This month, we're taking you back to some of our most popular Miracle Monday submissions from the past. Today's post was submitted by Sister Mary Ann Heaps and originally published on May 12, 2014. Enjoy!
I want to honor the Lord for protecting my late husband Rusty Heaps in battle during his service with the U.S. Navy during WWII.
May is a good month for me to tell this story – May 1 is “May Day” (an international stress signal), May 8 is VE Day, May 16 was Rusty’s birthdate, May 17 is Armed Forces Day and May 30 is the traditional Memorial Day.
When Rusty was in training, he left the U.S. on a large seafaring vessel that looked something like the one pictured in this article.
