Merry Christmas Son

I just received some pictures from my "son", who is stationed in Iraq.
He wanted to share some of the Christmas festivities with me - and he makes me so proud.

George Wayne Fuller (lovingly called Gee-Dub by many but Georgie to me) is one of the most tender hearted kids God has blessed our lives with - he moved next door to us when he was just going in the 8th grade and he spent more time at our house than his own. We love him like our own.

Currently, he is stationed in Baghdad - serving his 3rd term as a chaplain's assistant - and Georgie has the most tender heart. He leaves a wife and young daughter here in the states and I know he misses them so much, but I just wanted to share a few pics with you so you might keep him in your prayers.

God bless and watch over you, Georgie ... I pray for you everyday. May God keep you in His hedge of protection and guard you and your family until you return.
Merry Christmas, son ♥

Cookie - that's so beautiful. God has blessed me through time with many additional moms and dads at just the needed moment. Thanks so much for your Christmas wishes - and I hope that tomorrow is a day filled with God's love and blessings.

Oh you KNOW how this reaches into my heart!
I pray that my son will not have to go, but if he does I know that our Precious Lord will watch over him and also give me the peace I would need.
I'll pray for this young man and his family..
xoxoxo CHristmas Blessings

What a sweet story! I realize his family and friends miss him, but what comfort he must bring to those serving in Iraq and also to the children in Iraq! Lovely to see such a good-hearted young man. A Happy Christmas to Ye and to Georgie.

Merry Christmas to your family, and your extended family will be in our prayers. Those are awesome pictures and a good reminder to all of us of the sacrifices our troops are making for us.
Many hugs and blessings!

What Great Pics, Cookie! Georgie is very lucky to have you as a "Mom". I know that at least one of those CARE Packages they are delivering are from you. You are such a Dear Friend to so many. Hugs to you & Georgie...Starla ;)

Oh I can see why your so proud Cookie! He`s an angel on earth. I love to see how ones outside our blood families can leave the same footprint on our hearts. I pray for his safe return back to his family.

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas! I`ve been going non stop and just can`t wait to sit back and kick my feet up for one full day!
So glad we to have crossed paths ;)
