So my husband has been home exactly one week today. After all this time he still never ceases to amaze me. Despite the 24 hour flight and jet lag, he hit the ground running...doing baths, helping with homework, tucking little ones in and so on. I've found myself thinking on more than one occasion how in the world did I do this without him. (Matthew 19:26) Unfortunately, it seems although Mike was only gone 63 days, my mindset went into "loner" mode almost immediately and has yet to snap out of it. For some reason I am having a hard time letting him back into "my" world. How crazy does that sound?! I've been waiting for him to come back since the moment I dropped him off. I so desperately want to be the wife spoken about in Proverbs 31. Instead, the wife spoken about in Proverbs 27:15 seems more fitting, "A quarrelsome wife is as annoying as a constant dripping on a raining day." Now I realize this is a very personal matter and I definitely don't want it to be misunderstood as I love my husband very, very much. What I want brought into the light is the fact that transitions are hard...whether they be deployments, having children, loss of loved ones, changes of jobs, etc. Any type of change is a transition...big or small. We need to be patient with one another in love and know that these transitional periods are normal. In time they will work out because, "all things work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them." Romans 8:28


  1. Transitions are SO hard!! I will be praying specifically for this tonight!! Hang in there! This too shall pass!! =]

  2. I would imagine that would be tough. I have no doubt, though, that y'all will work through it and be an even stronger couple once you do. I'll be praying for you!
