Get a Kleenex



I can't listen to this song without crying. It makes me so thankful for the soldiers that are fighting to keep us safe and free. My heart goes out to the families that have lost loved ones in this war.

Matt with his son

****************************************

Our cousin Matt is due to come home in the next couple of months. This is his second time to serve over there. He has been gone for well over a year. Please pray for his safety as his wife and son anxiously wait for him to come home.

I will be praying for his safe return... when you talk to him please tell him "Thank You." from my family. We are so thankful to the men and women who protect our freedom and help those who are less fortunate around the world.
God Bless America and may America bless God.

I do love that song. I cried and cried the first time I saw it. I'm so very grateful, from the bottom of my heart, to every soldier who risks their life for my freedom. I'm just in awe of someone who would do that.

That song tears my up every time I hear it. We've lost so many young men in our area and I think about their families.
May God protect your cousin Matt and bring him home safely.

I can't imagine what families go through with having someone over in Iraq...I know i could not do it. I will pray that he makes it home safely to his family and friends, it's all we can hope for and for an early return!
