Super Special Sunday!!

I will start off by saying pictures!!
But I do have a few things to say!!
Yesterday was a day that we had waited on with Justin being home and getting to go to church!!
When Justin was only two weeks old I dedicated him to God and asked him to always protect and watch over him! I have always taken Justin to church and taught him right from wrong and taught him that no matter what we are going through that God will always be there with us! And when Justin was deployed I could not go with him and watch over him there, so that is when I had to put my complete trust in God and allow him to have complete control and trust that Justin would be brought back home to me safe!
Through out the 7 months of deployment...I PRAYED!!
And yesterday Justin was at church and thanked each of them for praying for him! It was a day that I had waited on for all those see him up there playing his guitar and singing his songs that he loves so much!! I can honestly say that deployment may have made him grow up and to be a man that the USMC wants him to be but he is still in the will of God and serving him daily! Also, this deployment made me a stronger christian and my prayer life is stronger and so I can say that it helped me to grow too!!
Yesterday at church we had to pews filled with family to see our Marine enjoy his church! I just don't know where I would be with out family!!
And my blogger friends you all are just a special bunch too!! You have been here with me through the tears and worries and you have given me the best encouragement in words and spirit!!
I just had such a special Sunday and I know the ones that love me...and I appreciate EVERYONE of you!!!
I just had wanted to share all this!

And after such a wonderful day...
Bradley went to feed his cow and well got trampled because McGraw got spooked!! He is fine and I doctored him up really good!! So we are having a little trouble with the cow thing but he is just fine and wants to continue with this farming journey he has chosen!!
So that was our Super Special Sunday!!
Enjoy your day!!
Keep Praying...IT WORKS!!


  1. Long journey and rewards were great yesterday. I learned a lot about praying while he was gone and believing and trusting completely in God's plan. Enjoy your day. Hope Bradley is ok. Love you all!

  2. Woot! and Praise the Lord! and RAH!, and I am just so so so glad that there is another Marine in that magnificent fighting force of warrior men that knows WHOM he is ultimately serving... I told my Justin that I knew that he was called to be a Marine, and that it was a hard path on this earth, but that God doesn't call the equipped...HE equips whom HE calls. I told him I knew he would find the balance in being what is expected of him in the Corps, and living out what God calls him to do.
    And I know that the Marine Corps has trained and equiped these men to do what they do best, and that they will give it their ALL...but when it comes down to it, that Jesus Christ is the ultimate warrior full of infinite power and control and strength and protection...Who will watch the backs of HIS own. I pray that Justin knows and feels this truth. When Christian warriors are at their weakest, they are truly the only ones at their strongest, because it is Christ's strength that then takes over. They can do all things through Christ who strengthens them... whether it is battling in the thick of combat and life-or- death danger, or whether it is making a lone stand in the face of unbelievable peer pressure walking in the fleet-life back at LeJeune... God is with them. Rah for a godly mom who raised a young man to take a stand for what is good and right and dedicated him to her Savior to protect. They are not ours anymore, but they are forever in the watchful eye of the One who loves them more than we EVER could... PTL!!
    Hugs to you, and Love from an eternal sis!!! and a bloggy sis....and a Marine Mom sis!
    Semper Fi!!!
    Hang in there cowboy Bradley! Go whoop McGraw and show him who's boss.

  3. Cynthia, Cynthia, what a sweet post. I want you to know that you are a very inspriational mom to me. I have learned FROM you. Your strength always amazes me and I know that you get it from the Lord, who blessed you and me with such a wonderful family.

    Take care of Bradley. And if he wants me to, I'll go give McGraw a good ol' whooping.

    Enjoy the last week of summer vacation. Love you bunches!

  4. Poor Bradley! You go get that cow. We don't mess around with our babies do we?
    I am so glad you got to finally enjoy your Sunday service with Justin.
    I love you all! You are a fantastic mom and good Christian woman and I know your mama and daddy are looking down from heaven and very proud of you :0)

  5. What a beautiful heartfelt post! I am so happy that he is home, home in his own house, home in his Church, home in his heart! Love to all of you!!!
