Honoring our veterans on Veterans Day

Saluting the Home Team

Today we honor those who played
the enduring game of freedom.
Proudly wearing
their helmet and the home team uniform,
they defended the goal of liberty.

The line of scrimmage kept changing...
from natural grass turf
to muddy bunkers
to sandy beaches
to rice paddies
to sun-baked deserts.
But no matter the conditions,
these veteran players
remained resolute
in keeping the opposing team from scoring.

Grass-stained and bloodied,
mentally fatigued and bone weary,
at times carted off the field in pain,
these players proved their courage
as we watched their will to win.

And on this day
we salute their service.
Grateful fans in our great nation
line the streets in every city and town
cheering as these veterans pass by
in a virtual parade.

PO BOOKS BY GREG ASIMAKOUPOULOS
Sunday Rhymes & Reasons
Published June 4, 2009

Sunday Rhymes and Reasons is a compilation of inspirational poetry by America's pastor/poet laureate, Greg Asimakoupoulos. In this, his third volume of poetry, Pastor Greg paints word pictures that portray both the struggle and fulfillment that define a life of faith. His repertoire of rhymes celebrate rite-of-passage occasions like birth, baptism, marriage and death as well as the major holidays of the church and culture. It is a volume that illustrates the poet's love of words and of popular culture. The author dips his brush into a paint box of hubris, humor and honesty.

"Gloria and I have been encouraged by word pictures from Greg's pen that have celebrated both our ministry and God's presence in our world."Bill Gaither, Gospel music composer/performer

"Gifted poet Greg Asimakoupoulos is a dear friend of our family. His poetry blesses, comforts, entertains, and provides inspiration for every season of life."Natalie Grant, singer/songwriter/recording artist
