Mail Call: A Blessing for Military Families...

When my beloved first left for deployment,
I signed us up for No Greater Joy's offer
for deployed military families.
What a blessing it was to receive
this in the mail today...

They also send a box to the deployed spouse!
If you know of any military families
with deployed loved ones,
this is a wonderful free offer.
Here is a link to their offer...
No Greater Joy's Support Our Troops Offer

Just as a disclaimer:
I do not necessarily agree with
the Pearl's 100%, however,
I do appreciate much
of what they have to say
and I greatly appreciate their ministry.
I have found much of their material
very challenging and encouraging.
But, as with all things,
read their material
with prayer and discernment.

Out of the Mouth of Babes...

{{written Friday, January 26... transferred from other blog}}

My heart was blessed this morning

when my son shared what he read
during his quiet time with God.

He shared with me that he read in Matthew 4

about how the devil tried to tempt Jesus
and how Jesus didn't give into temptation.
We discussed how Jesus responded to the devil

using Scripture and how powerful
God's Word is to fight off temptation.

He shared how he really liked that chapter,
how he never really thought about it that way,
and was glad he learned that this morning.

Later, as he was praying over lunch,

he asked the Lord to help him
fight off temptation and to obey.
He asked Him to help him be more like Jesus.

May that always be our prayer, too.

"And Jesus saith unto them,
Yea; have ye never read,
Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings

thou hast perfected praise"?
~ Matthew 21:16

"But Jesus said, Suffer little children,
and forbid them not, to come unto me:
for of such is the kingdom of heaven."

~ Matthew 19:14

"Whosoever therefore shall humble himself

as this little child,
the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven."

~ Matthew 18:4

"He must increase, but I must decrease."

~ John 3:30

Daddy Gifts...

{{transferred from previous blog}}

Yesterday we saw my beloved off to Iraq.
A special thank you to those that have been praying.
What a comfort it is to know
we have been covered in prayer.
I wanted to share the photos of the gifts
that we got for the children.
Daddy gave them their gifts yesterday before he left.
I'm not going to narrate with these photos ~
just share the moments...

"...The LORD watch between me and thee,
when we are absent one from another"
~ Genesis 31:49
