Take home a solider

I saw this on Facebook. I am not sure where it came from or who done this. But I do like this and think it is a good idea. This picture has a suit case full of these army men. I remember as a child playing these army men. They are not expensive army men either.

There is a picture that says …

Please take a solider home and place it somewhere that will remind you to pray for our men and women serving our country!

Take home a solider

We do need to remember to pray for our men and women who are fighting for our country to continue to give us the freedoms we do have. You might not like the reason they are fighting, but they are there to help make sure we stay free in this country. We need to pray for them daily for their safety and thanking them for their service. Some men and women don’t get to make it home! We honor these men and women on Memorial Day. Then those that do get to make it home, we honor on Veterans Day.

I always say thank you to a veteran I see wearing a veteran hat. Not to mention, I let them know I am thankful for their service to our country. I encourage you to do the same. I even do this to firemen and police officers. There are many other ways to show military appreciation too!

Below is that image.

Pray for our Soldiers Box

This would be a great idea to put up at your church, your local ministry or just anywhere.

A great way to help us remember to pray for those who is away from their family, friends, church and more to protect our country to help keep our freedom. Maybe you put this Take home a solider idea at your church, business or ministry office.

Take home a solider looks very easy to make. Just take an old suitcase or the like. You can make your own sign on what to do. Those army men usually are rather cheap too.

I am sure if you could find firemen and policemen like these army men, you could incorporate also for praying for our firemen, firewomen, policemen and policewomen too.

If anyone knows who this belongs to, please let me know so I can give proper credit where credit is due.
