Just a few minutes before going to church....

I have a few minutes before going to church and thought I'd post a little something....Got a letter from my John and after graduation he will be stationed in New York at Fort Drum for more learning, out of 210 boys the drill Sargent told him he's their best shooter and they are now doing qualifications for their weapons, I am getting very excited about going to his graduation in October and seeing him and hugging him, I was watching a video on a face book page they have and the boys where jumping from what they call the " Eagles Nest " it's a tower about 7 stories high and some of these boys where scared out of their minds, they are harnessed in, they had to scale down and one of the drill Sargent told a boy this " The enemy has no fear and so we should not have fear" that has stuck in my mind, when I first heard that I thought " The devil is our enemy so there for we should not fear him" like the soldiers in training, their drill Sargent's are their protector right now, like GOD is ours, they trust their drill Sargent's and we should trust " our drill Sargent JESUS" like the drill Sargent's in the boot camp they are not gonna let these boys get hurt, they are making our future, just like GOD, he's not gonna let us get hurt for we are the future, does any of this make sense?






My mom and step dad are not gonna be able to make it to Johns graduation, which is a good thing I'm thinking, mom would have a terrible time there breathing and the heat, so it's just gonna be the 3 of us, a nice memorable family vacation, havent done that in years, seems like once the kids got older they didnt want to go any where with us, " Too boring " .....






Please keep Oklahoma and the other states that are much need of rain in your prayers, my cousins in Oklahoma that have pig farms, have had to have their grain shipped in from other places, no rain to water their crops, a huge expense on them.






I will leave you a couple of pictures of my John I found, keep these future soldiers in your prayers, I've been asking GOD to keep them cool and to carry them when they feel they cant go on any more, and to have the angels gently flap their wings with a cool breeze on them on these hot days there, the other night on the news the heat where Fort Benning is was 101, thats pretty dang hot....

John is the one in the middle writting, this a bible study they have for the boys....

You are going to be so excited when you see him! This has been quite an experience for your entire family...and I'm so proud of John! October will be here before you know it- meanwhile, what a blessing that they post pictures.

Love to you Nettie ~
