Our Troops During Holiday Season:-)

Please watch or listen Sweet Friends…………..

Camouflage And Christmas Lights by Rodney Carrington

Another Year has come and gone,
And I’m still here holdin’ on,
To this rifle and a picture of my kids,
They’re sayin’ its a holiday,
Sure as hell don’t feel that way,
I don’t think Jesus meant for it to be like this.

A paper star on a plastic tree
Cotton snow in a manger scene
We do the best we can to make it feel like home.
Turkey dinner on paper plates
Sargent bows his head to pray
Boombox playin’ silent night
Camouflage and Christmas Lights.

There probably up on the hill by now
Bundled up and sleddin’ down
Catchin’ snowflakes on the edge of their tongues
Standin’ up at the top would be
The prettiest girl I’ve ever seen
Whispering a quiet prayer for all of us.

Some say I’m a hero
But I’m just a Dad
Who’s trying to protect
The most precious thing I have
Someday I’ll be home again
And our world will be right
But for tonight

Thank God it’s a silent night
Camouflage and Christmas Lights.

We know they serve our country best
Their loyalty— a proven test
Every sweet American soldier’s soul
Bears the burden of this honorable goal.

Please keep them in your prayers this holiday season.

It was once said:

If you really want to make a friend, go to someone’s house and eat with him… the people who give you their food give you their heart.

Soooooooooo, who’s comin to dinner?

    Loved the video. Bless them all.

    Now I’m hungry for all the food that you’ve posted. Very hungry.

    Have a fabulous day Angel. Big hugs. ♥♥♥

    yeeeears ago – when we first moved here in September — and had no family to celebrate Thanksgiving- our Jewish friends invited us to their home- They are true friends still–I trust them as I trust few others–
    Your wonderful food photos remind me of them–
    Thank you Angel–

    Our men and women in uniform give up so much to do their job. Oftentimes, they do it in unpleasant places. God bless each and every one of them and may they return home just as they were when they departed for duty, and may God watch over them and protect them. I also love your food tributes as well Angel! They always remind me of home and of family.

    May you and your readers experience a truly wonderful Christmas!

  4. Mustang says:

    I couldn’t say it any better than William just did. The holidays are all about God and family and I know that there is no better present for a military person than to be able to hold his family close to him or her, feel their warmth, and feel their love. Happy Holidays to everyone. God bless you Angel, and all of those you love.

    Touching video, and it reminds us of the sacrifices made every moment – let us not take any of it for granted. Merry Christmas and Happy Chanukkah my friend! Now on to that dessert!

  6. Always On Watch says:

    Some people really do appreciate our troops and our veterans. See this. If possible, also see Decorate A Vet’s Facebook page.

  7. Bunkerville says:

    A great post and a reminder of the tremendous sacrifice of so many. The pics didn’t disappoint!

    There is a time and a season for everything under the sun, or in this case the Son.

    “Soooooooooo, who’s comin to dinner?”

    ME ME ME ME ME

  10. Joe says:

    very NICE SONG, MUCH BETTER THAN HIS OTHER ONE ABOUT A BODY PART. HEH HEH HEH

  11. Findalis says:

    Our men and women in uniform deserve better than what Congress and Obama give them. I understand that in combat zones they will not have fresh meals but MRI’s instead.

    God Bless Our Troops!

  12. DragonLady says:

    I spent my daughter’s first Christmas deployed in Kuwait. That gave me a much deeper appreciation for our deployed troops during the whole holiday season.

    Those desserts… *drooling*

    :)

    Outstanding Angel! My blood sugar spiked just reading it! lol
