My Son Is On His Way to Iraq...

My son who is in the Army is on his way to Iraq.  If it comes to mind, prayers for him (and us.. sniff, sniff) and all our soldiers over there, would be appreciated. 


  1. Hi Crystal,

    My thoughts are with you. Our ds spent 2 years in Iraq when we first went in over there. One thing I can tell you the army is very slow with information and things change in a minute. So we have learn to not get too excited over things. Just roll with the punches.If you need anything let me know. or my blog



  2. My family and I truly Thank your Son. Our prayers are with your son and your family. God Bless!!!

  3. I will be in prayer for you and your son. Know that my family will lift him up daily. Keep us posted!

    I know it is a hard time for you, it would be for me too, but trust in the Lord and lean on Him.

  4. Crystal,

    We just got home from Church and S.S. During Church I prayed for Richard and all of you. I will continue to pray.

    Love you my friend,


  5. Thank you, Richard...Crystal praying for you and your family in this uncertain time.

So as I lift them up Father I trust you to do what needs to be done in the lives of all for peace to rule and reighn. Gather all created in your image and give them love and joy unspeakable to bring them to the place they are to be with you eternally. In Jesus' Holy Name! I give you praise! *U*

  19. Crystal, I know how you feel I have many friends and family serving not only in Iraq*Friends who live in the US* but also friends and family who live in Canada who are in Afghanistan..

  31. Our thoughts and prayers are with your family. You must be so very proud of your son :) I know we all are, and our prayers and support are with you and your son. Please keep us all up to date and if there is anything we can do - Just ask!!!!


  32. We will be praying for your son and all those deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan.

    Our son was in Iraq 2-04thru 2-05 and I know those anxious moments only too well. Tell your son and all serving with him that we thank them for their efforts to make our world a better place. My son once told me, "Mom, our country may not be perfect but it's the best place you'll find, especially if you've served in places like Korea and Iraq." We and our church will keep you in our prayers.
