Welcome to the Realm™ - Version 5.0...

On this national day of Thanks giving I am mulling over tome of the things for which I give thanks. Right at the top of the list is that God sent his son as the perfect sacrifice for my sins. On a more human level, God has allowed me an amazing family all of whom are healthy, fed, clothed and who have a roof over their heads. As I look at the world around me, I realize just how fortunate this makes me and my family.

We in the USA have our poor and destitute, but even they as a class have much for which to be thankful. American poor are still better off than about 80% of the world’s people, and unlike many in other nations, our poor have the opportunity to improve their circumstances.

As we celebrate this day of prayer and thanksgiving, we need to remember those who are still struggling to recover from natural disaster, who are in fear of their lives because of beliefs they hold, those who are oppressed because they are of the wrong race or sex, and those who are dealing with ongoing, or terminal health issues.

Last but certainly not least, I ask that we give thanks for the service of those in our armed forces who serve far from home defending our freedom from those who would take it from us.




From all of us here at the Southern Command, to all of you — may you have a blessed and Happy Thanksgiving. Be sure to take a few moments to say a prayer for all the men and women serving in our military stationed overseas this Holiday season. Also be sure to give thanks at your meal for those veterans past and present who have made the choice to serve our country’s military that ensured our freedom to enjoy that meal today.

On to the update.

If you’ve been following the recent announcements from the Command Public Affairs office, you’ll already know that the Generalette and I are in the process of getting licensed as a foster/adopt home. Well this week, the final piece of the pre-licensure puzzle was completed. The home study. The agency we are going through did approve our home, which is what we were hoping for. Now our license package gets typed up and submitted to CPS (aka Child Protective Services) for the final licensing steps. Should take about two weeks to complete and the license to get sent out. Once we get the rubber-stamp approval from CPS, that’s when the fun begins. It’s at that point that we could get the call that there is a child for us to take in. As you can imagine, the Generalette is almost beside herself with anticipation. On top of it all, the Christmas season is a huge deal for her and her family.

More details as they become available.
