It was quiet that day, the guns and the mortars, and land mines for some reason hadn't been heard. The young soldier knew it was Sunday, the holiest day of the week. As he was sitting there, he got out an old deck of cards and laid them out across his bunk. Just then an army sergeant came in and said , “Why aren't you with the rest of the platoon?” The soldier replied, “I thought I would stay behind and spend some time with the Lord.”

The sergeant said, “Looks to me like you're going to play cards.” The soldier said, “No, sir. You see, since we are not allowed to have spiritual books in this country, I've decided to talk to the Lord by studying this deck of cards.” The sergeant asked in disbelief, “How will you do that?”

"You see the AceAce, Sergeant? It reminds me that there is only one Godonly one God

When I count the dots on all the cards, I come up with 365 total, one for every day of the year

Don’t be so hard on yourself. You’ve born to learn all about who you are. So enjoy the experience. There are a total of 52 cards in a deck; each is a week - 52 weeks in a year.

The four suits represent the four Yugas: Krita,Treta, Dwapara and Kali.

Each suit has thirteen cards – there are exactly thirteen weeks in a quarter.

So when I want to talk to God and thank Him, I just pull out this old deck of cards and they remind me of all that I have to be thankful for.

The sergeant just stood there. After a minute, with tears in his eyes and pain in his heart, he said, "Soldier, can I borrow that deck of cards?"

Please let this be a reminder and take time to pray for all of our soldiers who are being sent away, putting their lives on the line fighting.
