On The Home-Front

For some reason I find myself writing this post from the King’s palace while my fellow soldiers are still camped in the hill country of Judah. This just doesn’t sit right with me. I’m a soldier! My place is on the front lines with my men!

Although I am honored that the King seems to value my opinions about our current campaign, I’m restless and anxious to return to the open country. There is no way I can enjoy the comforts of my home while the rest of the men sleep in tents and prepare to risk their lives in battle. It’s not what a good soldier does, at least it’s not what this soldier does.

Home is a welcome sight for a soldier returning from war, as long as the war is over and won. Until combat is finished and the fight won, I belong on the battlefield! As I prepare to put my life on the line, rest assured there is no sacrifice I wouldn’t make for my God and country!


While pondering Uriah’s blog, I wondered how difficult it was being the wife of such a dedicated soldier?  Which then lead me to ponder an alternate blog for Bathsheba -what might her blog have been like before the infamous incident that made her a household name?


Once upon a time there was a young woman who graduated cum laude from university. For years she despaired of ever using her English degree. Then I gave her the direction she needed and now she writes for me - her father so heavenly.
