USAF Boot Camp Letter #1

Standard
USAF Boot Camp Letter #1

Dear Chance,

My first letter to you as a member of the United States Air Force. Those words said are with great pride. I will not fill my letters with questions and worry. I know you’re fine and in good hands.

I’m really good at writing my thoughts and words and I’m kind of excited that I can write you. I choose to type because unfortunately my manuscript is not easy to read and it would take to long to spell check everything. Modern technology is a gift!

I figure you might be a little home sick and with the holiday weekend approaching you might be a little weary. This holiday will forever have a different meaning. I think it’s cool that you can feel it there on your first weekend gone.

Anyway, I’ve experienced a lot of changes. God has filled me with his spirit and I’m going to pray with you. Prayer is powerful in three and I’m praying with Jesus and God now.

Dear Heavenly Father,

When the day is long and the nights are short I pray that you fill  Chance with renewed energy and focus. Each morning when he places his feet on the ground that he feels your spirit and thanks you for having this day. Dear Lord, I pray that you bless Chance with courage, not only a warrior of our land, but an even stronger warrior of you. When he closes his eyes at night may he feel your comfort and love just like he’s cradled in the cusp of your hands dear lord. Please reassure him of your presence so he knows he is never alone. I feel like he has blisters on his feet and if this is true I pray you speed the healing of those. When he’s broken and feels his dignity has been lost I pray that you lift him up beyond the ceilings above his head but lift him high into your heavenly euphoria. Dear Lord I thank you for blessing me with such a strong child. He is wise beyond his years and I have faith that he will become a strong leader. He is the Shepard that leads the sheep and I pray you show him that.

Sealed With A Amen XX

I love you Chance and I know you are shining bright.

Love,

Mom
