So, he managed to pull it off! He surprised us. We were leaving church last Wednesday. I walked outside to go to the truck and there he stood. I screamed… I dropped everything I was holding… I held him.
Never did I think that he would be home for Christmas. I was totally content knowing that he would be home after the first of the year. God works things out… far better than we can even imagine most times.
When we started this whole ordeal, I decided that I would let go and let God take care of us. I was scared of facing two years without my husband. Could I handle everything on my own; could our marriage survive being apart so long; could by boys cope without their dad? Now that it’s over, I can answer “yes” to them all. All the credit goes to God for getting us through each day and for bringing us back together again.
I can’t explain how much my faith has grown these past two years, but it has. I can whole-heartedly say that if you trust in Him, He will provide. It may be through friends and family, it may be through prayer, it may be however He chooses. We can’t limit God’s capabilities to ours. If you call on Him, He will show up!
I thank each person that helped us, prayed for us, laugh with us, cried with us, and encouraged us. We are truly blessed to be planted in this place. We will continue to do our best to serve Him. We have added to our testimony and will continue to share it.
