Spark of Hope #43 – Faithful Service

Spark of Hope #43 – Memorial Day is an opportunity to show gratitude for our fallen heroes. It’s a day to embrace their service and sacrifice, and their lessons in our lives. When Your Dad Goes to War is dedicated to a man I had the privilege of knowing for a very brief, yet brilliant time. Willis deployed nine times in faithful service to our nation. At just 47, his life ended after battling an aggressive rare illness. I witnessed incredible humility and fortitude from him and his family during that time. It’s as if their lessons became inscribed on my heart…as a beautiful reminder of faithful service to country and to one another. Even in the midst of loss, they celebrated life. Our heroes service and sacrifice make Huge Outcomes Possible Everyday — it’s a lesson of Hope’s eternal power!

Hope is like a spark; if conditions are right, it can spread like wildfire. Hope feeds the soul, ignites passion and inspires  others. Tucked inside each of us is a child that says: Never forget to dream, play and imagine. HOPE is the extraordinary spark that says Huge Outcomes are Possible Everyday.
