Remember our soldiers this Christmas!

As in freedom, today, we have celebrated the coming of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, let us not forget those who maintain this freedom for us. So many of them are away from their families. As you spend time with your family, remember those who can't be with their families! Also remember those who are going to be leaving overseas to pretect our freedoms in the coming year. For some, this will be their last Christmas with their families. 

Today, we received a phone call from David. He has been spending many long hours standing guard. He firgures he got 2 hours of sleep in the last 36 hours. In the midst of this he is really missing not being home. He has hardly any opportunity to be in contact with home. 

 Pray he and the rest of his platoon can stay alert in spite of the crazy schedule, so they don't get in trouble or make stupid mistakes becuase of being so tired.

As I said in an earlier post, I sent a letter to David. I do hope it arrived to him before Christmas!
