Heavy Heart

Every fall I attend a wonderful scrapping retreat that is so relaxing and inspiring in many things. Jane and Deb do a great job of making it a weekend for us. Over the years, you become a part of the family of DJ Scrappin Retreats. I am dedicating today's post to part of the "family". I know that several others of the "family" are doing the same.

Jane is a God-fearing, inspiring Woman, Mom, Wife and Grandma to be who is having to send off her oldest son Abe to Iraq today (pictured about dancing at Cali's reception). He has served a mission for the LDS church and graduated from West Point. He has had his training and has gotten married. He is leaving today to embark on the journey he has been preparing for over the past several years. He is leaving behind a wife, Grace, who is expecting their first child in the fall. May God be with Abe and his family while he is away in the unknown territory of war. May God hold Jane close today as she says one of many goodbyes she has had to say but undoubtedly one of the most difficult.

We love you Jane and pray for you all!

What a thoughtful post. I will pray for her to be comforted, and him to return home safely to his wife and soon-to-be baby.
