Although daddy-The Captain will not be home to celebrate with us until Friday & we miss him like crazy....We are thankful-thankful we have a daddy, a healthy daddy, a daddy who will eventually be home to celebrate with us God willing. A daddy who is not in Iraq, or in a hospital bed or already in heaven. I know women and children in all 3 of these circumstances this Christmas. But.... WE ARE MOST THANKFUL FOR OUR HEAVENLY FATHER. NO matter what happens-HE will always be there for us. Being without our earthly dad this Christmas is no big deal in comparison to being without our Lord and Savior.

"I will be a Father to you, and you will be my sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty!" 2 Corinthians 6:18

Dear Captain,

You and my 7 kids are the best gifts EVER! I want to thank you for joining me on our lifes journey together. Who would have thought 5 years ago we would have 7 kids? God is so cool-He knew the whole time-He's got a great sense of humor! I really miss you and am anxiously awaiting the feel of your strong arms around me. I just want you and the world to know-you are it, the love of my life, my partner and best friend! We can do anything together with God's help especially after having 4 babies at once, anything else has to be a breeze right? I know you probably really miss the kids-especially when you see other families traveling together on Christmas. Your job has to be hard being away from them and your home every other week. I appreciate you, I appreciate the wonderful provider you are for our family! Your children adore you and so does their mommy! Merry Christmas!

i have had you on my mind today. Though we are only Blog friends (so far:) I know God reminded me of you today. AS i was getting ready for church service and my four doing the same I thought of you and getting your 6 younger ones for church. Now that I see your Captain is gone til Friday i will especially pray for you this week. Enjoy your blessings (all 7 of them) and Have a Merry Christmas!
