Deployment #4 Underway


I have little to write right now, just that we're in the beginning of Deployment #4 and, as expected, this is harder than any other separation. I love Jonathan so much, my love for him has grown so exponentially, that this ripping apart just doesn't get easier.
We have a God who loves us all, and promises strength and grace for each day... and new mercies every morning. He is not unmoved by our frailness, and He is near to the brokenhearted. Right now, I cling to those truths.
And I cling to the beautiful pictures of all our final happy moments.

From now on each hour, day, week that goes by will bring him closer to being home again. You are a strength to your husband as you keep your morale high. God knows you can pass this with His help, otherwise He wouldn't ask it of you - and when your husband returns he will be proud to be married to a woman who will carry on despite the lovesick longings for him. But you have experience!! You have been down this road a few times already ~ God bless you. Keep being the strong woman you are. Cheering for you!! Love, Kristen

I'll be praying for you, Denise. While I'm sorry that these deployments are so hard for you and Jonathan, I also praise God that they are because it indicates a strong marriage! :)

As always, we are praying for strength and peace. You three are so strong and I admire you all for that!

LOVE the photos of Miss Elyana. You can NEVER post too many photos :)

Hi Denise! It was great to chat with you the other day. :) I wish I could've seen Elyana - she looks so precious in these pictures!
