Today we welcomed my son home after a 1-year deployment to eastern Afghanistan. I am thanking and praising God today for returning my son home safe to his wife and children! REJOICE! I am overflowing with joy!
There are no words to describe how I am feeling! Relieved, blessed, thankful, & joyous.
Thank you all for your support during his deployment. I could not have gotten it through it without all of you!
For everyone that is also welcoming their soldier home, let us remember that for each soldier that returns home from deployment, another soldier takes their place, and another family is missing their loved one.
Here is a heartfelt prayer I found to pray:
God of all goodness,
Look with love on those who wait for the safe return of their loved ones who serve in the armed forces of their country. In faith and hope, we turn to You for comfort. Grant that we may trust in Your mercy and send an angel to sustain us as we await their safe return.We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
Stay Army Mom Strong, we are all in this together. God Bless.
