Stop the clock!

Only one more day and my husband and very best friend will be headed for a life changing experience! I'm excited and sad all at the same time. Excited because I know it is what the Lord has called us to do and I know my husband will be an awesome chaplain, but sad because we will have to be apart for the summer.

I've found myself waking up the last few mornings thinking, "I can't believe we are this close to him leaving!" We thought it would never get here and now we are wishing the clock would quit ticking so fast. I pray daily the Lord will help me to be excited more and more, and sad less and less. I pray the time will go by quickly and that our children will adjust well. The twins are extremely close to him so I'm wondering what's in store for them, as they were babies when we got out of the Air Force over eight years ago and don't really know what it feels like to be apart from dad for that long.

The one sure thing I can stand on right now is the fact that the Lord is watching over us and has called us to something we can't do on our own so that He can be glorified in and through our lives. I love that in my weakness He is made strong, that He is walking this path with us all and is in complete control.

Though the clock continues to tick, I will trust in you, Lord! Help me to give you every minute of every day and trust you with whatever lies ahead.
