Prayers for Heros

I haven't had a welcome home ceremony in over 6 months. I didn't realize how much I missed it.

As you think about your day and offer up your prayers, remember the Soldiers and their families that sacrifice for us each and every day so that we can pray and enjoy our freedoms! Today there are almost 200 families praising God for their Hero's safe return. And as they do that, 2,000 101st Soldiers are getting ready to say goodbye for another tour.

Remember to Thank a Soldier!

I am Blessed. Blessed with 2 kids that have love and compassion in their hearts. And they both continue to amaze me. Sunday we were in church. I had to operate the video screen because the eldest was away. As I was heading back, I took our offering out of my pocket and was trying to hand it to Hunter. He, for some reason, was pulling all his money out of his pocket. (I just saw a bunch of ones.) Not thinking anything of it, I went to the back and sat down. When the ushers were called forward, Hunter went up to help. As they were looking for 1 additional usher, Hunter pulled all his Valentine's money ($9) from his grandma out of his pocket and tossed it in the plate. Afterwards, when he was walking back, he reached into his other pocket and found 2 more quarters and put them in there also. We were stunned.

So after church, the 2 of us were heading out of town and I asked him why he put all his money in there, because it would have been ok to just put a few dollars in there. I was not prepared for the answer. He said, "The church needs it more." How many kids put ALL THEIR MONEY in the church offering plate?! Because the church needs it more? Thank you God for these 2 gems. They may test my patience from time to time, but they melt my heart all the time!

As we were heading out of town, we noticed the clouds and how cool they looked, so I found a spot to pull over for a picture. He said they looked "animated". Animated?! I think they looked like angel clouds. The picture does not do it justice, but the edges were rolled and they reminded me of heaven and the "picture" I have in my head of Angels standing on the clouds looking down at us. I just thanked God for all my blessings.

It's been an emotional day. I had a dream last night and I can't talk about it without crying. We went to church this morning...we laughed, we cried and we rejoiced. When was the last time you went to church and laughed, cried and rejoiced all in the same service? I THANK GOD we were sent here. I love our last church...I miss all the lovely people there, but with technology (facebook), we can still keep up...and go visit from time to time. But we BELONG here. I don't know how to describe it any other way.

The boys went on a camping trip last night to watch the meteor shower...we watched it, too, from the park...but that's another story! :) But the things I heard this morning...about my boys and about all the other boys...(it's not a "boy" group, they just didn't have any girls on this trip)...but the SPIRITUAL things I heard about, just sent chills down my spine. I wish I had gone, if not just for a few hours, but I think if I had, they might not have had the same experience.

So, thanks Grandpa's...yes, the 's is correct, because they were both in my dream (amazing!), I will continue to pray and know that "It's gonna be alright."

Still working on thoughts...

Woke up today thinking about all the wonderful pictures I've taken in the past year...
so much I've learned in the last year...
mostly by trial/error...
but how much in life isn't trial and error?

Took this last summer at sunset...
this is undoctored and all I did was crop it a little.
Pretty wild, huh...
Now, see what a few words does to this picture...
Thanks Dad for suggesting it!!
