"A soldier doesn't fight because he hates what is in front of him. A soldier fights because he loves what he left behind." - unknown

"God is our refuge and strength. He will protect us and make us strong" (ps 46:1). For those who will fly today, for those who are there now, and for those who will soon join the fight, Lord, shield them from all evil, strengthen their hearts, and bring them home safely.

I would love to know what posts and bases this has reached. I can't track that so it would be great too for spouses to see who else is reading where they are. Please leave your duty station in the comments (you have to scroll ALL the way down to see "Leave a comment". If you aren't a military spouses I would still love to see where you are reading!
