Updates and Prayer Request

Just a short blog to let you have a few quick updates and also to request prayer.

1. We had a wonderful two weeks with our Warrior for his R & R from Afghanistan. We were able to celebrate Christmas with him. And then last weekend - we had a birthday party for Hal, Jonathan and Ronnie with the entire family together. (All three birthdays are within approx. 3 weeks of each other.) Such fun days together. And one desire that I had for those days is that God would multiply our minutes together - and He really did. It seemed like much more than just two weeks.

2. We have our Church Couples' Retreat coming this weekend. We love it and are so excited about the opportunity - but because of the past two weeks - we are SO behind in getting the final touches together.

So, there are two requests in here - prayer for our son and his precious wife as he serves the final months of this deployment. And then prayer for us as we lead in this conference/retreat.

Thanks so much! I so appreciate all of you. It is my desire to be more consistent with my blogging and visiting your blogs next week.

Dee Dee I am so glad that your two weeks with your son was such a blessed time. I am praying that he will be safe in the remaining time he spends in service.

I am praying that this retreat will be a wonderful event and that you and your husband will be able to prepare quickly and that God will be with you through it all.

Love, Linda @ Truthful Tidbits

God is always faithful to do exceedingly and abundantly more than we can ask or imagine. So grateful he answered your prayers dear friend.

Continued prayers for your soldier and his sweet wife...and for you as you prepare to minister to those at the retreat...
