THE FINAL INSPECTION

The soldier stood and faced God,
Which must always come to pass.
He hoped his shoes were shining,
Just as brightly as his brass.

"Step forward now, you soldier,
How shall I deal with you?
Have you always turned the other cheek?
To my Church have you been true?"

The soldier squared his soldiers and said,
"No, Lord, I guess I ain't.
Because those of us who carry guns,
Can't always be a saint.

I've had to work most Sundays,
And at times my talk was tough.
And sometimes I've been violent,
Because the world is awfully rough.

But, I never took a penny,
That wasn't mine to keep...
Though I worked a lot of overtime,
When the bills just got too steep.

And I never passed a cry for help,
Though at times I shook with fear.
And sometimes, God, forgive me,
I've wept unmanly tears.

I know I don't deserve a place,
Among the people here.
They never wanted me around,
Except to calm their fears.

If you've a place for me here, Lord,
It needn't be so grand.
I never expected or had too much,
But if you don't, I'll understand."

There was a silence all around the throne,
Where the saints had often trod.
As the soldier waited quietly,
For the judgement of his God.

"Step forward now, you soldier,
You've borne your burdens well.
Walk peacefully on Heaven's streets,
You've done your time in Hell."

I'

for discussion: FIRST let me start by warning all... this is not a slam hate page... i want a scholarly approach to the discussion...
.... what Lipan Men may have worn...
is the only known picture of a lipan. Notice he has a bone breast plate and silver conchos.
the man on the right is Chevato all so know Bill Chiwat. Yes Lou diamond Phillips character chivato. The real Chevato is a Lipan. Notice what he is wearing down to his Moccasins what is also interesting is the feather in his hair.. that's a Cara-Cara feather.. Chevato is also known to be the Grandfather to the NAC.. pe**te church...
these are the different cloth worn by other men
notice what he is wearing as a mescalero
is a west apache cloths.
NOW... this is what i want to talk about... People out there are saying that the man in Picture 5 is what Lipan wear.. and go around Pow wow saying that They are traditional LIPAN apache .. But if WE (LIPANS) ARE southern plains and our neighbors like the kiowa, comanche, tonkowas all dressed in the manner in picture 1 and 2 and furthermore if in picture 3 our cousins the Jicarilla also are plains apache . than one can argue that picture 1,2 and 3 is the correct way to dress as a Lipan... and NOT picture 5..i understand 2 things ..one that Chevato ended up with the kiowa and took they way they dressed ...second picture 5 is a HOLLYWOOD depiction of a western APACHE and not all apache looked this way .. Now i have nothing against our western brothers dress.. what im saying is that its not LIPAN way... picture 1,2 and 3 ARE.... what to you thing .. let talk about it...

Marceline was assigned an Art project by her School’s Librarian to celebrate Grandparents Day this week. The Art project was to create a piece, in the style Mosaic, inspired by the children’s book, I Love You To Pieces by author Barbara Benson Keith. The book is about Grandparent Animals expressing their love for their Animal Grandchildren. When we listened to the virtual oral reading together Marceline remembered my Dad as she knows him to be described as a type of Animal. To her, he is Grandpa Thunderbird. My heart cried. The assignment was too perfect! R.I.P. Light Gray Man! I hope you are proud of my Daughter! Marceline up-cycled a piece cardboard from an Amazon Box 📦, painted it black & used it as the frame. She cut out all the mosaic pieces from construction paper & pasted them on. I assisted with glue & cutting the Thunderbird shape Photo credit: @photosbyjohnathon on Instagram.
I’m so glad to have found this page. Please direct me if needed. I’m trying to find more information on our ancestors from my grandfather. His name was Silverio Yañez and was from Los Ojuelos Tx. I did a 23andMe kit to connect with family. Some research has lead me to believe we are from the Lipan Apache Tribe. Any information on how to extend the search would be greatly appreciated. Posting a picture my grandparents and children ( mom) aunts and uncles

Hello I recently found out I am 37% Lipan Apache. My Grandpa & Great Grandpa are Lipan Apache. I want to embrace my roots.
Lipan, Texas was named after the Lipan Apaches. The Lipan Apaches hunted here before the Palo Pinto/Granbury & Stephenville/Weatherford roads intersected.
