Thank you so much for putting your lives on the line for our freedom.
What a great sacrifice you are making for this country.
Thank you for giving us a gift we could never repay. We love you!


To All Our Troops wherever you are...

I asked the Lord to Bless you
as I pray for you today
to guide you and protect you
as you go along your way.

His love is always with you
His promises are true,
And when we give him all our cares
You know He will see you through.

So when the road you're traveling on
Seems difficult at best
Just remember I'm praying
and God will do the rest. Amen

Heavenly Father, we ask that You hold our troops "tightly" in Your loving Hands, keeping them from all harm, as they so selflessly protect us!!!  We thank You Lord for giving us such as these... truly You have blessed us!!! Totally cover them in Your Love and surround them in blankets of our prayers, be with their families.  Grant also an abundance of Your Wisdom along with Your Perfect Peace which surpasses all understanding! May these troops come to KNOW that they are in The Hands of the True and living God, Creator of the Heavens and Earth and ALL that is therein!!!  Jesus, please we pray, may they feel Your Touch like never before.  We also pray for our president and all of our officials, Firemen and Policemen, we pray Lord that You would grant them Your Wisdom, fill them with peace, give them strength as needed and draw each and every one into Your Arms of love!  Oh how we thank and praise You!!! In Jesus we pray. Amen.

"But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk and not faint." Isaiah 40:31

You who dwell in the shelter of
the Lord,
Who abide in His shadow for life,
Say to the Lord, "My Refuge,
My Rock in Whom I trust."

And He will raise you up on eagle's wings,
Bear you on the breath of dawn,
Make you to shine like the sun,
And hold you in the palm of His Hand.
The snare of the fowler will never capture you,
And famine will bring you no fear;
Under His Wings your refuge,
His faithfulness your shield.

And He will raise you up on eagle's wings,
Bear you on the breath of dawn,
Make you to shine like the sun,
And hold you in the palm of His Hand.
You need not fear the terror of the night,
Nor the arrow that flies by day,
Though thousands fall about you,
Near you it shall not come.

And He will raise you up on eagle's wings,
Bear you on the breath of dawn,
Make you to shine like the sun,
And hold you in the palm of His Hand.
For to His angels He's given a command,
To guard you in all of your ways,
Upon their hands they will bear you up,
Lest you dash your foot against a stone.

And He will raise you up on eagle's wings,
Bear you on the breath of dawn,
Make you to shine like the sun,
And hold you in the palm of His Hand.
And hold you in the palm of His Hand.


Words of Comfort and Hope from our God

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believes in Him will not perish, but have eternal life.  John 3:16

The Lord is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge. He is my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.  Psalm 18:2

Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.  John 14:27

If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer.  Mathew 21:22

And call upon me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you will honor me.  Psalm 50:15

The Lord is far from the wicked but He hears the prayer of the righteous.  Proverbs 15:29

With God we will gain the victory, and He will trample down our enemies.  Psalm 60:12

The Lord helps them and delivers them; He delivers them from the wicked and saves them, because they take refuge in Him.  Psalm 37:40

God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging.  Psalm 46:1-3

The Lord is my light and my salvation -- whom shall I fear?  Psalm 27:11

I have told you these things, so that in Me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.  John 16:33

And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.  Romans 8:28

For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:38-39

The name of the Lord is a strong tower; the righteous run in to and are safe.  Proverbs 18:10

Thank you dear Father in Heaven for the gift of your Holy Precious WORD! Thank you for loving us!


Bed a little lumpy... Toss and turn any... Wish the heat was higher... Maybe the a/c wasn’t on... Need a drink of water... Count your blessings, pray for them. Think of them... Protecting your freedom!

The photos below are from one of the U.S. Marine companies in Iraq. They would like to have it passed to as many people as possible, to let the folks back home know that they remember why they’re there and that they remember those who’ve been lost.

Grass - Sometimes the little things we take for granted

Here is a soldier stationed in a big sand box-Iraq. He asked his wife to send him dirt, fertilizer and some grass seeds so he can have the sweet aroma and feel the grass grow beneath his feet.  If you notice he is even cutting the grass with a pair of scissors.

Sometimes we are in such a hurry that we don't stop and think about the little things that we take for granted. Upon receiving this please say a prayer for our soldiers who give (and give up) so many things unselfishly for us.
