One Nation Under God

One Nation Under God
“Listen to me, you who pursue righteousness and who seek the Lord:
Look to the rock from which you were cut and to the quarry from which you were hewn;look to Abraham, your father, and to Sarah, who gave you birth. When I called him he was only one man, and I blessed him and made him many. 
Isaiah 51:1-2 NIV
Hey Kids:
Last week I challenged you to investigate the service men and women in your family.
What cool pictures and stories did you find?
Did anyone fight in the Revolutionary War? Sign the Declaration of Independence?
Did anyone serve in WWII or Vietnam?
Is someone in your family currently serving in the Armed Forces?
Have you thought about writing a thank you note to those in your family who have/are serving?
I had a ggg grandfather who served in the Revolutionary War. Perhaps you did too.
They can’t read our thank you notes, but we can publish them for others to share in our gratitude for our founding fathers and those who served to preserve for us the freedom to worship and serve the God who made us one nation out of many.
I’m anxious to read your thank you notes!
