Day 0023: God With Us

No comments


2018 MAR 02- Matthew 1:23

Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and they shall call his name Immanuel” (which means, God with us).  (ESV)


Today, I listened to a song that was released back in 1984 by Huey Lewis and the News, Walking on a Thin Line. I am in late November of 1984 in my musical journey. t think this is a perfect song on the eve of my trip to DC.

Sometimes in my bed at night
I curse the dark and I pray for light
And sometimes, the light’s no consolation
Blinded by a memory
Afraid of what it might do to me
And the tears and the sweat only mock my desperation

Don’t you know me I’m the boy next door
The one you find so easy to ignore
Is that what I was fighting for?

Walking on a thin line
Straight off the front line
Labeled as freaks, loose on the streets of the city
Walking on a thin line
Angry all the time
Take a look at my face, see what it’s doing to me

The generation before me that fought in Vietnam are my heroes. Most of those young men went and followed the orders given and then came back to a Nation that thought less of them.

I appreciate our troops for what they do and have done to protect our freedoms.

An old Vietnam Vet told me once that the ones who deserve the metals are the ones that are still there.

In my soul, I believe that during that conflict God was with our soldiers. As God is with us.
