Well, it’s Sunday before Dave leaves at the crack of dawn on Tuesday. So not quite his last day, but close. We are all doing OK, but it is tough to watch the preparation begin. Deployment sucks (sorry, I don’t like to say words like that, but there really is NO better way to explain it)!
Having your best friend, lover, husband, and father of your children prepare to go to war is never fun. It hurts and it hurts deeply. My survival mode begins to take over and a little voice inside of me, continues to say “It’s going to be OK! It will be alright! You can do it!” But reality is there are no guarantees. We will pray to God that he stays safe and we will trust in God that regardless God will help us through anything he brings our way. So with all that said, I must say, I have a peace about me this deployment. I don’t know if that is a good thing or not, but I will trust in the Lord that we will manage!!!
“God please be with us, and please watch over Dave. Be there for him no matter what comes his way. Lord be with our children as they once again say goodbye to their Dad. In Jesus name....AMEN!!!”
