Psalm 78
. . . we will tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the LORD, his power, and the wonders he has done. .
so the next generation would know them . . . and they in turn would tell their children.
Then they would put their trust in God and would not forget his deeds but would keep his commands.

The LORD Bless You

"The LORD bless you and keep you;
the LORD make his face to shine upon you and be gracious to you;
the LORD lift up his countenance upon you and give you peace."
(Numbers 6:24-26)

Today we attended the departure ceremony for my brother-in-law and his National Guard unit that is leaving for Afghanistan. The ceremony was brief, but we were proud to be there and proud of our soldier. 

Following the ceremony we gathered at a restaurant with relatives and friends from another city that we only see occasionally. It was good to see them and their growing children and new baby and very good to hear about their lives. 

The departure ceremony was held at this historic train station that is now restored for events like the one today.

I am so glad I only met Jeff after he was medically discharged from the army! I will pray for your sister and her family.
