The Colonel called with some news last Wednesday.
Guess who's going to Afghanistan?
Come on, take a guess.
Okay, I'll give you a hint.
How long will he be gone?
Oh, just a year.
Yes, a year.
He reports to Ft. Benning, GA on December 12th.
For those of you counting, that's in about 5 weeks.
He was home over the weekend and we told the kids.
They seem to be doing okay with everything.
Me...well that's another story.
I'm dealing with it. It's beginning to sink in.
I know it's going to be a hard year, but the Lord gave me a promise.
It's found in Joshua 1:9
"Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the LORD thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest."
Thank you for your prayers!
