I remember I didn't wait for a soldier whom I was kind of, sort of, going with when he was in Vietnam. But even if I had waited for him, don't think it would have worked. Too many differences between us.
If any of our soldiers experience a loss in a relationship while they've been gone, maybe it is just as well. Allow yourself time to grieve though. Sometimes, however, with a little forgiveness, relationships are restored. I will say special prayers for all our soldiers who are experiencing difficulties in their relationships due to their military service overseas. A depressive reaction due to a loss is a terrible disease. Like thick, day old black coffee, burnt out and scummy.

Peace, love, and prayers from us all. Stay strong!

A short recon of what’s out there that might draw your attention updated throughout the day…so check back often. This is a weekend edition so updates are as time and family permits.


Wise words for all of us who will be welcoming home those who have served in Iraq and elsewhere. I pray that we my be the listening ears that Christ calls us to be, so that we can faithfully serve those who have served so many.

Thanks for this post!

Why I Write...

  • On 22 November 05 I received orders to report to Ft Shelby, Mississippi. I have been ordered to join the 1st Brigade Combat Team from Minnesota. I will be the chaplain of the 1-125 Field Artillary Unit, which is being re-tasked as a convoy security unit. We will leave for Iraq in the spring of 2006. Here is the story of my journey.
