Good morning Col Burroughs and Posse. Another RED Friday but according to the current administration more of our folks may be coming home.
Maturity. We're not seeing much of that on display lately. And that's a large part of the reason we are dealing with the sorts of situations we seem to see on the news daily. The ability to think things through and judge the impact on others is part of maturity. Knowing how to discuss rather than argue, how to walk away when the conversation isn't productive is another maturity skill. Taking responsibility for your choices and actions...maturity! What do you feel is an important part of maturity?

I hope your spiritual maturity equals or exceeds your emotional maturity. I expect your spiritual maturity equals or exceeds your physical age. I expect you are aware of the relationship between maturity and love. While children may love, they tend to love childishly. No doubt you are mature enough to love selflessly. ‘When I was a child, I spoke like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I gave up childish ways.’ [1 Corinthians 13:11 ESV] my sister-in-Christ Lt Col Charlie Brown.

I pray for a sufficient increase of the fruit of the Spirit goodness, faithfulness, self-control and selfless love for each of YOUR adopted sons and daughters dear LORD. I am thankful LORD that YOU prepare each of us to not only deal with what will occur but to help others prosper. You designed each of us learn and share by demonstration; Biblical love and spiritual maturity. 'Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.' [1 Corinthians 13:4-7 ESV]
I lift parents, guardians, grandparents, children and grandchildren to YOU dear LORD. YOU design each child to learn best – some through seeing, others through hearing, others by touching and handling and most by a combination. I pray for discernment and sufficient love and kindness for each parent, guardian, or grandparent responsible for each child. ‘Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old, he will not depart from it.’ [Proverbs 22:6 ESV]
I lift each so-called mentally retarded, autistic, and other handicapped child; those suffering from PTSD, psychiatric diseases and/or disorders; the addicted to drugs and other ailments to YOU dear LORD. I pray that YOU protect each preborn child who has been labeled autistic or retarded from induced abortion in all its forms. I pray that YOU bless each individual who has been diagnosed with PTSD and/or other mental afflictions with HOPE in YOU. ‘For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will hear you. You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart.’ [Jeremiah 29:11-13 ESV]
I pray that you and your family members sleep well Friday night and will awake refreshed and healthy on Saturday morning.
By the power and authority of the Name above all names, Jesus the Christ.

SPC Mark Huddleston - Oh, if some could only follow that advice brother... what wonderful world this would be...

“Today’s topic can be very controversial, so please join in professionally today. The message today is about ‘maturity’ and how it affects our lives, communications, leadership, and relationships. There are some that show great amounts of maturity and there are those that still to this day act with immaturity. Sometimes the apple doesn’t fall too far from the tree when it comes to leadership. If leaders are immature, then those who follow or are part of a team pick up some very bad habits along the way. That leads to me this quote for today…

‘Maturity is not when we start speaking big things… it is when we start understanding small things.’ – Unknown Author

I my quote about leadership today may you follow some sound advice and remember that is only an opinion; may your mind, body, and soul be opened to grace, goodness, peace, forgiveness, and a continued bountiful life of purpose; and keep your family safe, secure, happy, and healthy. Most Warriors have a great deal of maturity that they picked up along the way from their military service. Not all, but most do — what side of the fence are you on?” — COL (Ret) Mikel Burroughs

Great subject about maturity and how invisible disabilities and wounds affect it and behavior this Saturday evening with Warriors for Life (WFL) Online Peer Support – there should be some interesting interaction among the group, so join us for — "How Does PTSD and Other Invisible Disabilities Change Behavior!"

I would agree with that PO2 (Join to see) and sometimes it never hurts to look in the mirror to see who has shown up brother...
