Another tough one.

Life is so precious.
We lost a special guy this weekend.  Sgt. James (Jimmy) Patton.
An amazing husband, dad, soldier and friend.
Brandon's workout partner.
I am sorry to be a downer, but if you want reality here, this is it for me right now. This is constantly on my mind. Praying for this sweet family. This picture was taken in march. (not by me).  They are such a sweet, amazing family. They have a little girl, ceci.  
I have known for years that freedom comes at a high cost. But this has been the ultimate hit for our family.

Thanks for understanding that although we love serving in the military, life is not always easy.  It is tough to see a family we love dealing with heartache...and we feel it too.  We know it is what we signed up for. Risk. Selfless service. 

My best friend said she was praying this. So I am too. May our God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. Romans 15:13

Praying for a week of hope and love for you.
