The Final Inspection Via My Mother

THE FINAL INSPECTION
 
The soldier stood and faced God
Which must always come to pass.
He hoped his shoes were shining,
Just as brightly as his brass.
 
Step forward now, you soldier,
How shall I deal with you ?
Have you always turned the other cheek ?
To My Church have you been true?’
 
The soldier squared his shoulders and said,
‘No, Lord, I guess I ain’t.
Because those of us who carry guns,
Can’t always be a saint.
 

I’ve had to work most Sundays,
And at times my talk was tough.
And sometimes I’ve been violent,
Because the world is awfully rough.

But, I never took a penny,
That wasn’t mine to keep…
Though I worked a lot of overtime,
When the bills got just too steep.

And I never passed a cry for help,
Though at times I shook with fear.
And sometimes, God, forgive me,
I’ve wept unmanly tears.

I know I don’t deserve a place,
Among the people here.
They never wanted me around,
Except to calm their fears.

If you’ve a place for me here, Lord,
It needn’t be so grand.
I never expected or had too much,
But if you don’t, I’ll understand.

There was a silence all around the throne,
Where the saints had often trod.
As the soldier waited quietly,
For the judgment of his God.

‘Step forward now, you soldier,
You’ve borne your burdens well.
Walk peacefully on Heaven‘s streets,
You’ve done your time in Hell.’

Thinking of all the
Soldiers

It’s the Military, not the reporter who has given us the freedom of the press. It’s the Military, not the poet, who has given us the freedom of speech. It’s the Military, not the politicians that ensures our right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. It’s the Military who salutes the flag, who serves beneath the flag, and whose coffin is draped by the flag.If you care to offer the smallest token of recognition and appreciation for the military, please pass this on and pray for our men and women who have served and are currently serving our country and pray for those who have given the ultimate sacrifice for freedom

Priceless – An E-Mail From My Nephew

My nephew, the Army Ranger, sent me this e-mail and it was so funny that I just had to share it.  I’m still laughing…

Someone stuck this sticker on the hand drier
unit in the restroom at a Kmart.
 
 

My Friday Thoughts – WWII Veterans

  

I am sick today so I will be doing this short post and I have an update from IFCJ that I will put on here for you but that will be all.  Please say a prayer for me.  I don’t know if it is a virus, infection or MS but I am miserable and my head hurts so bad I can hardly stand it.

My father is a veteran of WWII and my next elder brother sent this to me last night.  Please take a moment to click on this link and watch the video.  It will only take 2 short minutes of your time to honor the men and women who served our nation during this war.

A grateful salute to our dwindling WWII veterans.They are trying to get 50,000 views before Memorial Day.  Kindly forward so more can view it.
You need to view the whole thing to be counted, it’s only 2 min long.

Peace be with you,
