A young soldier, First Lt. Dan Chanski US Army, is on a brief leave from his post in Afghanistan. He made it in time to be present for the birth of his son, Jordon Joseph. His days of holding his wife and first child are numbered before he takes the long flight back into a very different world. Dan is my niece, Melissa’s husband and our families are very proud of his commitment of service to our nation.
Today we remember the fallen, honor those who serve with our thanks and our prayers for peace.
1 Timothy 2:1-3 I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone— 2 for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. 3 This is good, and pleases God our Savior, 4 who wants all men to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth.
