DSCF4897Today, I took my family by NHC Healthcare to see a dear family friend, Mr. Jack Custer.  Jack is a 93 year old, Purple Heart Recipent who fought in World War II.  As we gathered around Mr. Jack, I asked him to tell my children about the war and about being wounded.  Mr. Jack told us about being in Germany and being shot twice.  He took his hand and pointed below his neck and then to his shoulder as he told us where the bullets pierced his body.  He then said, “I remember waking up somewhere in France but I don’t recall what city I was in.  I have tried to forget those things.”  He told us that he was there for 2 months recovering before he could be transported back home.  Mr. Jack fought beside “American Hero” Audie Murphy and is a distant descendant of the great General George Custer.  After our conversation, I did my best to put into words the debt of gratitude we owe Mr. Jack and all the other veterans who gave everything they could for the cause of freedom.  Their sacrifice is what secured the freedoms we enjoy today.  They are the reason we can worship, pray, and bear arms without fear of governmental oppression.  I proceeded to explain to my children that the war has changed but the battle for our freedom continues.  Our country has turned it’s back on God and has lost it’s moral direction.  We must continue our fight because our freedom depends on it.  We must stand firm on our moral convictions and pray for our country daily.  We must unify together and turn back the tide of this moral sewage we have migrated towards.  If we do this, God will hear us and come to our aid.  If we don’t, the judgment of God will continue to fall heavily on our nation.

“If My people who are called by my name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.”  2 Chronicles 7:14
