My younger daughter has a ministry where she sends birthday cards to soldiers who are serving overseas, especially in Iraq and Afghanistan. She does this through a Christian lady who heads up a group of people who have a heart for this. Since our pastor writes gospel tracts, we thought we would get him to do one for this purpose, so he's writing one that Neesie can include with her cards. Well, I've been helping him look for a graphic for this military tract and ran across several that I liked. This one was my favorite. Look at the dog tags. How does that one in particular make you feel? (click on the picture if it's hard for you to read what it says.) Wow. How seriously we need to be keeping before the Lord on this matter.
Anyway, this post is a reminder, though I know most of you have not forgotten our troops. Let's continue to pray for their safety and protection, of course, but also that the words on this one dog tag might someday be true again.
