Wonderfully Free

to worship
to write
to read
 to speak
to pursue
happiness
. . .
I Thank You


One of my son's best friends since grade school, recently in Afghanistan,
posted this on his facebook wall yesterday:

"Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial,
because when he stood the test,
he will receive the crown of life
that God has promised to those who love him."
-James 1:12


God Bless You, Victor.
and all your fellow soldiers!
We are so proud and so very grateful.
