My Brother

My brother is coming home from Iraq in March!! Yay!! He's coming down here so that he can go on a cruise with his wife. I am getting them Disney tickets so that they can have the greatest time possible. I can't wait to see him and hug him!!! You all have heard me talk about Nick before. I figured that I ought to put a face with a name and share some pictures with you. This is my brother Nick with his wife Emily and children Nate(left) and Ben. What a beautiful family! Don't ya think!

These pictures were taken when he was on leave from Iraq. I think he got to spend two weeks at home and meet his son Nate for the first time. This next picture brings tears to my eyes every time I look at it. He looks so loving holding his son in his arms yet so sad that he has to leave him to go back to war. Could he be wondering if he would ever get to hold him again?

I know in my heart that God will bring him back to us all safe and sound! He has so many people praying for him. I told him that we have prayed a bubble right around his helicopter, and that nothing will ever touch him. Thanks to everyone who has sent happy thoughts and prayers his way. He really appreciates it, and I truely think it makes him feel safer.
