~PRAYERS FOR CHASE n' KRISTI~ He leaves for KUWAIT tomorrow ~

~FACES OF OUR US MILITARY~ Imagine how my heart sank when I opened this Christmas card from Chase and Kristi.
To see it, in color, in a picture, of someone you know, someone you love and hold so close to your heart. Knowing that these are the Faces of Our Country's Protectors, Our Defense, Our Military.
From Kristi and Chase, a beautiful and somber reminder of those women and men who serve our country. Both here on our HOME LAND and ABROAD.
THANK YOU doesn't seem to be enough, but I say THANK YOU, from the bottom of my heart, for your daily sacrifice, to keep me safe, to keep me FREE!!!!
For you, I owe my deepest gratitude and respect.
Prayers are needed as Chase leaves for Kuwait tomorrow. He will be gone over 400 days. Pray for God to watch over both of them while they are apart. Pray to God to keep him safe and to come home GODSPEED.
THANK YOU KRISTI and CHASE, and to ALL MY OTHER FELLOW AMERICANS, who risk their life for me....THANK YOU, EVERY SINGLE DAY!!!!
Love and prayers to all of you, Amy

My girl's friend Dan is in the USN and stationed in Virginia but we pray & worry for him everyday. He just went back yesterday after attending his grandfathers funeral. The military is a difficult life but I pray daily for all our soldiers and their families everywhere. My hat is off to them for serving me personally. I am very honored and please know the prayers are already being said. God Bless You!

My first reaction of this photo of Chase and Kristi was strength, pride and honor. Such a wonderful photo. God Bless them both. Thank you, Amy - and your family - for making sacrifices for our freedom. It doesn't come easy and the heart of a military mother is always being tested.

love ya,
Becky
