Sunday Reflection 6-21-09

Having received the latest newsletter from Cat Moy, Executive Director of Move America Forward, that has become first and foremost, on my mind for this Sunday.  It goes like this:

We can’t Forget American Father’s in Iraq and Afghanistan

While we are enjoying our families during this Father’s Day, sharing time with our children, we have close to 100,000 father’s who are in Iraq and Afghanistan without the joy and pleasure of being home.  They are lonely as they heroically do their duty of protecting America by defeating the terrorist threat in the Middle East.

Move America Forward is trying to send care packages of goodies that our military men and women want.  We are sending their favorite Oreo cookies, jelly beans, Gatorade, premium beef jerky and coffee.  In addition, small comfort items that are sometimes hard to come by, like lip balm, baby wipes, deodorant and bug repellent.

Won’t you honor a father away in Iraq or Afghanistan by sponsoring a care package today?  Click on the Move America Forward icon to go arrange to send a package to a troop.  It is so easy to do.

I was going to post some scripture here, but I think this reflects so much of what “serving is about”. After all, the American serviceman and woman risks life and limb to insure our freedom and Christ died to insure our salvation. We owe them both much.

  4. I just loved the photos on the newsletter so I stole it. The is nothing sweeter on earth than seeing young one with their Daddies. :-) Move America Forward became one of my favorites when they joined forces with Debbie Lee and Deborah Johns, and several other awesome people to take on Code Pink when they were attacking the USMC recruiting station in San Berkeley, CA., they are awesome.
