A Fireman's Wife WRITTEN BY : Sheryl KnieriemenSometimes it's hard to understand what a Fireman has to gain Spending so much time at the station while his family time seems to wane. They often hold meeting after meeting, training sessions here and there; Work details and fundraisers too, tension is often felt in the air. "Lord, help us please to understand just what it's all about," And with those words He told us all beyond a shadow of a doubt; For it happened on a Saturday morn when the firemen received a call, Where a man suffered from electrocution 12,000 volts, they say in all. As I arrived, I saw him there draped lifelessly across the tower, God only Your love can give them strength in this crucial hour. While two men held him so he wouldn't fall and another man took control, They risked their own for another man's life and by God's grace they attained their goal; For it was only a matter of time till they lowered him where on a back-board he was bound, And with numerous hands he was lowered again to an Ambulance Crew on the ground. From that point on the firemen had done all they were able to do, And as I watched I couldn't help but feel the pain they too, had been through. There isn't enough training that prepares them for what life has in store, I pray Dear God You'll prepare their hearts each time they pass through the station's doors; A place where lives are being transformed for what a Fireman's called to do, Where Faith's increased and hearts made strong for the trials they must go through. And the next time they're called to duty God for meetings, training, or to save a persons property or life, Please give us Strength, Love, and the Hope it takes to be a Fireman's Wife.
