  • How to thank a veteran

    Gratitude. When we thank someone it is important not to thank them merely with our words or a temporary response. The most significant act of gratitude is one that demonstrates significant life change. So as we consider the sacrifices and selflessness of our veterans and their families, may we live our lives with a purpose greater than ourselves. May we live our lives more fervently for our Creator Jesus.

    Mark 12:30 “And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.”
