Life can at times feel as if fighting battle after battle. The gentleman who wore this uniform, the photographer’s father, was a tail-gunner in World War Two. He knew something about fighting. He also may have known something about fear. Fear is a terrible motivator, and has no place on the road of an authentic life. When we are genuine and live honestly with ourselves and those with whom we are doing life, fear really has no place for together we may embrace our truths and do our best to live well.
The battle of all battles was won ages ago. Stance of victory in my spirit gives utter confidence that every other battle may be grimaced. I gaze with hope and utter assurance that one day every battle ever fought will fade in light of ultimate victory de facto. The victory of which I speak is outside of time: it has happened, it will happen, it is happening. Do you feel the churning in your soul?
