I remember Daddy telling about being on guard duty in Europe during the war, and how dark and cold the nights were. He spoke of finishing his watch and thanking God to see the first light of dawn and to feel the warmth of a new day.
Daddy trusted in the Lord as a teenager, but he told me that when he was in battle, he promised the Lord if he lived, he would live for Jesus - and he did.
Psalm 130:6-7 "My soul waits for the Lord more than the watchmen for the morning; Indeed, more than the watchmen for the morning. O Israel, hope in the Lord; for with the Lord there is lovingkindness and with Him is abundant redemption."
