An Australian Army Soldier stationed in Iraq with his tiny ‘plot’ of grass in a big sand box in front of his tent.
He asked his wife to send him dirt (Aussie soil), fertiliser, and some grass seed so that he can have the sweet aroma, and feel the grass grow beneath his feet. If you notice, he is even cutting the grass with a pair of a scissors.
When the men of the squadron have a mission that they are going on, they take turns walking through the grass and the Aussie soil…
For many it reminds them of their Loved ones back home.
Sometimes we are in such a hurry that we don’t stop and think about the little things that we take for granted. Let’s say a Heartfelt Prayer remembering all the sacrifices soldiers make even just with the little things of everyday life.
It may be their Job but it is for us that they are going without, we need their willingness to be there regardless of the cost.
We may not agree with War but without it people will die through injustice and without Mercy, Dictatorship will rob them of freedom, yes we also remember to pray for our enemies. Matthew 5:43- 48.
Thanks in advance for your Prayers we will also be praying for your Soldiers.
Christian Love Always in our Unity in Christ Jesus.
