Thankfulness




Today I am so thankful for our soldiers and their families who serve our country. I found this blog today and my heart is so sad and thankful at the same time for this young girl, Melissa, who gave "all". It wasn't the plan she had in her heart, but she is willing to accept God's divine plan for her life. She inspires me greatly - what grace and what style she has. She is actually from the area I live in and I remember when this happened- it was in the news all over here. I remember being so thankful that he had a very strong faith. I didn't realize he had a fiancee - she is an amazing woman. I will add her to my prayer list.

After reading her blog I will hug my husband and children just a little harder today and whisper prayers of gratitude for their lives. Thank you God.

I'll head over and read this link.

I do think we must be long lost cousins - especially since you know half my family!

Wow - what a great reminder to be grateful for the sacrifice of others (both those in the military and those left at home).

A beautiful post. We can't be reminded enough to be grateful for our military and their families.

P.S. I received my first issue of Today's Christian Woman. I'm enjoying it so much! Thank you again:)

After reading this, I am even more grateful and thankful that Jason made it home safely. Many do not. Thank you for the reminder.
