This may be old fashioned, or out of date, but I do it as a reminder of the one I know who is overseas and to pray for them and their family waiting at home. The first time I did this tribute was for my niece’s husband who went to Afghanistan, he was there at least twice and maybe three times. Hard on all of them each time. I did it again when a cousin’s son was over there. Now I am doing it again, this time for Tracy’s Alfred, who is in Kuwait and will be gone almost a year. He just got there last month.
Tracy and Alfred have three children, two still living at home and she is holding down the fort while he is gone. My love and prayers go our for them at this time.
You can visit Tracy here at The Enchanted Cottage. She is creating a haven for her family on a budget and encourages others in their pursuit of the simpler life, getting out of debt, etc.
It is not easy for our military men and women any time they are away from family and home life. The all need our encouragement, support and prayers.
