When I see those smiling faces above, I am once again reminded of how it is only by God's grace that we've survived the last 14 months.  I have honestly never been through anything as hard as this time apart from Richard.  I am humbled beyond words that God loves the seven of us so much.  In all our sinfulness and times of faithlessness, He never wavers in His provisions and in His care.  We are not deserving, yet God continues to pour abundantly into our cups that are already overflowing.

We still have two months left until Richard returns home.  Please continue to pray for patience and perseverance for the girls and me as we try to finish unpacking and settling into our new home and life in Kansas in preparations for their Daddy's return.  And please continue to pray for safety for Richard, as it matters not to the enemy that his time is almost up.

More to come ...  


  1. I checked your blog yesterday to see if you had posted recently and was wondering how you were. I'm so glad y'all are nearing the end of this deployment. I truly cannot imagine handling all that you do for 16 straight months- you are a strong, strong woman!! Sending up prayers for you and hoping that the move from GA was as painless as possible!

  2. So good to hear from you!!! Still praying.

  3. So fun to see those faces and know them!
    Did you get my email that a few of the girls things were left behind? When you have a moment let me know your address and i can pop them in the mail.
