Marine Moms Are Special
From Mike, of Richmond, KY
This is a great site! Marine Moms have got to be very special; God knows that their children now serving are. I wish I could send a note to every single Mom that has a child in this war. Nothing elaborate...just a simple thanks. As a veteran of the U.S. Army Infantry officer's corps and now a father myself, I know that these mom's are fighting a very tough inner war of their own, and in its own way it is just as tough as the war their children now wage."

A favorite hymn: God's Encircling Arms
Everlasting arms of Love
Are beneath, around, above;
God it is who bears us on
His the arms we lean upon.
He our ever-present guide
Faithful is, what-e'er betide;
Gladly, then, we journey on
With His arms to lean upon.
From earth's fears and vain alarms
Safe in His encircling arms,
He will keep us all the way,
God, our refuge, strength and stay.
