Want to encourage someone!?!?

Folks, this is a holiday weekend. A holiday meant to remember those who have sacrificed, or are sacrificing, for our wonderful country. This country has lots of issues...but I wouldn't want to live anywhere else!

We have lots of military families in our church. One is a family of six. The mother is Kristin; the father is Jeremy. He is currently serving in Iraq, while Kristin is at home with the children who she homeschools. Jeremy is sacrificing a year with his family to serve this nation. Jeremy posted his first blog entry today.

If you have a few minutes, go leave Jeremy, and maybe Kristin, a few encouraging words.

Have a great weekend!
Happy Memorial Day!

Thanks for the reminder to thank those serving for us! It's not always the FIRST thing we think to do, for those sacrificing their all for our well being.

Thanks Tina....I'll run right over and check him out.

I hope you are enjoying your Memorial Day weekend.

Thank you. I needed the encouragment the first day I read this. There are only a couple more "difficult" days before Jeremy comes home in 2 1/2 months.
