Memorial Day

I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend! We certainly are because the Marine is down here with us and I can't even begin to describe how excited and thankful we are to have him home!

Memorial Day really hits home for me this year, because while my brother just got home, 9 of the young men in his company didn't make it home from this last deployment. Sitting at their memorial service last week really hit me hard. These boys are people's family. They are sons, fathers, grandsons, husbands, that are out there giving everything they have for their country. For our freedom.

So just take a moment tomorrow to remember our soldiers who've made the ultimate sacrifice. And pray for the ones still overseas. Because this war is still going on, and these soldiers are still giving everything they've got.

I'm glad YOUR Marine came home!

Our church is probably a bit different than yours. Our 1st meeting is the whole congregation, women and children for the 1st hour. Then, we split up by gender for the 2nd hour and then by agethe 3rd hour. Right now, we're only staying the 1st hour and the nursery is not open...therefore, Jude has to come in with us. For the other meetings, the nursery is open...but, for young ones like's optional. I'll probably keep him with me.

Glad to hear from you!
