Please pray for “SillyBall”.  She went to training with SuperSoldier last year and was assigned to a post near us.  SuperSoldier brought her by when he was here last summer and she quickly became a part of the family.  She’s … Continue reading

Your Intercession Requested

I am asking you all to join me in prayer for SgtSoldierSon, MrsSgtSoldierSon and Grandbaby.  SgtSoldierSon’s unit is trying to deploy him before the baby is born.  It is a silly scenario, really, as this unit has already been in … Continue reading

Poise and Grace. And Grace.

Please pray for my friend Em, her husband, and their children.  Em’s husband has been deployed, which was expected, but he was only given a 30 minute notice to leave.  Deployment is hard.  Rushed deployment seems unbearable.  It is very … Continue reading
