military training etc

This is my youngest son. He is in ROTC at the University of South Carolina. He is at the beginning of his senior year and is headed out on Sunday for army leadership training ( LDAC--leadership development and acceleration course) at a base in the Seattle area. If you happen to read this, offer a prayer for Him . He is not the type to be nervous , but he is a bit anxious about this particular training. It is pretty tough. We pray he would do his best and that God would use this in the leading of his future.

My daughter's baby is due on the tenth. So our prayers continue to be with her.

My Mother-in-law, who has Alzheimer's expressed fear and a feeling of being crazy. It is a very difficult time in her life. What a fearful disease.

My Father-in-law is making good progress on recovery from his stroke, but he has a very long way to go.

Life is pretty amazing. I like this quote from the Mitford series: "St Francis de Sales had spoken ably to that: 'Do not look forward to what may happen tomorrow; the same everlasting Father who cares for you today will take care of you tomorrow and every day. Either He will shield you from suffering, or He will give you unfailing strength to bear it.'"


  1. Prayer for you and your family!!

  2. We'll be praying for him. We already have been actually! I hope he gets to see Get Smart before he leaves!

  3. I will pray for your son, Kim. Please tell him thank you for enlisting. God bless you and your dear ones, and have a safe and happy weekend. Kathi

  4. I will pray for everyone Kim. You do have a lot going on right now. It is so nice to be able to put it all at the Lord's feet. May God bless you and yours.

    Hugs, Sharon

  5. Your family continues to be in my prayer journal...I worked for many years with people with Alzheimer's...and it is truly a very difficult thing to go through...I also remember your son as he goes through his training
    blessings on your family at this time,
