Welcome to the insanity...!!

Well, we're 8 days and counting now, folks! If I sound a lot more chipper than you would assume I'd're right (because I'm not sure I've ever been more emotionally was a rough day for Joshua, too...). But here's the skinny: Joshua leaves for Columbus next Friday, his going away ceremony on Saturday, free day on Sunday and ships out on Monday. And by "shipping out," right now I only mean Oooooooooooook-lahoma. Where the wind comes sweeping down the plains. Where the waves and wheat...oh, wait. That's the musical...

As for the title of our blog (its late, and I'm skipping around in my randomness), it is very much something that we believe and are living out (as a matter of fact...we have it permanently inked in Hebrew on our bodies...maybe one day I'll bless you with the pictures *wink*). No matter WHAT happens...we know God is in this. And because He's in us, we have never felt so hopeful in what sometimes feels like a hopeless situation. For sure, people deploy every day. But the personal impact of its reality is far different to deal with than the idea or the possibility. So, we're learning and coping and growing through this process. Without a doubt, we are being stretched in our faith daily...which is always a journey anyway!

I hope you'll enjoy the ride with us...
