It's all good

"Adversity is like rain. It is required for growth. Without it you will never put down strong roots and flourish. On the other hand too much rain can turn into a flood!!!!!!!!!!!"

Well yesterday it was flooding!!! But today is a little better; It will all be ok. Yesterday just started out a little crazy, then turned into this really EMOTIONAL day. I get so emotional and confused...but its all good.

Weather wise, it really is a beautiful day. I am busy working, but the kids have been outside playing (it is Spring Break here). Yesterday was a yucky rainy day (in more ways than one), so I am glad to see a little sunshine today.

Love ya'll... Thank you for your continued prayers!

I am so glad that you are having a much better day today. I sure hate to see you not having a good day.

Glad too that you are back blogging.

I'm happy to hear that you are happy. :o) It is actually really nice and sunny outside right now, which is a good way to turn around a stormy beginning of the week. Hope you have a good rest of the week!

Hi Deanne. Keep that beautiful smile you have and keeping looking up to God, the author and finisher of our faith. I'm praying for you.

I know this time is hard. My father was in the Army for over 20 years and Mom and us kids NEVER went with him when he had to be assigned overseas. Mom said it was tough when Dad came home, but love and faith and commitment helps you work everything through.

Prayers heading up to heaven on your behalf.

It must be so hard to not have your husband with you. I'm sorry to hear he's over in Iraq now. You have a big job to do raising the kids all by yourself and I applaud you!! It takes strong women to do what you do!! I will be lifting you up in prayer today. Please know that you're not alone!!

What a beautiful couple you are and what a lovely family you have! I know you're extremely proud of Jason. I sent up a prayer for his safety and for you as you wait for him. My brother is a former Marine (Desert Storm vet) who is now working with Iraqi cops in Iraq, so I know a little bit about having a loved one over there. My thoughts and prayers are with you! I support our military 100 per cent! May God bless and protect our troops.

I just wanted you to know that I am lifting you up in prayers. Hang in there. My Dad was in vietnam for two tours. I remember very well how difficult it was on us and especially my mom.

Your sister in Christ,

Faith

How exciting it must be for you all to soon be back together for good!

My first husband was a cross country truck driver. He was never gone for as long as you have faced, but even after up to 3-4 weeks it was often hard to mesh all that had gone on in all of our lives. Time and patience was what we had to hang on to. Prayer is a powerful gift you have. Utilize it moment to moment and you will see results! (I know you already know that one).

Hang in there. Love endures all things. God already knows all that you have gone through and all that you face. He is bigger than it all!!

Keep focused on the Lord and He can heal all the wounds and unknowns in your marriage, family and future. My prayers are being lifted for your whole family.

Praying as you guys are reunited. It has got to be hard to make that readjustment so I am praying that God will guide you both in the reentry phase of this return and in reconnecting with each other and the children as he returns, too.

Your site is very beautiful and full of wonderful encouragement and support of our military. Thanks so much to you and to your husband for the sacrifices you make for the USA and the citizens here. I just wanted you to know that my family will be praying for your family!!!

I'm glad to read you're feeling better today. I really like your site. What a tribute. I will be keeping you and your family in my prayers.

I'm praying for you and for Jason, for his safe return, for your marriage, for your beautiful children, for your emotions, for God's hand upon your life. I know how crazy and confusing it can be when my emotions get out of control.

God bless you and keep you.

My prayer is for your husband's safe return and that, in the meantime, God will sustain you with the strength you need to keep things going on the homefront.

Though things may seem rough and anxiety feels like it closes in around you, run to God. He understands what is best. He knows like no other what you need and what you are feeling. He wants to comfort you and lead you through this toward His perfect will.

I'm praying for you.

Deanne, I'm praying for you too, today . . . So many "mountains" appear on our horizions and it brings anxiety of heart . . . But I have found God's grace is sufficient . . . His strength is made perfect in my weakness . . . With Him I can do things valiantly . . . Cry out to Him, read His Word . . .

My prayers are with you and your hubby! My neighbor's hubby just returned a few weeks ago and I know that for her it was an incredibly long wait. Hang in there, God has your husband in the palm of His hand--He has you and your little ones too!

First I want to say THANKS to your husband and to you. It is such a sacrifice to be separated, but what an amazing and generous spirit to volunteer to protect our country and to help others on the opposite side of the world to have a chance for a productive life.

I will be praying for your husband's safety and for an easy transition when he returns. May God bless you as you work together to build a strong marriage and family.

I agree with Linda a great big thank you to your husband.You are in my prayers and I am so excited that he will be home soon.

I just wanted to let you know that I've added you and your family to my prayer list. Hang in there....I know it must be tough to have your beloved so far from you, and for so long...but the season will be ending soon.

I'll be praying for your reunion to be smooth and peaceful and all things wonderful as you all become a family once more.

(You do have a lovely family!)
