Prayers for a soldier...
« on: February 22, 2005, 11:11:42 PM »
I just found out that a guy I grew up with in my town of Elmsford died today from a gun shot wound he received late yesterday while serving in Iraq. He was 20 years old. Please keep Michael in your prayers... :(

Prayers
Now where were we? Oh yeah - the important thing was I had an onion on my belt, which was the style at the time. They didn’t have white onions because of the war. The only thing you could get was those big yellow ones...

Eternal memory in a place of peace.  Lord, have mercy.
"If you are going to serve the Lord, be prepared for times when you will be put to the test. Be sincere and determined. Keep calm when trouble comes. Stay with the Lord; never abandon Him and you will be prosperous at the end of your days. Accept whatever happens to you. Even if you suffer humiliation, be patient. Gold is tested by fire and human character is tested in the furnace of humiliation. Trust the Lord and He will help you. Walk straight in His ways and put your hope in Him. " Sir 2:1-6
