The true follower of Christ will not ask, "If I embrace this truth, what will it cost me?" Rather he will say, "This is truth. God help me to walk in it, let come what may!"

Just Stay

Just Stay

A nurse took the tired, anxious serviceman to the bedside.

"Your son is here," she said to the old man.

She had to repeat the words several times before the patient's eyes opened.

Heavily sedated because of the pain of his heart attack, he dimly saw the young uniformed Marine standing outside the oxygen tent. He reached out his hand. The Marine wrapped his toughened fingers around the old man's limp ones, squeezing a message of love and encouragement.


The nurse brought a chair so that the Marine could sit beside the bed. All through the night the young Marine sat there in the poorly lighted ward, holding the old man's hand and offering him words of love and strength. Occasionally, the nurse suggested that the Marine move away and rest awhile.



He refused. Whenever the nurse came into the ward, the Marine was oblivious of her and of the night noises of the hospital - the clanking of the oxygen tank, the laughter of the night staff members exchanging greetings, the cries and moans of the other patients.



Now and then she heard him say a few gentle words. The dying man said nothing, only held tightly to his son all through the night.



Along towards dawn, the old man died. The Marine released the now lifeless hand he had been holding and went to tell the nurse. While she did what she had to do, he waited.

Finally, she went outside with the Marine and started to offer words of sympathy, but the Marine interrupted her.



"Who was that man?" he asked.

The nurse was startled, "He was your father," she answered.

"No, he wasn't," the Marine replied. "I never saw him before in my life."

"Then why didn't you say something when I took you to him?"

"I knew right away there had been a mistake,

but I also knew he needed his son, and his

son just wasn't here.


When I realized that he was too sick to tell

whether or not I was his son,

knowing how much he needed me, I stayed."

I came here tonight to find a Mr. William Grey.
His Son was Killed in Iraq today,
and I was sent to inform him.

What was this Gentleman's Name?




The Nurse with Tears in Her Eyes
Answered,
Mr. William Grey.......


The next time someone needs you ...
just be there. Stay.

Boy, Thank you Buzz. That was beautiful. I forwarded that to you from my brother and before I could go over it... you had it posted. Thank You!



"Siempre Fidelis" is the Marines Motto... or "Always Faithful" and they are. Reminded me of the verse "Well done thou Good and Faithful Servant Enter thou into the joy of thy Lord! It didn't say successful or failure servant, but FAITHFUL SERVANT which is what God wants from us all. As from every Military or Government the most important thing is loyalty and faithfulness. So it is With God's Kingdom. God Help us to Have That Kind of Faithfulness and stay the course to the End!
