Even though you have blessed me with more than I could ever have hoped for I feel a little sadnes coming up. I have been blessed to have spent every Birthday (mine and my children's) with my children. This Saturday is my son's Birthday and he is in Iraq. It is the first time I am not with my child on his Birthday. I ask that this day shall be like all others, that my mind be filled with your thoughts and not mine, and that I know in my heart that all is well.
My thoughts and prayers are definitely with you. This month is the month of Rajab... considered the month of God in Islam. During this month God pours forth His mercy to all His creation, so I will definitely ask that some of that Mercy be showered upon you and your son, God willing.
May God guide and protect you and your family and bring your son home safe and in perfect order, ameen.
Thanks Rev. Kelly and all. I know it sounds silly to be sentimental, knowing that in Truth there is no separation, but this thought somehow slipped in (I hate when that happens) and took hold of me. I feel more at peace today...but the storm isn't over yet. By the way, his Birthday is Sunday, my mistake. Thanks for all your well meant posts, thoughts and prayers.....it's working : )
