Girls Write Out
Thursday, May 13, 2010

This is my nephew, Scott. He left for Afghanistan on Sunday. Please pray for him.

I know many of our families are affected by the war. Too often we try to ignore what's going on across the world, but the reality is the same. We are in war.

So today I wanted to use my blog time to honor those who are serving on our behalf. "Thank you" is not enough for the sacrifices they are making, but coupled with our prayers, it can make a difference.

Do you have someone in your life who is serving our country for whom you want me to pray? List his/her name and I'll pray for them. It's a small act of service on our part that can reap eternal rewards.

To our military friends: You are NOT forgotten. We hold you in high esteem and are humbled by the depths of your sacrifice. When comforts are few and unending fears hover, know you are being lifted in prayer. Just as you are diligent in service to our country, WE will serve YOU through prayer. We will not be satisfied until you are safely home!

We call you by name before the Father:

Scott . . . .

So beautifully worded, Diann!

I don't have any family overseas, but know several who do. Thank you for your words for them.

Since I know another Scott over there, I won't use his name twice, but God knows. :) Good post to thank our troops.


And love the photo. I'm guessing those are your new eyebrows. Look good!

My nephew Adam Rhoads. Love you, buddy! Thank you for your service!

LOL! No, Ane, those are not my new eyebrows. That picture was taken in Christmas before I was hit with everything in January. :-) But I'm figuring as long as I can figure out where the eyebrows go, I can draw them in. LOL

Absolutely, Diann! Our heroes need to be reminded often that they aren't forgotten. I have several family members in the armed forces right now, though none overseas at the moment. God bless them all!

Yes, we offer hearts of gratitude and prayers of protection for all our troops. Thank you for your service and dedication!!

Praying for you, too, Diann!
