Trash Fridays

From Trash Can

As the next year progresses, you will see this picture on the side of my blog. Every week we will be marking an x to show one more trash day gone!!! It is much easier to count 54 trash days than 380 some days!!! Hopefully before we know it we will have a page of mostly red X's :)

As We Face Our New Adventure

I found this poem/prayer. How perfect it fits...I know as that day of actual feet leaving US soil actually arrives we will have another day of sadness. But as the time approaches we have no choice but to know that God has a plan...a plan that we can handle with his help and love. Whatever road lies ahead I look forward to the challenges and chances to lean on him, even though I will be missing my best friend and love of my life.

Military Wives Prayer

At night when I crawl into bed,
My lonely pillow 'neath my head,
I close my eyes and say a prayer.
"God keep him safe way over there,
And make me strong so I won't cry.

It's kinda hard to be alone and
teach the kids when they're half grown,
without the strength of a father's hand
to guide them in this troubled land.

So I'll need a little help from you,
to let me know what I should do.
And God please will you let him know,
How much we love and miss him so.

And then I feel across the bed,
To where he used to lay his head,
and I close my eyes so very tight,
so I won't cry again tonight,
and whisper to the evening air,
"Good night my darling way over there."
