Do you ever wonder how things work in Heaven? Will we all stand in line to receive our rewards and crowns? Or will they all be wrapped up nice and neat and placed on our bunk just like our badges and tee shirts are when we first get to summer camp?
If we have to stand in line, do you get to pick who you stand next to? I mean, I try real hard to do lots of things well, but there are some men and women whose dedication and commitment put me to shame. I’d feel real unworthy standing next to them.
We are losing our World War II veterans to the tune of almost one thousand each day. These heroes who endured so much, yet demanded so little, act as if their selflessness was no big deal. Each one that passes takes with him a legacy of commitment that is uncommon in my generation. They seldom talk about their experiences, and act as if the sacrifices they made for others was no big deal.
