Reminder of my husband...

Well, these past few months have been flying by, which is great! But, it's also gotten harder and harder to have my husband away. Little things here and there remind me of him, and of course the boys remind me of him daily. Today though a song that I had never heard before brought him to mind. So, here are the lyrics...

What Soldiers Do
By Monk and Neagle

Come and walk with me, my son
I need to share my heart
Tomorrow when the morning comes
I’m headed off to war
Take care of your mother
And your little brother, too
I’m praying that I’ll be home soon
So I can be with you

I know you’re only 10 years old
I know that you’re afraid
But I need you to be brave for me
And for the family
I know it’s hard to see me cry
But put your mind at ease
God is watching over us
So we can be at peace

With all my heart
I can’t wait to tuck you in
And sing a song to you
Son, stand strong
Love is the reason I would give myself for you
‘Cause that’s what soldiers do

Remember what I taught you now
About how to be a man
Talk with God throughout the day
He will help you stand
With faith to see, hope to believe
And love for everyone
Know that I’m so proud of you
And I will always love you, son

With all my heart
I want to take you to our favorite place
And catch a fish or two
Son, stand strong
Love is the reason I would give myself for you
‘Cause that’s what soldiers do

And as I go, I want you to know if I don’t make it home
You are gonna be alright
I’m telling you, son, you’re gonna touch the sky
Don’t lose hope, just lift your eyes
We’ll be together again some day

So with all your heart
Hold on to Jesus, son
And He will lead you through
Son, stand strong
You may never go to war
But you’re a soldier, too
And when you have a son like you
Teach him to fight for what is true
‘Cause that’s what soldiers do
