Day 45...

Today I sat in a room full of my heroes.

It was an off day for running, and in place of the morning run was a breakfast with the military couples at the marriage retreat. I sat around a table and listened to four military husbands share their Valentine's appreciation for their amazing wives. I chatted with a young Navy wife who is expecting her second daughter in a couple of months. I heard about various travel experiences and different deployments. Most of all, I heard about the grace and love of God and how He had worked in the lives of our troops and been faithful to them throughout all of the trials they face in serving their country and defending our freedom. And of upholding their calling in the Lord's service.

I am so unbelievably humbled. These men and women serve. They risk. They battle. They believe. And I love them for it. May God bless and keep and protect and guide you all.

I'm not an active duty service member, so I will do what I can to help them do what they've been called to do. I know that I've been called and gifted to run, so I will put that to use for them by raising funds for Military Ministry. That way, our Heavenly Father can continue to reach them with His love and truth.

Thank you, Military Ministry, for the most amazing weekend. Thank you, troops and families, for EVERYTHING you do. Thank You, God, for Your faithfulness and strength that is shown so clearly through them all.

God bless,
