The Truth Is...

The truth is...
I am in a blogging funk.

The truth is...
I am still so sad for our friends, the Leyman family.

The truth is...
I have really been missing my grandparents. Sometimes I wish I could just talk to my Mamaw just one more time.

The truth is...
I haven't been taking pictures the past week or two.

The truth is...
I think it's because I have been having so much fun being with my baby girl, just the two of us.

The truth is...
It's gonna be just the two of us come late October or November.

The truth is...
Terry got orders to Afghanistan yesterday. He leaves for Afghanistan in November and will probably leave some time before that for training stateside.

The truth is...
He will miss Thanksgiving. And Christmas. And Madeline's 2nd Birthday. I won't go on because it is too depressing.

The truth is...
I have been in such a bad mood all day thinking about it. Sad and depressed and a little mad too.

The truth is...
They told us when we got orders here the bright side was no more shift work and no deployments - Terry has now gotten both.

The truth is...
They told Terry they would try to get his orders cancelled.

The truth is...
They told him last week that they had made arrangements so that he wouldn't deploy for at least a year.

The truth is...
I don't believe what they say anymore.

The truth is...
I am thankful to have such close friends and church family.

The truth is...
I have not one clue how I am going to work, go to school, and take care of Madeline while he is gone.

The truth is...
God already has it all worked out.

The truth is...
God will keep him safe.

The truth is...
God loves him more than I do. That's a whole lotta love.


The truth is...
We are gonna live it up until he leaves and have a big party when he comes home!




 "For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.

Jeremiah 29:11-13
