Well, with Mark being gone, I have not had the time nor the desire to blog. Plus I am still unpacking boxes and arranging where everything should go. Next weekend my in-laws will be coming. I've been working on the guest room trying to decorate. It has been a challenge since the room is painted a deep red. Eventually, I will paint, but for now red will have to do.
Mark is finally home from his business trip. Eleven days without hubby seems like a long time. But then I remember those who serve in our county's armed forces. Okay, from that view eleven days is not bad. Yes, with the Lord's help, I made it through and I am amazed. Believe me, He really worked a miracle...I barely complained. Okay, so I grumbled and whined a bit when hubby got to see the amazing Niagara Falls and I didn't. I've been wanting to see those falls since I saw them in an old View Master when I was 5 years old. Sigh. Someday I will get there (Lord willing).
No I missed my hubby, that is for sure, especially so when my two sons were quite the challenge. But something about this whole trial was different this time. I am trying to think...hmm. Okay, I think maybe I can say that I have grown in the Lord. I trusted Him to see me through. I chose to see it differently. Of course when our husbands leave we worry that something will happen, but this time I chose to let go of the worry. I chose to see it as a time to see how the Lord would provide for me each day. All I can say is that it was an amazing time, but I am very glad to have my hubby back.
