Memorial Day Weekend

Hi Friends~

I only have a few minutes to write.  My son came home from Shepperd Air Force Base yesterday and we are pulling together a party for 15 people today.  It's mostly family but my siblings, ex-husband, and Josh's friends have either never been here, or it has been a very long time.  He just told me he is going to be stationed somewhere in the UK for 2 years.  Sounds fun--from what I have read in my friends blogs...but 2 years!  A long time for a Mum. 

Anyway, even though we are having a party today, I wanted to ask each of you to please take time over this weekend to pray for the families that had have their family members and friends give their life for their country.  It is a very tough rode, as I have learned from a friend who went through it.  Please pray that no matter how many years have passed...that the Lord will comfort them every day, but especially on this day (Monday in the US) as they see cars filled with fun-seeking beach going people on the day that their most precious are supposed to be honored...especially this day. 

Have a Safe, Prayerful, and Loving Memorial Day Weekend!

He IS Able!

  1. Dearest Traci, enjoy your wonderful brave son and do thank him for his service. God bless him and all our troops.

    Wishing you a blessed Memorial Day weekend.

    Love, Caterina

  2. I'm soooo glad that your son was able to come home for the holiday weekend - and, enjoy seeing all of his family before he has to go to the UK!
    I have the utmost respect for and so appreciate all of our military personnel for the dedication and sacrifice they (and their families) make on our behalf. Any time I see a serviceman (or veteran) I make sure I go up to them and thank them for their service. It's the least I feel I can do to let them know we are aware of their sacrifice, and are aware of the fact that our freedom is NOT free!
    May God bless and keep your son safe . . . and, please thank him for his commitment/service. He's appreciated.


Thank you so much for leaving your thoughts, ideas,prayer requests and comments! We love to read them all! And, if you had a prayer request, the Prayer Team will begin praying for your needs today. God Bless!
