Who doesn’t love a good surprise homecoming video from our men and women in uniform?

This Veteran’s Day, these well-loved viral videos hold a particularly special place in our heart, as the heart-wrenching joy family members experience to see their loved ones return home safe serves to underscore just what a big sacrifice our military families make.

In one particularly sweet video, an Army doctor surprised his doctor wife by posing as a patient in the middle of her work day.

Dr. Alice Splinter thought she was attending to another patient, but got the surprise of her life when her husband, Joshua Splinter, was sitting in the exam room instead, having kept it a secret that he’d come home early from a deployment in Africa.

“It took a second for me to take it in. I honestly almost passed out. My knees got a little weak, but I was so happy to see him I just tried to hug him and stand there and take in the moment,” Alice told InsideEdition.com.

Joshua is a family physician for the Texas Army National Guard, and had been in the Port of Africa with his unit for the past five months.

In that time, Alice and their family had moved so she could finish her residency.

When Joshua found out he’d be home earlier than expected, he carefully organized the surprise with the help of a family friend.

He even went as far as to pretend to be in a different time zone while on the phone with his wife.

“I’m talking to her on the phone and I’m having to say, ‘Alright, I have to go to bed,’ but really it’s the same time. Otherwise, this is all gonna give it away,” Joshua admitted.

The couple were asked if Joshua may be able to outdo this awesome surprise the next time he may be deployed, although he’s not likely to leave the States anytime soon.

“No, this was a great surprise, I’m happy to have him home,” Alice replied, laughing.

What a sweet and fun way to celebrate their reunion!

LA County Now Lifting Ban On Indoor Worship Services ‘To Align With Recent SCOTUS Rulings’

Published

Los Angeles County has decided to finally follow the Constitution and honor the First Amendment right of freedom of religion — a right handed down by God Himself — and lift a ban on indoor church worship services over the weekend after recent Supreme Court rulings in favor of houses of worship. Gee, how nice of them to allow folks to do what God commands them to do and hold services inside a building like normal people. This should never have been something that needed a Supreme Court ruling. The Constitution is pretty clear that the right to freely expression religion is protected. via Daily Wire: “The Los Angeles County Health Officer Order will be modified today to align with recent Supreme Court rulings for places of worship,” the county said in a press release Saturday. “Places of worship are permitted to offer faith-based services both indoors and outdoors with mandatory physical distancing and face coverings over both the nose and mouth that must be worn at all times while on site. Places of worship must also assure that attendance does not exceed the number of people who can be accommodated while maintaining a physical distance of six feet between separate households.” “Public Health strongly recommends that places of worship continue to hold services outdoors, with physical distancing and the use of face coverings to prevent the spread of COVID-19 to congregants and to the entire community,” the release continued. “Because Los Angeles County is experiencing an unprecedented surge of COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations, and deaths, every effort to prevent the spread of COVID-19 to congregants and to the entire community is critical. This is an absolute win for religious liberty, one of the most important and fundamental rights our republic was established upon. In fact, it was our forefathers seeking after religious…

Catholic Priest Says A Prayer For ‘Unborn Child In The Womb’ During The DNC

Published

on

A Catholic priest who was called upon to deliver a prayer during the Democratic National Convention no doubt made quite a few folks very, very angry by praying for and making a plea on behalf of unborn children at the end of the event. Rev. James Martin, a Jesuit who has caused quite a stir in the Catholic Church for his writings about gay and transgender issues, prayed that folks who were watching the event would open their hearts to “those most in need,” which included “the unborn child in the womb.” Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner: “Help to be a nation where every life is sacred, all people are loved, and all are welcome,” he said. Martin confirmed to the Washington Examiner earlier in the week that his prayer would contain explicit references to the unborn. Although a hot-button issue for much of the Democratic primary, abortion did not play a major role in the Democratic convention. Aside from Martin’s prayer, the issue received only minimal attention, with some speakers mentioning it in their speeches. Republicans, by contrast, are gearing up to make a major issue of abortion at the Republican National Convention next week. In addition to several anti-abortion speakers, the Republican National Committee invited Cardinal Timothy Dolan, archbishop of New York, to deliver the convention’s opening prayer. Dolan has previously done so at both the Republican and Democratic conventions, during which he prayed for the protection of the unborn. At the end of the day, abortion is one of the most critical issues to face our culture in modern history. The reason, of course, is because fundamentally, at the core of the issue, is the defense of the most basic right we all have. The God-given right to exist, to live. If we cannot…
