He's Home From Iraq!

Robert William Rawlins
***One Proud Marine***

We give thanks to the Good Lord for Robby's safe return home!

Well, to Okinawa, that is...for now. Our grandson is to be stationed at 29 Palms in a few weeks (that's only about 200 miles from here). His mom and dad are in Oklahoma, and I'm willing to bet, they'll be making a trip west pretty soon!

Woohoo! Praise God. Okinawa is a whole lots friendlier (been there!) than Iraq (don't wanna go there). Nice looking g/son, and I'm sure he's an even nicer guy. Big hugs, honey...

Hi there:

Great news. I am offering a prayer of thanksgiving for all of you, and I continue to pray for Robert's speedy and safe return stateside. I can just imagine your hugs and tears of joy when you are reunited with him.

Take care.

I've been past 29 Palms a time or two - you'll have to go visit sometime!

Many thanks to the Lord for Robert's safe return; hopefully he won't be deployed again anytime soon!

Praise God he made it out safely. Hope you are able to visit him often in "29 Stumps."
