I want to share with you this report from USA Today. I have officiated many funerals for Veterans of World War II and from those that served in the Vietnam War. My Dad, Wally Moede served in WW II as a SGT. in the U.S. Marines and my friend Roger Carey was killed in the Vietnam War. Roger served in the Marines. UPDATED: Remembering Roger G. Carey of Windom, Minnesota, Killed In Vietnam Many Americans do not know the history of our Country, and those that gave all. Have you ever read about Americas greatest generation? My Dad and Mom were part of that generation and handed down all the values they had to me and my brothers and sister. Greatest Generation
Do all the good you can,
by all the means you can,
in all the ways you can,

at all the times you can,
to all the people you can,
as long as ever you can.
From John Wesley
My prayer for you today is that you will take time to pray and reflect on what you are doing with your life to make the world a better place. What is your calling from God?
