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."

Oh, Ami....what can I say, but thank you to you and your family for the great sacrifice you make. We are praying for a quick and safe return. I know there isnt much we can do from way over here, but know that you are in our thoughts and prayers, and if you need to talk, dont hesitate to call... or email...or text..or facebook...LOL! Stay positive and strong and busy, which appears you are good at doing anyway! Talk to you soon!

I haven't read that one before either. I like it.

Sorry it's that time again. It was harder for us with older kids but maybe it will be easier for you this time since you won't be pregnant.....right? lol

Oh hey we can't read the stuff in your sidebar it's really really light gray and blends into the backgound too much!
