A little over 3 weeks and my family and I are on our way to see my brother, Stephen, graduate from Basic Training in Oklahoma! His time down there has had its challenges, but through his letters and phone calls, I've been blessed to see the many ways in which he has taken a stand of leadership for his faith in Christ while in such a secular environment. Remember to pray for all of our U.S. Military!

Am I a soldier of the cross, A follower of the Lamb?

And shall I fear to own His cause, Or blush to speak His name?
Are there no foes for me to face? Must I not stem the flood?
Is this vile world a friend to grace, To help me on to God?
Sure I must fight if I would reign; Increase my courage, Lord;
I'll bear the toil, endure the pain, Supported by Thy Word.
