Christmas Soldiers

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

    My Father was in World War 2, he was shot in Germany, all they had back then was the Red Cross. Thank God, that so many of the soldiers can communiate with their families and loved ones. May God Bless each and every man and woman who are willing to put their life on the line.

    Thank you, Lorna, for reminding us that others are away from their families or remembering a time when they were. I sent Kenneth an ornament that held a picture of his boys inside that played a tune, while in Iraq. It was center of his tree this year for Christmas, a gentle reminder of when they were apart.

    So beautiful, Lorna. Thank you for this post. Merry Christmas to all of our Soldiers. I’m so thankful that Trey is here, at home, with his family. I pray the Lord covers those abroad.
