Do you know how proud we are of Will?
Just got this updated photo of Will, as you can see he got there safely. and is busy learning how to do what is expected of him!! Please continue to pray for all of our military men and women everywhere.
Being raised in a military family causes me to be even more proud, and I know if Will's great grandfather were alive that he would be even more proud than us..... My father was a soldier through and through, and he taught us to love and respect our country and our military, and to know the principals to which this country was founded. Freedom of worship,...God first, loyalty to the  Constitution to whom he was sworn to support, defend.
Thanks for indulging me!!

I Thessalonians 1:2~We give thanks to God always for you all, making mention of you in our prayers.

You have an amazing legacy in your family and you are justifiably proud. I certainly am praying for Will and all of our military and consider it a great privilege to do so. They are the ones who are laying it on the line for their country and countrymen. God bless each and every one and bring them home safely.

I will continue to pray. I do bet your Dad would be so proud.
That is a very nice picture thank you for sharing.

I am so thankful for the service and sacrifice of brave young men like Will.... and the sacrifice of families like yours...

I know you are proud of Will, and, though I have never met him, I am proud of him too! I am keeping him (and you all) held up in prayers, too.

Thanks for sharing that photo with all of us, so we can see a face to go along with all of the prayers.

Have a wonderful weekend, dear bloggy -friend.....

You have every right to be proud of Will and the choice he has made to serve his country. I will keep him in my prayers.

This makes me appreciate our military even more if that's possible. I just spent time earlier today sharing with Becky and Tami about how much I adore our soldiers. I do, and knowing your grandson is in the service compounds that appreciation. You have every right to be proud and to shout it from the rooftops. No wonder I like you so much, Sue.

Beam away, my friend!

And I'm going to go check out more info on this. I must have missed where he was going to be deployed to... must be in a former post.

What a GREAT picture! You have every right to be proud! I have him listed on my prayer card that I keep in my Bible so I won't forget....Have a wonderful week-end Sue! HUGS

Janette@Janette's Sage April 2, 2011 at 10:49 AM  

This just thrilled me...I have had him on my heart and in my prayers and will continue to do so. What a precious gift your family has given to our country.
Great, great picture.

So glad to know that Will arrived safe and sound. You certainly have good reason to be proud of him.
I keep him in my prayers.

I know it made your heart happy to get this photo. I will continue to pray for him and all of our service men.Seeing the unrest in our world on the news is just a reminder of how much we owe our military.

Hi Sue,
What would we do without e-mail to keep in touch with our loved ones far away?
Will looks good and tell me I'm proud of him, too!
I'm thankful for all those that are keeping us safe and sacrificing for us.

Rebecca April 3, 2011 at 6:56 AM  

I "feel" your pride, Sue! What a great picture.

Deanna April 3, 2011 at 6:16 PM

Thank you for sharing!

So thankful for the brave men and woman like your Will and the service they provide to our country! Praying God will use Will in the lives of those he comes in contact with and for his safety!

I will not forsake your Will. I'm so very proud of our soldiers and I feel exactly as your dad did about God and country and the Constitution.

Sharing thoughts from my heart with you,

The farmer and his friends
Thank you so much for coming by, please come and visit anytime.

~Welcome home~

This blog is dedicated to my dear family who live many miles away, and to you dear ladies , who have a heart for keeping the home fires burning. You, who love and cherish your family, and have a desire to create a home that says "Welcome, you are loved and cared for."

My desire is that when you leave that you will be encouraged and know that you too are loved.


The phrase "There's no place like home", is so true.

No matter where I go, I always love turning the key and hearing that clicking sound in the lock of our back door . Even if I have only gone shopping, I am so happy to be home.

Did you know that every home has its own scent, the first thing I do is sniff the air, and I offer a quiet prayer of thankfulness, and for safety.

My decorating style is my own, I decorate with the colors and treasures that are me. One of the things that I have enjoyed about blogging is the difference in how we all view the world, and our homes. Just like our Creator made each of us to be unique, we create our own unique styles and colors in our own homes. I have learned so much from you and enjoyed your homes so much, and have learned so much about you from your homes...

I truly believe that God wants us to have a safe haven to come home too, a place we can claim as our own,... just like us, homes come in all shapes and sizes if love is there it is our home.., if our things are there it is our home. When we add our own personal touches, it is our home

Home is a place we can go to when the storms of life are raging. I often listen to the wind and rain when it is coming down hard and am reminded of the safety of our sheltering home. It is the one place that we control what and who comes in, (well,most of the time. lol)

Sometimes late at night, when I am unable to sleep I will get up and as I am walking across the room, I hear the floor creek beneath my feet, I go, sit, and listen to other sounds that my home makes, a pop here and there in the wall, it is like the wall is talking to me. A home not only has its own scent, but it also has its own sound. I truly believe that a home takes on its own personality, US!!

So why this blog?....
I wanted a place that I could come, talk about, and share of how my day was spent here at the "farmhouse", and about the things that I do to make it a "home". Making a house a home is a lifetime endever, and I might add a joy, as our lives are always changing.
