My grandfather fought in World War II. My dad served in Vietnam. And many more of my uncles, cousins, and other family members served in the military at one time or another (war or peace time). They Followed their hearts and Served their (our) Country.
I can’t imagine the pain they have felt, especially during the Christmas season, while they are away from their families. For those serving today, things are easier (communication wise, with e-mail and the internet) but the pain is still there.
So, it is my prayer that every soldier, those stateside and those fighting the wars, have a Blessed Christmas. I’m hoping that where ever you are, that you feel the Love of Jesus wrapping you in His arms, keeping you safe. It is my prayer that you come home, soon.
I’ve come acrros two ways to send a message of hope and love to a Soldier this Christmas. First, click the Let’s Say Thanks picture (to the right of this post, near the top of the page) and send a Soldier a Christmas card. Or second, if you know a soldier personally, click the picture below to send him or her an e-card (provided by Crosscards.com). Let’s let them know we love them and are thinking about them.
Merry Christmas Solider
Thanks for Following 2 Serve, Love, Lorna
