Thank God for our Soldiers

One beautiful night recently I commented to my husband about how peaceful our neighborhood is. The most noise we ever hear is a train that passes about 100 yards from our home a few times per day. Then I thought about how our American soldiers do not have the peace and quiet that we have. I thought of how fearful they must be when they try to get some sleep. My husband reminded me that the reason that we have peace is because of the men and women that are fighting for us in foreign lands. My husband's sister's son, Felix is one of those brave men that has freely risked his life for us. Thank God he is now on American soil. Included in this post is a photo of Felix and his mom (my sister-in-law) Karen.
