Prayer Heart Award...




My oldest niece Sarah Beth is very special to me and I have been so proud of her the last year. She has walked through the same shoes I walked 17 years ago during Desert Storm - the first time Americans heard of a country named Iraq. She has sent her youngest brother-Wyatt and the love of her life -Joe to a far off place to fight for the freedoms we enjoy as Americans. She has done so with Grace, Bravery and many prayers. She bought a Heart locket the week Wyatt left and placed his and Joe's pictures in and has worn it every day-through thick and thin close to her heart- a constant reminder to pray continually for them. This week her locket broke and she wrote about it in her blog(check it out on right), I felt sad for her because I remember wearing a silver heart with a flag on it for 6 months and it becoming like a old friend. Her Joe is home and safe now and Wyatt will be home the first of June. Wyatt will still be on her heart and in her every prayer but for Sarah I think she deserves a award like the soldiers get - a Prayer Heart Award!!!

Many, many, many tears! Thank you for the wonderful tribute to the locket and what it has stood for! But the good news is that is is fixed and back on my neck!
