We got news...

As you know, Daddy has been waiting for word on whether he would have to deploy, and would be gone from us for Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years and Valentine's Day.

Daddy got some news, and he told us



By the grace of God, his orders have changed, and our family will be together for the holidays. We thank each and every one of you for your support, positive thoughts and especially for your generosity of spirit in lifting us up in your prayers. We are so very grateful for this community, and for the many blessings we receive from Him, both directly and those given through the grace of love and of friendship.

I share with all of you,especially my friends who are suffering their own worries at this moment,  two songs that have brought me comfort, and our promise that our family will continue to lift each and every one of you in our prayers.






HIS POV:  
Things can change as quick as a flash of lightning in the service. I wish my comrades in arms a safe and sound deployment. I have been given the blessing of experiencing the holidays in full effect with my family and that is truly the blessing to many many prayers and we thank you all so very much for giving us so much needed support.Thank you all for your steadfast support of Lady June and myself during what has been a interesting year!

  5. That's great news! My husband's not in the service, but he has spent a few holidays in the hospital due to an ongoing health issue. It's always a relief when we can all be together for the holidays.
