God Bless Our Troops!

Tomorrow is Veteran’s Day and we honor all of the men and women who have served in our country to protect our freedom. May God bless all of you! We pay special tribute to those who have given their lives in fighting for us and to their families who have suffered their loss. Thank you!

Let us not forget our troops who are fighting for us now, many of them are in very dangerous situations. I have a grandson who is fighting in Afghanistan now. This is his third war-zone tour, serving in Iraq two times. God has protected him and, I believe, will continue to give him coverage. I thank God everyday for his mercies! We pray for all of our troops and military leaders. God bless them all!

God Bless Our Troops

My prayers are said each and every night
For all those who are out of sight.
They, I am sure, are lonely and scared
Hoping that by morning their life has been spared.

We all must not guess whether right or wrong,
We must not judge the weak or the strong.
They are fighting for us, to be able to say
The things we feel, as we live each day.

It's a hardship for many, family and friends,
Tears of sorrow, many hearts to mend.
We can attack those that sent them there
Or we can stand together, make it easier to bear.

Our young heroes show they are proud,
But here we are, screaming far too loud,
’Get them out, bring them home, no good can be had
By staying there and fighting, for all that we HAVE.’

’It’s a waste of time, those enemies have shown
The endless days and nights of battle, fatalities have grown.’
Many of those who sit and openly condemn
The bravery and commitment of our women and men.

How can you not think of them, and what they do?
Do you ever wonder what they’re thinking, of me and you?
It's easy for you to sit there and judge
You're here comfortable and happy, not living in fear.

Your days come and go, you live happy and free
So why not get down on just one knee
Thank our troops, be proud of what they do
They give their lives, for me and you.

I pray each night that our LORD holds them near
To guide them, protect them, and take away their fear.
Let's never forget the sacrifice that is being made,
Please honor our troops, and let our THANKFULNESS never fade.
