Letters From War

Feb 4

Honey,
Thanks for getting me some shoes. I will try them out tomorrow.
Everything is going okay here. I'm very tired and my knees hurt today, though. I don't think it's anything to worry about.
I'm keeping a journal here. So just in case anything happens make sure you look for it.
I'm doing my best to stay safe for you. I try not to go outside during the times I shouldn't. I lock my door whenever I'm in my room.
I have been eating pretty good and usually remember to take my vitamins. I didn't even remember how old I am when someone asked the other day. :)
I just wanted to send you a quick letter to brighten your day.
I think of you all the time.
I love you

Thank you for sharing these with us.

And you're welcome about the teen blog. I figured it would bless more than just me, although I was talking about my own teens. The universal truths of adolescence are pretty predictable. Sometimes.

Hugs to you.

*deep breath*

love, love, love these.

Becky said...

Prayers for his safety and comfort for you. ((Hugs)) to you, friend.

Alana said...

So sweet. How you must miss him.

Mama P said...

Wow. If it's any consolation, there are times I want to send my husband off to war so I can be ALONE.

Seriously, I'm sorry he's so far from you. Those letters are so sweet.

I wish I could help you. I really do.

Even though I don't know you. So that would make me a stalker.

Hmmmm. How about lots of thoughts and prayers???

Gretchen said...

Lord, keep him safe and return him soon, I pray. In Jesus' name. Amen.

mel, becky, gretchen, shauna = cyberhugs are the BEST kind of ever there were for me! (see my post about personal space)
becky, gretchen, mamap, shauna = I truly covet your prayers. I know that God hears you (and me too)
ALL = I WANT HIM TO COME HOME TOO
mamap = I don't think you have any idea what a ray of sunshine you are to me. You get my sense of humor, and always leave me a drop of laughter.

I can not add anything that others have not already said. I just wanted to say again that I am praying for him, you and the kids during this time.

Here is another hug! :o)
