NEWS ON JON

Erin heard that Jon's unit is in Ireland tonight. Even the Marines must endure customs! And theirs takes about 8 hours.

They should be leaving for the USA at about 7:30 am our time and arriving in North Carolina about 5:30 pm. YAY!!

Thanks so much for your prayers.

I'll let you know when he arrives in Oklahoma!

Just hours ago I watched my older brother, a USMC recruiter, load up two fine young men from my parents' congregation and get them set for boot camp.
I stood there with their mothers and family and started to think about the sacrifices made daily and in such large ways by the families of the Marines (I'm partial to Marines).
Reading this after today was a true blessing. Praise God for your son in law's safe return and your daughter's steadfastness!

I am so happy to have found you here. What a treat this post is to me!

Amy-such kind words...those Marines ARE special! (and go read Amy's posts today...)
Kim--they ARE excited! Erin has been preparing their home for his arrival. New texturing and paint, making curtains, new photos...and it's gorgeous!

That is so exciting! I have been thinking about Jon Boy a lot lately! Have you all been watching Big Brother at all? Ryan really reminds me of Jon sometimes.. don't know what it is, just some of the things he says and his mannerisims... So happy for Erin and the boys I know they are ready to get him home!

Robin Meadows said...

Hey Krissy!

haha...Jon Boy...but it made me tear up to hear you call him that!
Haven't seen Big Brother. Good to hear from you.

Erin has heard that there are two units coming in tonight. One at 7pm and one at 1am.....we're hoping for the earlier arrival! Either way, he'll be in by morning!
