I offer you my sentiments and my prayers.  My son was an Army Lieutenant and there wasn't a day that went by that I did not have an upset stomach and my "daily" talks with God.  It is one of the most awful things in life to have a child you cannot protect.  We are trained in our mind to protect them no matter how old they are.  I have learned not to listen to "everything will be fine", because often things do not turn out the way we wish.......only God knows what will happen and His reasons for doing so.  I hope your son gets out of this okay.  I will pray that will happen.

Look at the quote underneath my signature..........a friend sent that quote to me via email......we all have our crisis to deal with......we can only hope our faith in God sustains......faith in Him that he knows what is the right thing for us.

Remember the journalist.........she came out okay.....Group prayer does wonders......I was in a bypass surgery 5 years ago........50-50 were the odds........14 hours in the surgery............BUT I had something more special than the wonderful doctor who performed the surgery.............I had EVERYONE praying for me.  My mom called her sisters and brothers (11 of them) and had their churches pray for me in Sunday services.....My mom called every one of her friends to do the same.  THE POWER of PRAYER is awesome!!!!!  Also a mother's love is something we must never take for granted.  God's love and a mother's love...the greatest loves of all.

    Oh yes SandyK,

    I remember the journalist you wrote about!  It was so overwhelming to me that day that I "Blogged It!" and I believe what you say is absoloute.  Group prayer is an awesome thing.  I know that as my day began and I ended up here and saw all the prayers and support offered in this thread that those prayers that I had not yet even read is exactly what I was standing on.  I like the quote and thank you so very, very much! 

    Prayers are so powerful, and even more powerful is the movement of love that I feel throughout this thread!

    Thank you!

              Daily we pray for all our troops stationed everywhere all over the world and their families.  We write and send care packages to the men and women who are giving their all for the rest of us. Blue Angel Rest assured that many prayers are going up.  Believe that HE is and HE will, according to His will in the name of His Son Jesus---AMEN!

                I can't really add anything that hasn't already been posted, but I wanted to let you know I am sending you my thoughts, prayers and hugs and hope that, in some way, you find comfort in knowing that even a stranger can care and close her eyes, lift up her hands and ask for love and guidance during such troubled times. Imagine the power when thousands of us are using that positive energy, and suddenly the word stranger has little meaning. Peace, friends. ~ Nancy

                  Is this the place to be or is this the place to be.  Shortly after I logged on today, Dezmond, was signing in.  We just left the chat room.  That was the longest time we'd ever been in the chat room together.  He told me that he read the email I sent him with all of your prayers.  He said, "Ma, that brought me and my whole unit to tears!"  People that don't even know us, praying for us like that!  I am just speechless to the reality of care and concern."  He asked me to tell you guys, that it is people like you who make him proud to be an American Soldier!  He also asked me to give the lot of you a big thank you for craddling his mother!  "A VERY BIG THANK YOU!"  Libra Dave sent me a personal email and one part of that email that I want to share said, "If God Brings You To It, He Will Bring You Through It!"  I just stared at that one line for a very long time and once again, I was reminded of God's grace in my life.  I must tell you, my heart again is toooo full.  I got a PM from Jorli that moved me to no end.  The line that stood out for me said, "I just asked God to supply you with whatever you needed."  Little did she know, that once I signed on to the post, Swiftly God began to supply exactly what I needed, which was to hear from my son and be reminded of a few things, God wal already answering Jorli's prayers for me and no doubt the rest of you's, but it didn't stop there, drumslinger reminds me about the very prayers that I count upon! Tells me to read the passage 23rd Psalm, which I have been stuck in lately!  mylollipop is already in action sending care packages and to top all that off justexploring says, "I can't really add anything that hasn't already been posted, but I wanted to let you know I am sending you my thoughts, prayers and hugs and hope that, in some way, you find comfort in knowing that even a stranger can care and close her eyes, lift up her hands and ask for love and guidance during such troubled times.

                  Well, Nancy, let me tell you, that's a plenty! 

                  Oh, how my heart does swell!  Often I have felt like, "Where else could I go if not "The Lottery Post!"  I am sooooo grateful to be in all of your company.  I do so, love the lot of you's!
