Soldiers: Gentle Reminder

June 16, 2009

Please pray for our soldiers who give of their lives.

WHEN A SOLDIER COMES HOME

01

When a soldier comes home, he finds it hard …

02

… to listen to his son whine about being bored.

03

… to keep a straight face when people complain about potholes.

04

… to be tolerant of people who complain about the hassle of getting ready for work.

05

… to be understanding when a co-worker complains about a bad night’s sleep.

06

… to be silent when people pray to God for a new car.

07

… to control his panic when his wife tells him he needs to drive slower.

08

… to be compassionate when a businessman expresses a fear of flying.

09

… to keep from laughing when anxious parents say they’re afraid to send their kids off to summer camp.

10

… to keep from ridiculing someone who complains about hot weather.

11

… to control his frustration when a colleague gripes about his coffee being cold.

12

… to remain calm when his daughter complains about having to walk the dog.

13

… to be civil to people who complain about their jobs.

14

… to just walk away when someone says they only get two weeks of vacation a year.

15

… to be forgiving when someone says how hard it is to have a new baby in the house.

The only thing harder than being a Soldier …

16

Is loving one.
