Okay, I need to say it, to admit it openly, I am MISSING my beloved husband VERY, VERY MUCH! I am tired of it just being me! He really is my other half, the spice in my life. I'm not missing someone else tending the lawn or the sprinkler system, or having time to myself without the kids tagging along....stuff like that. I AM MISSING MY BELOVED! And it is harder than heck and there is NOTHING I can do about it except sit here and experience it. I really don't like it, in a way, but I know that the experience truly is a PRECIOUS GIFT from God to us. We needed this. But golly, is it hard! I don't feel like doing anything. I lay in bed some mornings long after waking up just so that I can do nothing but dream about my guy. This morning I thought about the time frame....we're just 1/6th of the way there.....there has GOT TO be a better way to look at it! Why isn't this time flying by?

Seriously....I KNOW this is a good thing. I truly and thankfully believe God's promise in Romans 8:28 "We are assured and know that [God being a partner in their labor] all things work together and are [fitting into a plan] for good to and for those who love God and are called according to [His] design and purpose." And so I will cling tightly to that.

Didn't mean this as a whine fest or pity party......just needed to share that. I pray that in some way it blesses you.

God is good all the time!!!

Karen, you would not even KNOW it was Glenn by the emails he writes and things he says! He wants to buy us new wedding rings when he gets back, as our marriage has become fresh and new. It's amazing!!! He's even....ROMANTIC!!
