Blessings in Obstacles...




As I have said in an earlier blog my hubby is having to travel out of town for work. We are "throwing our nets out into the deeper water" or in other words, traveling to Jacksonville. We have a family business so most of the men folk are away, all but the wounded, he was left behind.


I remember when I was young and my Dad, who was in the Navy, would have to leave for long stretches of time. When he did leave, almost always some kid got hurt or something got broke; and my Mom would have to deal with it as best as she could. I am not great at living without my hubby but I am trying to do a good job as it helps no one by my not coping well. So, we are trying to make the best of it. We have set goals we would like to achieve while we are apart, so as not to waste this time that God has given us. We are trying to look for blessings in each obstacle as we believe that they are there even if as we struggle to see them. I think of all the military families that are serving and I pray God gives them his strength...they have such long deployments to contend with and hubby and I can barely make five nights. Our dog is sick, our son is sick, we have had a flat tire and God help me the coffee maker broke! Here's my sad picture...hubby talking with me on the phone.


God Bless all of our service people! We are thankful for your sacrifices.

That is quite an indictment...maybe absence does make the heart grow fonder...
