    During my many years in the military I was blessed to have got to know many brave men and women who loved their families, friends and their country. I'd like to share with you one of these men who I knew personally, his name was Marco Miller. Marco was a brilliant young soldier who was a family man, entrepreneur, and dedicated American who was called to serve alongside many of us in Iraq, beginning in the summer of 2006. 

    Like everyone else training up for our deployment, he accepted the risks of potential death in war, but down in our hearts we truly felt we would all come back home to our loved ones eventually. Not so for dear Marco. While sitting at the very same checkpoint I had sat myself several times previously, a barrage of incoming mortar rounds landed near my friend and his time on earth ended that very day. 

    Our unit was shaken as we mourned the loss of our fellow soldier, but our mission continued on. Heroes are plentiful in a war zone and Marco was one of them, as he laid his life down SO WE CAN LIVE OURS. 

    Please remember Marco and the hundreds of thousands of other brave souls who gave up their lives for our freedoms, on this Memorial Day.

     

    As Reverend Billy Graham put it "Even though the sacrifices of our war dead have been great, yet the greatest sacrifice of all time was made by a man on a cross who died not only physically but spiritually that men might live. We have neglected Him too long! We have rejected His plan for peace and as a result, we have fought, bled and died for centuries."

     

    Today as we grill out, picnic and enjoy the freedoms provided us by the blood of others let us REMEMBER, and never forget! Remember Marco, and the many Gold Star families who live on daily without their loved ones.

     

    Love yall,

    Danny Luke

    Today we are taught that between the ages of twelve to eighteen is a state of limbo. This stage in life is know as adolescence. It is seen as a time when young people can have fun with no consequences. The Bible tells us differently. A young adult is considered to be between the ages of twelve and around thirty. This means when you turned twelve you became a young man or woman. Paul wrote in 1 Corinthians 13:11,

    “When I was a child, I spoke like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I gave up childish ways.”

     

    Too often young people want to hang on to their childish ways. Just like Paul gave up his childish ways many of us need to do the same. It is time for young men and women of God to stand up and make a difference. Take some time think areas of your life in which you are still ‘childish’. When we identify areas of weakness it becomes easier to work towards improving our behavior and growing in our faith.

    We have been into this pandemic a few months now, it has caused much sickness and death.  Even through all of this pain and suffering the Psalmist tells us in

    Psalms 46:1-3     1-God is our refuge and strength, a very help in trouble. 2-Therefore we will not fear though the earth gives way. Though the mountains be moved into the heart of the sea, 3-though it's waters roaring and foam, though the mountains tremble at it's swelling.

     

    If we put our faith and trust in Him it doesn't matter what happens, the earth can give way and the mountains can crumble into the sea, there is no reason for us to be worried about any of this.

     

    Several years ago after I was saved I developed a motto for myself ...

    "Every day I get up is a good day and the day I don't will be even better"

     

    I pray that you have a relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ and have peace knowing that God is in control and everything will be OK
