With Honor: Giving Thanks
I am thankful for the service men and women
who put their lives on the line to fight for our country.
May God protect all the service members of the military branches near and aboard.
May God bless their families and comfort them.
O LORD, You are the portion of my inheritance and my cup;
You maintain my lot.
The lines have fallen to me in peasant places;
Yes, I have a good inheritance.
NKJV Psalm 16:5-6
The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life,
And he who wins souls is wise.
NKJV Proverbs 11:30
