A Mom's Prayer

Almighty God in Heaven,
I come to you with a humble heart.
My son is on his way to serve our country in a land so very far from home.

I carried this child under my heart
and held him in my arms.

I love him so.

I lift my son to You, asking You to guide him so that he does the best job possible while deployed.
Thy will be done.

I lift my son to You, asking You to protect him.
Thy will be done.

I lift my son to You, asking You bring him home - whole in body and mind.
Thy will be done.

I lift my son to You, Almighty Father.
Thy Will Be Done.

Our chorus had a performance tonight and we ended with "God Bless America". I thought of you and B and all of the men and women fighting for our country around the world. Never has that song had such meaning as it had tonight. God bless America and God bless you and yours!

Thinking of you. Did he arrive okay? From Mudpuppy's adventures, we learned that so much time was wasted in just getting there. Did his warm weather gear get there okay, too?
