Continued blessings and prayers... here is a great song by Mark Schultz that I think you may like (or any mother who has a child serving). www.godtube.com
I heard my son's voice today, the first time in almost eight months. He has safely returned from deployment to his duty station in North Carolina. He is a Sgt. in the Marine Corps. Over the last almost eight years he has been deployed a few times and stationed far from home. Thank you, Father, for keeping him safe and bringing him home once again. Amen
God Bless him Lauren. My youngest is in the marines but not deployed. Thanksgiving is a wonderful description.
Rejoicing with you.
