(My buddy Reggie, sent this to me in an email and I wanted to pass it on. WC )
As I reflect on this photograph, I see once again that not all the brave leave the “home of the brave” to enter battle; some are required now to be the brave of the home
It is said a picture is worth a thousand words but it leaves me speechless and tears in my eyes.
We have a long list of good friends whose husbands are deploying to Iraq next month. One of the wives sent me this. We feel compelled to send it on. Your prayers are deeply appreciated. These guys deserve our love, our hugs and most powerfully, our prayers.
I understand that life in Iraq is very difficult to bear right now. Our troops need our prayers for strength, endurance and safety.
“Lord, hold our troops in your loving hands. Protect them as they protect us. Bless them and their families for the selfless acts they perform for us in our time of need… Amen.”
Please stop for a moment and say a prayer for our troops around the world.
Of all the gifts you could give a US Soldier, Sailor, Airman, or Marine deployed in harm’s way, prayer is the very best!!!
