Time again to thank the Lord for one amazing person/place or thing that impacted my life this past week. Before I do...thanks to Shannon for the wonderful banner!
One thing I'm very thankful for is that I was able to spend some time with my sister & her two children on Sunday. We live 45 minutes apart, and our schedules keep us from being in contact as much as we'd like. H's husband, G., has been activated thru the National Guard, and is getting ready to deploy for Kuwait. He just got back from Iraq in December 2004, and was called again in April of this year. He's been out-of-state since April, & is headed overseas at the end of this month. Though R & I can't come close to filling the void in the lives of H & her children, we are blessed to be able to spend time with them, and just love on them while G.'s gone.
Thank you, Lord, for family. I praise you for the friendship that H & I share, and for the love our children have for each other. I ask you to protect G. while he is gone. Please protect H & her children as well. Lord, help my family to be faithful to them during their time of need, and minister to them however possible. Help me not take my family for granted. Thank you for the time you give us to spend together. Amen.
If you have a Fantabulous Friday to share, let me know. Feel free to use the banner, too! Let's give the Lord some SERIOUS PRAISE!
