We’ve been studying wars in history this week. Heightening our awareness to the gratitude we have in our heart for all GOD’s TRUE blessings He has indeed bestowed upon us.



Our boys made gingerbread today as we read journal entries from a nurse: “after spending the day bandaging soldiers wounds in the hospital fields, we would provide gingerbread to the soldiers as a comfort.”


How blessed we are to snuggle up on the couch as a family tonight, read war stories of bravery, persevering through trial, and something as simple as “gingerbread” that became a regular blessing for soldiers in the midst of the worst conditions. We know that we must always trust in GOD when times are good and when times are harsh-believing in the future HOPE he has prepared for us.


As we feasted on our gingerbread cake tonight, struck with tears in awe of where we are given the precious gift to sit, take our places, and FEAST one day:


Jesus said:

“I say to you that many will come from the east and the west, and will take their places at the FEAST with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob IN THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN.” Matt. 8:11
