Musical Monday


I am sure you are wondering how many more of these Musical Monday's there will be, and I can assure you there are less than a handful...really less than a handful:-) As the deployment is winding down we look back on what God has taught us through this time. The ups and downs, the joys and hurts, the dry spells and consuming fires. I feel very blessed to have a husband, so strong and so amazing, and sooo in love with God. He holds me accountable and I try and do the same for him. So here is my prayer

Lord Jesus, I thank you for the past 6 months, for keeping us all safe and alive. I pray that we are able to see your will done and your work done throughout the days that have passed. That as the decisions made, done and gone, that they were of you and bring you Glory. Jesus, be with our family as we get ready to reunite and come together again. That the transition is easy and fun. Thank you again Mighty God, for all the blessings you have given us, in your Son's Name.

The song is From the Inside Out

Elissa I have never experienced a yearning of the soul as I do the last few weeks before coming home. I can only imagine how Christ felt after the forty days in the desert being tempted and having to fight Satan's attacks.
I feel weak, defeated, weary, and broken. In spite of all that, I know that our God is a mighty deliverer and that as good as it will be to come home and be with you it will be infinitely better to go home and be with Him. There is always something to look forward to when we live for Him. What a comforting thought. I love you and can't wait to hold you in my arms.
