I received a phone call also...TODAY...2008
from my son Charlie
He is in Iraq at this present time serving with our armed forces and surprised me with a phone call! I was totally unprepared for this call also ...and tried my best to keep my composure, given I had just read some of my readers comments from the precious post.
He was so excited to tell me of the good things the LORD was doing for him already. Another soldier saw him reading his Bible and said that he too was a Christian. He had also gone into a chapel on his initial arrival to his destination and there he found Bibles with his home church's name in the USA stamped inside. He said it was a little touch of home..so far away.
I'm so thankful for the little things that God brings our way to show he cares..to show us he is indeed with us and knows us.
Please pray for him while he is away from his family. He has 3 living children..and also..yes, he too has one with the LORD. His girls are twins and one son, named Stephen.
This touched my heart deeply today...such timing...
Thank you Lord.
I also read in a devotional this morning...
I will mention the lovingkindnesses of the Lord, and the praises of the Lord, according to all that the Lord hath bestowed on us... Isaiah 63:7a
The devotion stated:
Forget not what thy God has done for thee; turn over the book of thy remembrance, and consider the days of old.
Go back, then a little way to the choice mercies of yesterday...
