The Wit

Is pretty certain his unit will be called into Lebanon next. Betzalel Eliyahu ben Tzvi Shmuel v'Hinda Rochel.

We are hoping not, not now, not ever. I want him safe and I don't want him to have to deal with the pain of causing harm to another. But he knows his duty to his countrymen and this country and he is prepared to do what he must.

The thing is we are entering Shabbat and he won't be able to tell us what is happening then.

I'm trying not to be silly and cry. It isn't really working.

It's not silly. I'd cry too.
All I can say is the IDF kicks butt!! I wouldn't want to be on the other side of that army,that's for sure!

OH if mamas ruled the world...I sorta doubt there would be wars!! I am actually relieved my children all have asthma...cause that should keep them out of the military. If ever there was a place worthy of defending however, it is Israel!!

I have been reading in First Kings, chapter 8 and there are sure some comforting thoughts in there and I was thinking of your sons.

We will be praying that Israel does well in this conflict. We know the prophecies and wonder if and which ones will be fulfilled in coming days. Judging by how it has been this year, we rather think some will come to pass. You face a foe that simply is incapable of reason. That demands a hard line. I have been amazed that our prez and miss rice have been taking the line they have...it is about time!!!

Blessings on you and your family!! May your sons return to you whole and healthy!! May HaShem protect ALL who serve and give them uncommon valor! One of our teachers we listen to thinks that Israel and HaShem will do this alone so that secular Israel and the world will wake up as to WHO is watching over Israel!! HE REALLY DOES EXIST!!
