Three More Days!

OK, so I really am digging this blogging thing. Honestly, it's kind of fun. Just sending your experiences out there for family and friends to see. I've even already come into contact with a few new people who have been so kind in suporting me! Some of you have read the kind blog that my dear friend Wendy put on her site about me. She's so dear to me, and I love her so much.

I haven't put an entry on in a few days, so I guess I can recap my week. We're counting down! The counting down is excrutiating! The days are slowly ticking by. I never knew time could go so slow. But, I am incredibly thankful that my husband is coming home. I know a lot of wives out there don't know when their husbands are coming home! God spoke to me in November 2005, when I was at a Women's Christian event. He very clearly told me that my husband would be going oversees, and that He would bring him back safely. Some of you might be thinking I'm crazy, but that was a month before either myself or my husband knew he would be leaving. So, when he came home and told me that he might be taking this assignment, I wasn't surprised at all! I truly believe that God speaks to his children, and we just need to be willing to listen!
So earlier this week we went to the zoo with a wonderful friend that I've met through church here. We had a good time! So here's my 9 year old, who decided he'd sit on this statue of a gorilla and "pick his nose" for him. Ugh, the joys of raising boys! I mean, seriously, couldn't he just sit there and look angelic? NOOOO! Lovely isn't it?

Yesterday, Wendy and I went to the park here near our houses, and had a nice time enjoying the wonderful weather. She takes such beautiful pictures. So she finally talked my 12 year old into letting her take a few pictures of him. He has the most beautiful eyes of anyone I've ever seen. Of course, I'm totally biased. He's a rock. He's so strong in his faith, at such a young age, he amazes me. He has been a source of encouragement this year that has far exceeded his age. And, I can't leave "little bit" out. Wendy also took a few really nice picutres of him playing. Cute, huh?

So, one last thing, does anybody know where I can get a good background template for my blog? I like this one, it's ok. I do enjoy a nice glass of wine, but it doesn't look like me. It's too dark. Any suggestions where to get one, because I wouldn't know where to start to make my own.

I love that pic with his freckles. I am sure he hates it. Not too much longer! AND, in just a few hours we will go to OUtback, and eat some yummy food, and watch a movie. That will be one more night down!! You're getting there!

Only a little more time left! I hear you on the last bit being so hard!

Thanks for visiting my blog- about Del Rio- as of right now we know that he commisions in May and then will probably go to ASBC in Alabama. We also have been told our first base assignment (i think casual status) will be at Andrews AFB in Maryland/DC... We put in for Del Rio though for the 2nd part so when I find out i'll definitely let you know!

I got here from Wendy's blog. Here is a verse that I hope will encourage you:

"...being strengthened with all power according to his glorious might so that you may have great endurance and patience..."
-Colossians 1:11

The Lord will certainly honor you for all you have endured and accomplished this year.

Congratulations on the return of your sweetie!!

I saw these pictures on your friend's blog a few days ago, and commented then about your son's gorgeous eyes! I'm sure he's sheepish about it, though.

Thanks for visiting my blog; I'll definitely be back to check on you!
