Love you, Jo.....Be Safe!

Jordan flew out early this morning - right after midnight - to begin the trip to Afghanistan. I think there are several stops along the way and not positive when he actually arrives in Khandahar....I just know he is too far away and we miss him already. We did have the chance to chat with him last evening while he was waiting in the airport (there is a lot of waiting!) and that was a treasure.

I am updating my profile picture to include him (with his proud mama) and if you think of him when you check in on my blog...say a quick prayer not only for him but all of our military deployed overseas. Have a wonderful weekend!!

  2. Adding Jordan to my prayer journal and you too, friend!! Praying Psalm 91 and that God's mighty hand of protection be upon Jordan and His peace fill your heart and mind every moment of his deployment.

    I honor Jordan for his service!!

    Hugs and Sweet Blessings!

  6. I'll be praying for him. My brother just returned from Afghanistan. He was there for over a year. What helped my brother a lot he said was he had a bandanna that had Psalms 91 on it. He read it everyday. He said it gave him strength. I began to read it too. It really helped.

    We will definitely keep Jordan in our prayers. My brother-in-law got home the first week of July from 6 months at Kandahar.
