Today some members from my church paired with the Armor of Light ministry to put on a family event day at the Marine base here. We served a grilled lunch, had inflatable games, pony rides, live music, face painting, and an Easter egg hunt. Most of this particular battalion had already been deployed last month so many that attended today were families left behind. It was a wonderful opportunity to serve those who are sacrificing to serve and protect our country. This is a difficult time for their families, so it was a blessing for me to be involved in putting on an event for them to have some fun together. Personally, I didn't get an opportunity to share with any of them in word, but seeing their faces gives me more to pray for, that our actions and countenance of our faces would be emblazoned in their mind, not because of us but because of Who we represent: Jesus Christ. May His name be glorified in all we say and do. Thank you to those who have served or are currently serving our country, sacrificing yourselves to protect our freedom. I pray that you all would be able to experience the greatest freedom that comes through Jesus Christ...freedom from sin and death.

Numbers 11:1 "Now when the people complained, it displeased the LORD; for the LORD heard it, and His anger was aroused."

Pretty self-explanatory. Why should we complain when we have so much to be thankful for. When we complain, we are saying that we are not satisfied with the way the Lord is providing for us and guiding us, thinking we could do better or that we deserve better. Looking back over my life, I know that God's ways are perfect. He has blessed me abundantly and I have NOTHING to complain about. Blessed be His name.
