The Ultimate G.I. Promotion
I was in the USAF twenty four years.
I have no regrets; those were educational years.
I came in as an Airman Basic then became an NCO.
Up, up, up the military ladder I did go.
I got my Degree in Education and thought teaching was cool.
Then before I knew it, I wound up in Officer Training School.
I became a Lieutenant, Captain and then a Major you see.
Then before long I earned my second college degree.
A hurricane hit in Homestead and took me to another stop.
I got out of the Air Force but my Air Force career did not stop.
After I was released, there was still another state to see.
In a short time, I became an instructor at the USAF Academy.
After my tour of duty in the Air Force my life as a GI took a huge turn.
For it was not until later in life I understood what I could not earn.
I got my biggest promotion and I did it without any degree.
I became a member of God’s Service and became a brand new me.
All those years I thought I was just a “Government Issue” another G.I.
But I was “God Issued” from the beginning of time and now I know why.
God has plans for me to prosper and go to places I cannot even fathom or see.
I know that anything the in this world will never change His love for you or for me.
So now I got the ultimate promotion into God’s Service and I cannot tell a lie.
I am living happily forever in His service, even past my last days on earth as “His G.I.”
Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, And into His courts with praise. Be thankful to Him, and bless His name.
