Here We Go....Again

Many of you know my daughter returned from her deployment in Afghanistan this past year and this momma was finally able to breathe.....
I mean really breathe.
I am talking about deep breaths that exhaled with joy and gladness.

As a military mom, I am extremely proud of her service to our country....
For her bravery.....
Her honor....
Her self scarifies.

But on the flip side, as her mom......
I worry to a point.....
I am concerned for her welfare at all times.....
I pray non-stop for her safety.....
I smile on cue, for her benefit....
I make sure I give her encouraging words.....
Never showing her my "mom" emotions.
And I tell her " I love you" every second that I can.

My best day came when I received that all mighty pre recorded phone call that MY solider was heading to US soil.....
There was tears, laughter, thankfulness, and praise to my daddy God for bringing her home.

Now  almost one year later, I receive a message from my beautiful solider girl......
She is going again..............
No specific date has been set....
No exact location been said.....
Just the word the "deployment" and I am holding my breath......

Here we go...Again.


Again.......
I will believe in HIS protection over her.....
I will believe in HIS wisdom in her.....
I will believe in HIS promises for her life......
I BELIEVE she will come home again without one hair removed from her head!!!!!

I am a mom, with mom emotions.....
However I am first and foremost a child of the Most High God....
And I STAND on His word and His promises!!!!!

.


Proverbs 18:10 - The name of the Lord is a strong tower; the righteous run to it and are safe.

Psalm 121:2 - My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth.

Psalm 121:3 - He will not let your foot slip--he who watches over you will not slumber.

Psalm 121:7 - The Lord will keep you from all harm--he will watch over your life;

Psalm 121:8 - The Lord will watch over your coming and going both now and for evermore.

Psalm 27:1 - [Of David.] The Lord is my light and my salvation--whom shall I be afraid?

Psalm 91:4- He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wing you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.

 Again......
I will proudly take out my "blue star flag" and when the time comes,  place in in the window for all to see until I ,again receive my pre-recorded call.





My daddy God has spoken many promises to me over my girls......
And I expect them ALL to be full filled.

She will come home safe and sound....
She is my baby......
She is His child.......
A mighty, beautiful warrior for His kingdom!!!



 And Again......I will Stand.

  1. This is difficult for a mother regardless if it is a son or daughter. Our daughter was stationed in Korea many years ago, and she was in a safe position, but we still did not like her so far away. Angels are watching over your daughter and May she be surrounded by a host and not just the two that we usually have assigned to us. :-)

I Don't Know Her Name........

 Over the weekend, I was blessed to travel with an amazing group of people to my home away from home, Cleveland Texas.  It is there supplies were brought and large cooking pots were fired up to cook and serve the community members after hurricane Harvey marked this town with his damaging winds and flooding rain. Serving and caring for those who have suffered a great loss tends to pull on the strings of my heart, however this precious lady not only pulled on my heart strings, her meek and humbleness has lodged a place in the depth of my soul. 

I had watched her walk through the church parking lot, shoulders slumped, her foot steps appearing to be in slow motion with her eyes scanning for someone to talk to. There was softness about her; a presence of need.  She asked if she had to register to gather the supplies she needed. After explaining to her she did not need to register and was welcome to take anything she needed, she humbly began to take a few items, she did not want to take …

Fresh Bread

Give us this day our daily bread.......  The smell of fresh baked bread never fails to have my mouth watering and my nose on high alert, not to mention the warm savory taste each bite brings with melted butter dripping over and drizzling down my finger tips. To say I love fresh bread is an understatement at the very least. Bread that gives me nourishment is not to be wasted, and neither is the spiritual bread my daddy God has for me.

The last week or so, when my alarm starts ringing and before my eyes are open, I ask the Lord to give my daily bread. A fresh word, a warm aroma, and a sweet taste of his bread (word) to begin my day. Now I must be honest and say I am far from a morning person. I am not the "jump out of bed, feet hit the floor running, birds chirping" kinda girl. I am a " hit the snooze button 5 more times, slowly sit up , and pry my eyes open with a crow bar" kinda girl.  And thankfully my daddy God knows this, after all …

When God Says Go, Will You Go?

Remembering the story of Jonah , God instructs him to go to the city of Nineveh and preach against it because of all the wickedness there. However Jonah fled from the Lord and ran in the opposite direction. After being thrown into the sea and swallowed by a giant fish for three days, Jonah cries out to the Lord and is then spat up from the belly of the fish to go and do as he was instructed.

Jonah 1:1-3
The word of the Lord came to Jonah the son of Amittai saying, : Arise, go to Nineveh the great city and cry against it, for their wickedness has come up before Me." But Jonah rose to flee to Tarshish from the presence of the Lord. So he went down to Joppa, found a ship which was going to Tarnish, paid the fare and went down into it to with them to Tarshish from the presence of the Lord.

I still have a time wrapping my head around the fact Jonah was in the belly of a fish for three days. I can not fathom the intense grossness of it all. Can you? Had he gon…
