Pax,

Thank you for updating the prayer list with the rescue of Jessica Lynch. One of the joys of praying specifically is seeing how God answers those prayers.

Thanks--that was the only time, I think, that I ever had to edit a post for a good reason.

I am bumping and sticking this thread, due to its frequently having gotten lost in the foray of war posts and people being unable to find it.

Please pray for a friend of Icelle's in the service, from whom she has not heard in a while. Pray for his safety and for her peace of mind until he is found.

For Icelle and anyone else with a friend or loved one far from home:

For friends and loved ones

O God, your fatherly care reaches
to the uttermost parts of the earth.
Bless those whom we love, who are now separated from us.
Watch over them, and protect them
in all anxiety, danger and temptation;
and teach us and them to feel and know that you are always near,
and that we are one in you for ever;
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

My Dad sent this to me today. For healing bewteen opposites. It is pretty moving.

We in the United States have all heard the haunting song, "Taps." It's the song that gives us that lump in our throats and usually tears in our eyes.

But, do you know the story behind the song? If not, I think you will be interested to find out about its humble beginnings. Reportedly, it all began in 1862 during the Civil War when Union Army Captain Robert Ellicombe was with his men near Harrison's Landing in Virginia. The Confederate Army was on the other side of the narrow strip of land.

During the night, Captain Ellicombe heard the moans of a soldier who lay severely wounded on the field. Not knowing if it was a Union or Confederate soldier, the Captain decided to risk his life and bring the stricken man back for medical attention. Crawling on his stomach through the gunfire, the Captain reached the stricken soldier and began pulling him toward his encampment. When the Captain finally reached his own lines, he discovered it was actually a Confederate soldier, but the soldier was dead.
The Captain lit a lantern and suddenly caught his breath and went numb with shock. In the dim light, he saw the face of the soldier. It was his own son. The boy had been studying music in the South when the war broke out.
Without telling his father, the boy enlisted in the Confederate Army. The following morning, heartbroken, the father asked permission of his superiors to give his son a full military burial, despite his enemy status. His request was only partially granted. The Captain had asked if he could have a group of Army band members play a funeral dirge for his son at the funeral. The request was turned down since the soldier was a Confederate. But out of respect for the father, they did say they could give him only one musician.

The Captain chose a bugler. He asked the bugler to play a series of musical notes he had found on a piece of paper in the pocket of the dead youth's uniform. This wish was granted. The haunting melody, we now know as "Taps"
... used at military funerals was born.

The words are:

Day is done ... Gone the sun ... >From the lakes ... From the hills
From the sky ... All is well ... Safely rest .. God is nigh...Fading light ...Dims the sight ... And a star ... Gems the sky...Gleaming bright ... From afar ... Drawing nigh .. Falls the night ..Thanks and praise ... For our days ... Neath the sun .... Neath the stars... Neath the sky ... As we go ...This we know ... God is nigh...

I, too, have felt the chills while listening to "Taps" but I have never seen all the words to the song until now. I didn't even know there was more than one verse. I also never knew the story behind the song and I didn't know if you had either so I thought I'd pass it along. I now have an even deeper respect for the song than I did before.

REMEMBER THOSE LOST AND HARMED WHILE SERVING THEIR COUNTRY.
And also those presently serving in the Armed Forces..
Please send this on.
