"A soldier doesn't fight because he hates what is in front of him. A soldier fights because he loves what he left behind." - unknown

"God is our refuge and strength. He will protect us and make us strong" (ps 46:1). For those who will fly today, for those who are there now, and for those who will soon join the fight, Lord, shield them from all evil, strengthen their hearts, and bring them home safely.

Featured Blogger - A Creed and a Psalm

I have said before and I will say again that one of the greatest blessings from this blog has been connecting with other military spouses. It has been amazing to hear stories from seasoned spouses who "remember when," mothers who have found a place to better connect and, especially, new spouses who are just beginning this journey. It has been more of a blessing than I can say. So often, you guys email and it's like looking in the mirror. So often stories are similar and struggles and victories are the same. We live a very unique life - but so much of it between us overlaps. There is a comfort in that - to know that so many others feel or have felt or will feel the same way.

AB emailed me her blog and I was amazed by her story and her outlook. She has a kind heart and grace about it that is allowing her to ease into this new life. I wish I had had the same strength of mind and heart  as she does when I began this journey. It took time for me. I invite you to hop on over to her blog A Creed and a Psalm and become re-energized by her unwavering determination to thrive. Thank you, AB, for sharing with us.
