dedication

This is just a glimpse of a Veteran’s heart and today and everyday we are extremely grateful
So yes, yes we did we set aside this day to say, thank you for your service, you’ve been so faithful

Saying thank you seems so small in comparison to their service. These brave men and women have fought, and even today take their watch. They deserve our respect and all of our gratitude. We owe them a debt of gratitude for all they have given us. I pray we never forget, nor fail to teach and share the price of freedom with the generations behind us. And to tell them all these brave men and women have done; the price paid for freedom by these brave men and women, and their families who served and serve along side them, on the home front, thousands of miles away.

The thrill of Victory still reverberates in the soil and in the soul of the USA 🇺🇸. It is still felt all across our land. Take a moment and listen…

I hear the heartbeat of America, can you hear it? 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

GOD BLESS AMERICA AND GOD BLESS YOU! IT IS TIME TO TAKE A STAND! Stand up for what you believe.

God called forth this nation with a plan and a purpose. Our victories were not happenstance or the will or luck of man. The USA has God’s purpose woven into our very core, Christianity is the rebar and in our DNA, AND she is not through yet. Do not think God has forgotten these brave men and women. I believe there is a special seat and an assigned section at the marriage supper for the brave men and women, alongside other leaders, those who have fought and still fight today, willing take the call to fight for justice. Without “this” freedom the good news, The Gospel of our Savior, Jesus Christ, would not be preached across the airways.

Think about what you just read. The gospel of JESUS CHRIST is preached through the airways, from the United States of America to the whole world. What an assignment, what a call.

Women especially need to look around and then fall on your knees and thank the Lord God of heaven you were born in the USA! And not use your freedom for vain purposes! Jesus Christ did more to liberate women so we could be free to serve the Living God!

Our God and Savior created liberty, in Christ we have liberty. Jesus Christ died to set us free. God loves Liberty, proving this by willingly sending His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ, who willingly laid down His life, that we may be forgiven of our sins and be set free to serve The Living God! Yes I believe Jesus will have a special section for our brave soldiers!

God saw a need and placed inside them a brave heart, a heart to protect life and liberty, and answer the call to serve, that the gospel can be preached to all the earth.

God bless you and keep you and make His face shine upon you and be gracious to you. The Lord cause His countenance to rise upon you and give you Shalom.

Until next time, thank you for listening with me. Laurette
