WHEN A SOLDIER COMES HOME
When a soldier comes home, he finds it hard....
...to listen to his son whine about being bored.
...to be tolerant of people who complain about the hassle of getting ready for work.
...to be understanding when a co-worker complains about a bad night's sleep.
....to keep from laughing when anxious parents say they're afraid to send their kids off to summer camp.
....to keep from ridiculing someone who complains about hot weather.
....to control his frustration when a colleague gripes about his coffee being cold.
....to be civil to people who complain about their jobs.
....to just walk away when someone says they only get two weeks of vacation a year.
....to be forgiving when someone says how hard it is to have a new baby in the house.
The only thing harder than being a Soldier...
Is loving one.
Lord, I pray that you protect and bless those who have chosen to serve our country near and far. Also for those who serve in other countries. I pray that you protect and bless their loved ones while they are carrying out their military duties. Thank you, soldiers, whatever branch you may represent, for serving near and far, for the sacrifices that you make. God bless you!
Have a blessed day ~
