THE FINAL INSPECTION

Author: Unknown
The soldier stood and faced God,
Which must always come to pass.
He hoped his shoes were shining,
Just as brightly as his brass.

"Step forward now, you soldier,
How shall I deal with you?
Have you always turned the other cheek?
To my Church have you been true?"

The soldier squared his soldiers and said,
"No, Lord, I guess I ain't.
Because those of us who carry guns,
Can't always be a saint.

I've had to work most Sundays,
And at times my talk was tough.
And sometimes I've been violent,
Because the world is awfully rough.

But, I never took a penny,
That wasn't mine to keep...
Though I worked a lot of overtime,
When the bills just got too steep.

And I never passed a cry for help,
Though at times I shook with fear.
And sometimes, God, forgive me,
I've wept unmanly tears.

I know I don't deserve a place,
Among the people here.
They never wanted me around,
Except to calm their fears.

If you've a place for me here, Lord,
It needn't be so grand.
I never expected or had too much,
But if you don't, I'll understand."

There was a silence all around the throne,
Where the saints had often trod.
As the soldier waited quietly,
For the judgement of his God.

"Step forward now, you soldier,
You've borne your burdens well.
Walk peacefully on Heaven's streets,
You've done your time in Hell."

Thanks for putting your faith out there to support our troops. Lord, I pray you would bless and uplift all of those affected by this and protect all of our soldiers and prevent those in pain or delusion from hurting themselves or others.

Our prayers go out to the fallen and the families. So many lives have and will be affected by the action of one individual.

Craig,

Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. We are in scary and sad times. I just saw a great quote though that gave me hope.

"I've read the last page of the Bible. It's all going to turn out all right." Billy Graham

Have a wonderful weekend!
