>> The Lord works in mysterious ways!!!

>> Please read the whole thing,,, You'll love it

>> I am reminded that "God Works in Mysterious Ways "

>> Tampons (A TRUE STORY)
>> >> Tampons to the rescue in Iraq !! Don't worry, it's a good story, and worth reading. It's even humorous in parts. It's from the mother of a Marine
in Iraq . >> My son told me how wonderful the care packages we had sent them
from the ladies auxiliary were and wanted me to tell everyone thank you.
>> He said that one guy we'll call Marine X, got a female care package and everyone was giving him a hard time. My son said, 'Marine X got some really nice smelling lotion and everyone really likes it, so every time he goes to sleep they steal it from him.' I told my son I was really sorry about the mistake, and if he wanted I would send Marine X another package. He told me not
to worry about Marine X because every time I send something to him, he shares it
with Marine X.

>> He said when my husband and I sent the last care package, Marine
X came over to his cot picked up the box, started fishing through it, and said,
'What'd we get this time?'

>> But my son said they had the most fun with Marine X's package. He
said he wasn't sure who it was supposed to go to, but the panties were size 20,
and he said one of the guys got on top of the Humvee and jumped off with the
panties over his head and yelled, 'Look at me, I'm an Airborne Ranger!!!!'

>> One of the guys attached the panties to an antenna and it blew in
the wind like a windsock. He said it entertained them for quite awhile. Then of
course.......they had those tampons. When he brought this up, my imagination
just went running, but he continued..

>> My son said they had to go on a mission and Marine X wanted the
Chap-Stick and lotion for the trip. He grabbed a bunch of the items from his
care package and got in the Humvee. As luck would have it he grabbed the tampons
too, and my son said everyone was teasing him about 'not forgetting his feminine
hygiene products.'

>> He said things went well for a while, then the convoy was
ambushed and a Marine was shot.. He said the wound was pretty clean, but it was
deep. He said they were administering first aid but couldn't get the bleeding to
slow down, and someone said, 'Hey! Use Marine X's tampons!' My son said they put
the tampon in the wound. At this point my son profoundly told Me, 'Mom, did you
know that tampons expand?' ('Well....yeah!')

>> They successfully slowed the bleeding until the guy got better
medical attention. When they went to check on him later, the surgeon told them,
'You guys saved his life. If you hadn't stopped that bleeding he would have bled
to death .' My Son said, 'Mom, the tampons sent by the Marine Moms by mistake
saved a Marine's life.'

>> 0A
>> At this point I asked him, 'Well, what did you do with the rest
of the tampons?'

>> He said, 'Oh, we divided them up and we all have them in our flak
jackets, and I kept two for our first aid kit.'

>> I am absolutely amazed by the ingenuity of our Marines. I can't
believe that something that started out as a mistake then turned into a joke,
ended up saving someone's life. My sister said she doesn't believe in mistakes.
She believes God had a plan all along. She believes that 'female care package'
was sent to Marine X to save our Marine..

>> Either way, our efforts have boosted the morale of many Marines,
provided much needed items for our troops, AND saved the life of a Marine! God
bless every one of you for your efforts and hard work, and God bless our
Marines, Army, Navy, Air Force and all our military service personnel.


>> I'm not breaking this one. If I get it a 1000 times, I'll forward
it a 1000 times!

>> Let us pray... Prayer chain for our Military... Don't break it!

>> Please send this on after a short prayer. Prayer for our
soldiers. Don't break it!

>> Prayer: 'Lord, hold our troops in your loving hands. Protect them
as they protect us.Bless them and their families for the selfless acts they
perform for us in our time of need. Amen.'

>> Prayer Request: When you receive this, please stop for a moment
and say a prayer for our troops around the world.

>> There is nothing attached. Just send this to people in your
address book. Do not let it stop with you. Of all the gifts you could give a
Marine, Soldier, Sailor, Airman, & others deployed in harm's way, prayer is the
very best one.


>> This is the day The Lord has made, let us be glad and rejoice in
it.. GOD Bless..

Me: Jesus, almost six years and they still don't have adequate first-aid kits for soldiers in Iraq?

Wingnuts: Isn't it wondrous how Jesus magically delivered tampons to protect our troops!

Shouldn't the military, not these Military Moms, be the ones responsible for providing female troops with feminine products?

I have been praising the Lord for giving us tampons for a long time. Now I have another reason to praise his name and the makers of tampons. Amen.

Agree w/first post: why don't the wingnuts question why their children are being sent into BATTLE without proper equipment?? I don't get why THIS fact - lack of proper equipment - is an opening for praising and thanking Jesus...

Plus, one would think that, with all of the effen money allocated to the military, they could, like, spend some of on the troops (rather than on kick-backs to obscenely rich $&^%s).

My "prayer": Hey "Hey-soos", my man, how 'bout makin' them military types & fanatics get their acts together and provide our children with adequate equipment?? Cuz, then, "Hey-soos," I will be thankin' you!

Dear God,
Please send our troops home before Obama's ridiculous 2011 deadline. Washington won't do it for reasons only known to you. We need a miracle.
And thanks for convincing my wife to marry someone on the opposite side of the political spectrum.

Heh. All the prayers in the world couldn't overcome the 7% more people who voted for Satan's candidate in 2008.

Prayer: the way to feel like you're helping without actually doing anything.
