Last Obama Post

I deleted it. 
It came off wrong.
I am very thankful that our country took on the challenge and killed this man.
Osama Bin Laden did so many horrible things, and I am so grateful that he is now deceased.
I am still not quite celebrating though, though it is a huge accomplishment for America.
This can only boost our troops morale, and allow many families to finally have closure and peace of mind.

I will be celebrating when all of our soldiers are returned home, safe and sound. 

I do not ever want to come off as unpatriotic, and last night I sounded just that way.
I love our soldiers men/women. I will be forever grateful for them.
My husband is currently training for his second deployment,
I am appreciative for everything they do.

"For I know the plans I have for you",declares the LORD,"plans to prosper you and not to harm you,plans to give you hope and a future". Jeremiah 29:11


  1. This is very well said!! I have been frustrated with people focusing on the negativity of the "blood thirst" and that we are no better than the terrorists, ect. Yes, there are some people that are a little crazy and portray their celebration as being for the "death of a man", but is that really the part we want to focus on right now... the negative of some people? This is a time where we should be united, not divided over the reason we are celebrating. We should all be celebrating... unless you think Osama was innocent... we should all be celebrating. I didn't dance in the streets or anything, but I was able to lay my son down to bed that night and tell him all our sacrifices weren't in vein. And that was a celebration to me! I do not think it is right to celebrate "death", but I do think it is totally completely right to celebrate a victory that will raise the moral of our soldiers! My husband is about to go on a second deployment, and seeing people chanting "USA" and cheering for the victory did make me feel better about his deploying again, because he is fighting for all those thankful people who are glad for what he does. But the messages I received from strangers on FB, completely ridiculous, saying that he is no better than a terrorist... then made me want him to not go again because I felt like nobody was truly thankful and he was sacrificing for nothing.

    The Israelites were blessed by God as they went into battle, and they celebrated over each victory. Not celebrating the deaths, but celebrating the victory for their people.

    This was a really great article:

    Bin laden is standing before God waiting to hear his punishment, when God gets a tap on the shoulder.
    There behind him stand 343 firemen, 72 police officers, one k9 officer, 3,000 American citizens & over 5,000 soldiers. "Don't worry God, we got this!!!"

    wow sorry that was super long winded.

  2. That is how my first entry came off, that I thought our soldiers were equal to Bin Laden! I deleted it for that reason, I wrote it while I had so many emotions going on and it did not read how I meant for it to sound!

    I love America and our men/women are doing a great job over there! I am so relieved that he is dead, might not be christian like of me to say but when I heard the news a flood of relief just went through me. We have awesome armed forces and I am so glad and thankful for what they do!

    Thanks for liking and thanks for sharing the article and the story at the bottom!
