Then Sings My Soul Saturday for the Soldiers

I hope you are all doing great this wonderful pre Christmas week-end...that your shopping is finished, and you are enjoying a peaceful time reflecting on the gifts you've already received this year...health, family, food, and shelter.

Please join me as I fill my morning with song by visiting Amy for Then Sings My Soul Saturdays. I wasn't going to participate today, as I am still very busy, but I found this video and had to share with you.

We know it isn't Santa that brings them home, so please join me as I pray for our wonderful soldiers, that He will bring some home, and those that cannot come home for Christmas will feel the love of their families from far away, and that they feel the presence of God walking with them...that they are covered with a blanket of His protection as they sacrifice their comfort, and sometimes their lives, with their courage and dedication to the freedom that has been given to us by Almighty God.

May the good Lord bless each and every one of you.



  1. oohhh Mary...how precious this little voice and her prayer! AMEN!!! amen! amen!

    Thank you for your heart and the prayers for me!
    May this little one have these prayers answered soon...very soon. So thankful for our soldiers & I join you in prayers for them & their families but no one can pray like this little child! God bless every one! the children, those serving and those waiting! precious families wrapped in God's love also!

  2. Praying with you, dear friend. Thank you for your voice on their behalf!

    Blessings and prayers,

    PS: please check out Sitka's blog. He has a prayer request on All Gods Creatures. We need a forever home for an abandoned Lab.

    Also, on arise 2 write, I am featuring Sarah, a bloggy friend who wrote a book about God's healing her heart and soul from abuse, etc.

  3. Mary,
    Please pray. I just had a woman contact me about the black lab. He is in the Richmond Va area and she is in SC. But I could drive him to SC if I need to or maybe she could meet me half way. I am working with her. It breaks my heart, too. Sitka and I decided he should write about it, today. I place dogs all the time, but the bigger ones are so much harder to place. I will keep you posted. Keep a check on sitka's blog. If we find a home, I will let sitka tell about it.
    Blessings and hugs, andrea

  4. Mary, I want Santa to bring my soldier home, too! Thanks so much for this...

    We were in your neck of the woods Thursday I think it was..into Walnut Creek to the Harley dealer there (funny, I couldn't get him to go to any quilt shops!) and the snow was still looking lovely in Mt. Diablo!
    Thank you for the Youtube...precious!!

  6. Wonderful reminder of the ones who are far away from home protecting our celebrations!

  7. Beautiful video, Mary, thanks so much for posting it.
    Beautiful post, and thank you for always thinking of our brave military, and for reminding us to pray for them and support them and their families.

    It's too easy to take so much for granted so I appreciate these beautiful reminders.
    Love to you,

  8. Mary, I am so glad you took the time to participate today. I absolutely LOVED that video. I posted it on Facebook too. I just thought it was so good.

    Blessings and love to you my friend,

    Thanks for your prayers and committed reminders for everyone else to pray.

  10. That was just precious. Agreeing with you in prayer for our troops. God bless them.

  11. Oh Mary this was just priceless. I had such a busy, but fun day. I am glad I stopped by tonight before I went to bed, as this really blessed me. I will join you in prayer for sure. Hope your tea went well. Love to you,

  12. What a precious song. I enjoyed scrolling down and looking at your beautiful photos too.
    Have a wonderful Christmas season.

  13. Well, I have not finished my shopping, but I am thankful for the wonderful gifts the Lord blesses my with day in and day out...

    Enjoyed your beautiful reminder of our men and women overseas and their great sacrifices....
