j'AOTHER Or THE j'AOMTH
Like little Bennie over the radio, I want
to say "Hello” to everyone and hope everybody
is feeling fine this bright September morning.
We speak of some months as the month of brides,
1 y \ of melons, of vacations. Now, they are past and
\ I\ the lovely month of September is here with the
birds still singing,'the butterflies flitting
from flower to flower, the morning glories of red, white, and blue to welcome each
new day, and the katydids to sing us to sleep when night comes*
It's potato digging, molassas making, and cotton picking time in the south.
They all bring a thrill to the homo .folk, especially cotton picking time, v;hich
means that more savings stamps and bonds v;ill be bought to help Uncle Sam make
thing's better for all of us,
Yes, you are in the service of our country and we, along v/ith you, want
victory and peace . , , we must have righteousness to exalt our nation. We mothers
pray that you will witness for God whore ever you may go so that His gospel, the
story of His love, may be carried to all nations. Fight with the sword of the
Spirit as well as with guns and bombs. We are proud of you and are'happy because
of what you are doing for us. Remember Mother’s God, Mother's faith. Mother*s church,
and Mother's love for you. Live a clean life so you will be ready for peace when it
The thrill of our life now is when you get a furlough home to be with us a few
da;y^s. The greatest thrill will come to us vjhen you come home again to stay. We know
you are doing your best and we're trusting you will bo true to the cause for v/hich
you are fighting. V/e enjoy your letters in the "Hoover Rail;" but we are much hap
pier when we hear directly fi*om you often. I hope all of you are good to v;rite home
to the folic left to carry on there.
Vfc love you lots and are anxious about your welfare. Our thoughts and prayers
are ever with you, but, boys, there is one, a friend, who sticketh closer than a
brother who is over near and will help in time of need if you onl;^’' trust Hin, .You
can depend on Him at all times for strength to go through this war. V/hen the way
seems dark and rough, '’Talk it all over with Jesus ~ He will make it right,"
Be good and remember our best wishes are with you.
May God bless and keep you safe and bring you home.
With kindest regards.
