Update on Aaron and Rebecca/ A double Blessing

My son Aaron is on his seven months deployment overseas right now. I receive emails from him about twice a week. I was so blessed by a line in his email this morning, I just felt the need to share!

Aaron wrote this to me this morning:

"I just got a new second class in my shop and he is a licensed pastor. he is really cool, i go to church and bible study with him. he let me borrow his bible till i get one. I'm starting in Genesis and working my way back".

I can't even begin to describe how much this email blessed my heart. When we raise our children we can only pray that they will follow Christ when they are out of our home and on their own. I am blessed!

Home for the Holiday!

My daughter Rebecca is coming home for Thanksgiving. We just booked her flight! Woohoo! I am so excited! I haven't seen Becca since two weeks after my surgery. I just need to see my girl! I can't wait to give her a real live hug! I love hugs!!I am a Blessed Mama.

I had my baby girl on my mind when my husband and I went to Aldis grocery shopping yesterday. I was so excited about her coming I bought a turkey for our Thanksgiving dinner. LOL!! I can't believe my husband let me buy it. Needless to say, once I figured out that Thanksgiving is over a month and a half away. My husband and I decided that maybe we should cook that turkey now and buy another one next month. I don't know what I was a thinking!

I'd better run I have lots to do! I need to decorate my house for Thanksgiving.

PTL!! Our God Reigns! I am a blessed and happy woman!

That is a great email. We used to hold services on the submarine while we were at sea and they had Bibles they would loan out to anyone who didn't have one. I recently bought a new one but the print is so small I can't read it. :)

I am so Thankful God is Blessing you and carrying you.
My Blessings too.
Plus I got to see the boys today and get hugs.

Lori, I sure am glad for your good news! I know you have been missing Rebecca a very lot.

Aaron's account reminds me of Proverbs 22:6, "Train up a child in the way he should go, And even when he is old he will not depart from it."

Finally, I don't have much to say about that turkey. I am not a big turkey eater but I will eat turkey sandwiches and leftovers for a bit. Especially if there is left over cornbread dressing to go with it.

Guess? Mrs. Jim bought a turkey after we started restocking our refrigerator. I have no idea what she will do with it, neither does she.
