Yes, well more like the Eastern Front if I think about where we live. Since Jeremy returned from Iraq and then left the Marine Corps in July it has been quiet of sorts. One son engaged, another married, a holiday away. Slowly life returns to normal. We only realize now how stressed we have been on each deployment. thank you to all supported us and Jeremy in prayer, to those who sent care packages, thank you, to those who sent sun glasses when he lost his special Aviators. You do not know how much it all means to us. So as we approach this Thanksgiving we realize how much we have to say thank you for.
If we can pray for you please let us know, but if you step back for a moment you may realize you have much to be grateful for even in the midst of trouble and hardship. It is in those times that you realize how much you are loved by people who don't know you and by those who do. You look up to God with fear and trembling...and hope always trusting, but hoping that that phone call or visit does not come so you have to dig deeper even and trust when you don't feel like trusting when the news is bad, but that is what God calls us to do. Even when the furnace lies ahead to trust him and not worry about the result.
