Here’s an oldie but goodie. Happy 4th!

Noah had his first sleepover at our house the other night. His little friend, just 6 years old, will celebrate the 4th today while his Mom serves in Iraq. She serves to protect my freedom while I complain about having to sweep the floor for the third time today. While I count the minutes until bedtime for the kids. While I dream of having a moment of peace so that I can breathe think function blog uninterrupted.

She’s in physical combat for me, and I’ve made it my own declaration to go into prayer battle for her. While her son slept sweetly on the top bunk in my boys’ room, I just cried and prayed.

I pray for his Mom’s safety. For her heart. For his heart. That he knows God’s love and that he doesn’t suffer from any emotional harm while his mom is away. I pray that everyone serving our country can come home This lump in my throat hasn’t gone away all week.

My, how I’ve seen life in a new perspective.
