Ok, so this is kind of a "touchy-feely" post and I hesitated posting it. But, it was thought provoking and important as well so I will just go ahead and throw this out for the world to see. :)
Last Sunday, one of the speakers in Church was relating a story about a POW who had been imprisoned for quite some time. Finally his captors allowed him to get a 25 word message out to whomever he wanted. He of course was not guaranteed his release to freedom and this was likely his last opportunity to say anything. He chose to write his last message to his family.
If you could give your family a message but only had 25 words to do so, what would you say?
So, Dana and I had both been independantly thinking about this topic and after talking about it, decided we would write our 25 words. We did give ourselves one little "cheat," we didn't count the greeting or the closing salutation. Here goes:
You are and always have been the love of my life. My only hope is to see you and the boys again. Love you forever. Dana
Love you all more than anything. Be faithful. Persevere. Find Happiness. Eternity will come. I am with you always. My family gave me joy. Forever, Cathryn/Mommy
Maybe this story struck Dana and I a little closer to the heart as we are an Air Force family and see a lot of families being seperated in the name of "peace."
Think about it.
(I will post something much more light-hearted soon!)
