Don't Forget Our Heroes

We met tonight to celebrate 3 birthdays--my brother-in-law Kenny's, my neice Jennifer's, and her husband, Ryan's. Actually Ryan's birthday was last week, and Jennifer's is in December. But they are leaving Monday to go to New York for more training before deployment in November. We are unsure if we will get to see them again before they ship out. Please remember to pray for them and all of our service men and women. Their's is a sacrifice we can only imagine unless we have been there. It is easy to forget that it is still going on, especially if you do not have someone over there. But don't forget! And the truth is, you DO have someone over there, whether you know them or not. Jennifer and Ryan, we love you and send you off with prayers for your protection, prayers for strength, and courage. You're our heroes!

Yes, the sacrifice is large...our nephew in law returned in September after spending nearly two years in Iraq. During his absence, his marriage fell niece has now divorced him. They were married for only four years......and he spent 31 months in active duty. It was too much. I don't know how we are going to continue this important global effort without starting the draft up again. It seems the volunteer services are paying a very high cost for our security and freedom.

God Bless them all!
