I had to watch our oldest daughter cry as she hugged her "bestest friend" tonight. She told her that she didn't want her to go and she was going to miss her. Her family is moving out of state tomorrow.
I too am sad, in the 17 months that we've been here, our families have bonded. Being in the military and trying to build relationships is hard because of the constant moving. However, since we began serving in the Lord's army, it has not been so bad. It hurt to see "Evelyn" have to do this again, well, it hurt that she had to do it again so soon. These girls ride the same bus to school, worship together, are in the same Sunday morning and Wednesday evening Bible classes, and have had sleepovers.
We WILL see them again.
Now, today's gift is the book titled, 'Created To Be His Help Meet by Debi Pearl' of No Greater Joy Ministries. I am currently reading this book for the 5th time! Each time I read it, I see something that I did not see the last time and think, "Oh! That's what I did wrong. Man, I'm glad I read this again."
And the recipient is...
