Musical Monday - Orange Sky

Hi gang. It's been a challenging weekend.

I've been to Ft. Drum and back...
I've laughed and cried...
Breathed a sigh of relief over seeing one of my soldiers return. Battered; bruised; in need of healing - but HERE....
Had my heart break just a little over seeing how hard the road ahead for him is going to be.

You're probably going to laugh at me; but something about an Army base just feels like home to me. It's likely because I grew up in a military family; but I feel like I belong.

This week's song is a favorite of JC's and mine (and a few of my honorary brothers too). It's an amazing song and I cry almost every time I hear it.

A huge thank you to all of you. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! So many of you have emailed your thoughts and experiences with PTSD, offered encouragement and most importantly - prayer! I can't say enough about the power of prayer. All of our soldiers need our prayers and I encourage you to keep them on your prayer list.

Much love. (And back to my usual lighthearted posts tomorrow! If you want in on my giveaway - this is your last chance. :-)


  1. Glad you are back safe and sound and that you got to be there for one of your brothers!!!

  2. I'm so glad your trip went well, Cole. And I know your friend (which one?) must have really really appreciated you being there for him! How bad are his injuries?

    Justine :o )


I LOVE comments! Tell me what you're thinking. :-)
