They’re still there. Let’s show them we care!

In the midst of the pandemic and civil unrest in our nation today,  let us not forget those who are protecting our freedoms as they serve. Let us pause daily to remember them, their families, their sacrifices; asking God to keep them safe.

He will cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you will find refuge; His faithfulness will be your shield and rampart  – Psalm 91:4
