We enjoyed meeting all the great folks at the Avondale Veterans’ Festival on the 14th. Lots of dedicated Bible readers out there, people who can truly appreciate the idea behind the Warriors & Watchmen Series. We did make a few sales, and had quite a few great conversations. Thank you to everyone who was there. You reminded me why I wrote the series in the first place. It’s good to know there are others out there working to prepare for the great and terrible day of the Lord.
It’s been a couple years since we lived on that side of Phoenix, and it brought back all the good memories. Living life on a farm, in a small town, with down to earth people who aren’t afraid to let everyone know what is most important to them; God.It was also good to see the support for the Veterans who fought for our freedom. Without those who are willing to risk everything they have to protect the freedom we hold dear, there would be no land of liberty. I know there are many more wars coming, some of them worth fighting. I was reminded how our military was treated in the past by those who thought the wars weren’t worth fighting. Our men and women in uniform should always have our respect. If we disagree with the wars our government fights, it should be the politicians who earn our ire, those who sit safely at home while sending the brave out to suffer and die. It is my prayer that God will always make this a land of liberty, where all can live free to worship God as they wish, and find their own path to happiness. That can never be without our men and women in uniform to protect it, both at home and abroad. If you ever hear me criticize a war, it is the policy makers I criticize, not those who stand on the front lines, whether they be Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, Police, Firemen, or Border Patrol. To them I tip my hat in thanks, wishing there was more I could do for those who come home broken in body or in spirit.
