James


Tomorrow my wonderful son in law will leave on his deployment to Iraq. Please keep him and my daughter in your prayers. This will be a long separation for them and she will be alone in a strange place while he serves his country in a dangerous foreign land. Pray God's keeping and blessing on them both and may the time fly. He is truly a second son to us and we are so blessed to have him in our family! We love you James!
A couple of weeks ago we traveled to Jacksonville, FL to see them before his deployment. My son and his girlfriend and my daughter and granddaughter joined us for a great family time together. Here are some pics from the weekend.

Thanks so much for sharing the photos of your beautiful family! Jada is growing fast and is the loveliest little girl --second only to Olivia! ;)

I have added James and Bek to my prayer list. I am very grateful for his service to our country.

First of all...We send all our thanks and gratitude to James and those like him who serve in the military and we all hold him up in prayer.
Second...your family is beautiful, each and every one of you.

I will definitely pray for James. My cousin served a tour of duty in Iraq. After he came home he retired, after 20 years of service. He's actually back in Iraq now as a civilian, working to help rebuild their country.

Thank you James for your service to our Country. Will be praying for them both. I know first hand how hard that separation really is...my Tomer was in the Air force and gone for a year during the Viet Nam War.
