H/t beloved GiovanniWorld member LittleMissMuffin!
Here is a soldier stationed in Iraq in a big sand box. He asked his wife to send him dirt (U.S. soil), fertilizer, and some grass seed so that he can have the sweet aroma and feel the grass grow beneath his feet. When the men of the squadron have a mission that they are going on, they take turns walking through the grass and the American soil — to bring them good luck.
If you notice, he is even cutting the grass with a pair of a scissors. Sometimes we are in such a hurry that we don’t stop and think about the little things that we take for granted.
Upon receiving this, say a little prayer for our soldiers that give and give (and give up) so unselfishly for us.
Lord, hold our troops in your loving hands.
Protect them as they protect us,
Bless them and their families for the selfless acts they perform for us in our time of need.
In Jesus’ name, Amen
