I'm not overly religious - in that I don't necessarily believe that God hears you better from a church.
Do I believe in God? With every fiber of my being.
Do I belong to a church? Yes.
Do I go every week? No.
Instead, I believe that God hears your heart; your silent prayers; the thanks you don't always articulate; the blind faith that you have in him.
Just over 24 hours ago, Bagram Air Base was attacked. Though the news outlets haven't released it, I will share that one of the men is American and from my brother's company. I don't know this brave, brave man; but will forever be thankful for his service and giving his life for his country. I wish I could be there to help console his family through one of the hardest experiences of their lives. Instead, I ask God to see them through this; knowing that they must rely on him and his wisdom & love.
I thank God that it wasn't JC or any of the other men that I have come to know as my extended family.
Big hugs to all of you...
