A Long Way To Work


 Outside Jo's Diner Monday morning 

What do you see?

Maybe a happy young couple? They're outside Jo's Diner so they probably just had breakfast - maybe chatting about what's for dinner - then off to work.

Not exactly.

Captain Evan Wolf and his wife Teri were saying goodbye, he was heading to work - but - his job is with the U. S. Army in Afghanistan.  And, it will be some time before they sit down with their two small children, Holden and Sarah, to share another meal.

To many people the war in Afghanistan is nothing more than a newspaper headline or a short clip on the evening news. To Captain Wolf and Teri it touches every moment of their lives. 

So, if you would, say a prayer for the safe return of Holden and Sarah's daddy, and for all the men and women serving in our armed forces.
