Time is drawing near...

I feel as though the tears are just barely hidden behind my eyes, that at any moment they could fall and I will be unable to stop them. I think about my best friend (my husband) leaving for 3 months very, very soon and I want to curl up in ball and weep. We've been best friends for 20 years now, and although we've been apart before it's been a long, long time! I already feel a little piece of my heart breaking and I'm not sure how much it's going to hurt when he leaves, but I know it can it not!

This Sunday our church will have a commissioning service for him and he will say good-bye. Next week our daughter will graduate from high school and we'll spend the next four days together as a family then he will jump in his truck and head off to training.

I know sometimes he worries about me and how I will do when he leaves, especially when I lay on his shoulder and cry because I just can't help it. I pray I can be strong for him and our children. I'm so thankful I have a heavenly Father who brings comfort, peace and strength. I can't even imagine going through this without the Lord in my life!

Thanks for stopping by my blog. We actually won't be moving anytime soon. My husband is still in Seminary, and won't be finished for a couple of years, at least. So, he won't be assecioned into the Chaplaincy until then. He will only be attending the first half of CHBOLC.
I appreciate your prayers for me and the kids, and I will remember you in my prayers as well.
