I Looked For You Every Day!


It's you, it's really you! Where did you go? I'm so glad you're home. I missed you so much. I looked for you every day. Please don't go away again. Oh, it's really you! You're home!

You can not imagine what goes through a dogs head when he sees the boss is home again. Tara is with us for her summer break and her dog Josh is in love again.

Thank you to all of you who serve and served our country. Thank you for the days you missed your families and even your dogs on our behalf. We are forever grateful to you for this sacrifice. Our prayers are with you and with the families of those who never returned.

May God bless you all with the knowledge of Christ and the power of His resurrection.

HappY 4th of July Stephen!!! This post made me teary ☺ So nice that you can spend some time with Tara. I was wondering how you all were doing in light of the storms that hit the US...anywhere near you? It's pretty steamy here too with the rain and the humidity but at least we have power. Praying for you all!!
Hugs,
Sarah ☺

Sarah,
There are many tears when a loved one serves in the military as you know. I wanted to try to capture how excited her dog is every time she comes home.
This dog spent every day of his first 5 years with her. Josh (the dog, I still think its a nutty name) lives with us now and enjoys life but he gets so excited when she is home. I wondered if Josh would remember Tara after her year in Korea. Well dogs are very attached to their owners so it was obvious.
I also want you to know that we will never forget the commitment you made to pray for Tara. What grace and love you have to remember a soldier this way! May God bless you mightily for having a heart for others.
Love from the USA!
