Serving His Country
This is my very handsome brother Dustin. He is on his way to Afghanistan to serve his country. He will be apart from his lovely wife and children and I know they will miss him so much. I'll miss him too. Please keep him and his family in your prayers. It must be so hard.
I really love my brother. I'm bursting with pride for him. Maybe "pride" is the wrong word, because I didn't have anything to do with how he turned out to be such a fine man. So why should I be proud. I admire him. He is a good and decent man. He's hard working and smart too. I really wish I was as smart as he is. He is a caring father and husband. He is also pretty funny.
I know he is all grown up now. But I can't help but to think of him as my baby brother. Wasn't he just the cutest little guy? When I was a kid I remember thinking he was the best looking baby I ever saw.
I want my brother to know that I am glad he is part of my family. I will be praying for his safety. And praying for his family's safety too. I will pray for his family and him to be comforted through this difficult and challenging thing they are going through. I love them so much.
