He Made It...

My beloved made it safely back to Iraq! ;o)
He emailed me this morning to let me know
and I just wanted to share.
Thank you all for praying!

"Blessed be the Lord, who daily loadeth us with benefits,
even the God of our salvation." ~ Psalm 68:19

It's so good to see photos of your hubby at home and nice to know he made it safely back to Iraq. You all continue to be in our thoughts and prayers.

showed the kids your honey's picture in Iraq. We are praying for him and for your family. Thank you for sharing. I just heard they are going to be pulling lots of our troops out soon. Hopefully that is true.

I am glad he got back to the sand box safely. I know when one is in America, it takes forever to get to Iraq. Here in Germany it's a 4 hour trip for the men and women going down range. Much better than 12 to 24 hour day.

How much longer does he have in Iraq?

God Bless You!

Thank the Lord that he arrived safely. I pray that you and your children are doing well.

Oh, thank the good Lord. I know that's a bit of a relief to know he's back safely. The traveling part makes me nervous. I will have to see if my mom still has your number on her phone, I know she has your email. I would love to get together sometime. After this weekend, things will slow down around my place, so we'll have to figure something out! How are y'all, by the way, and when is his tour over?

What a lovely blog you have! It's absolutely beautiful!

Is your hubby a Marine? I served in the US Navy during the first Gulf War. I spent a lot of time in the middle east with our huge MH53E helicopters. (I was a mechanic!)I was never in Iraq though, thanks to my gender! (Whew!)

GOD BLESS!! I'll keep your husband and your family in my prayers!

Bren ~ Thank you so much for praying. What a blessing it is to know!

Dawn ~ We're glad he made it back to the 'sand box', too. ;o)
It does take quite a while to reach Iraq from the U.S. I know he had a few delays and such but we are rejoicing that he made it safely. ;o)
We are unsure how muc time he has left. Lord willing, it will be sometime in January. ;o)

Kelli ~ Yes, thank and praise the Lord that he made it there safely. Thank you so much for your prayers. They really mean so much.

We are doing pretty well and re-adjusting. ;o)
I hope to hear from you soon. If you can't find my number just send me an email.

Michelle ~ Thank you for your kind words and for visiting me.
Yes, my beloved is a Marine. This is his first tour over there and a bit longer than the norm... and the longest we've been apart. But we learn to adapt. ;o)
Thank you for your prayers, too. They are greatly appreciated.

I'm glad he made it safely. I was looking at that picture and couldn't help but think what a barren land that was. In more ways than one.

I am so happy to hear your beloved is back in Iraq safely. Praying for your family the next couple months.

The encampment we went to is held at Metro Beach there off of Metro Parkway in Mt. Clemens, and it is held the last weekend in August every year. I guess this was the 14th year (first one we went to there though ;) ).

Tracy said...

Rejoicing with you that your husbands travel's were safe, and praying with you that he may return safely home, soon.

Sheri said...

Christina ~ Your family is still being prayed for and I'm thankful to know your husband made it safely back to Iraq... And, I so enjoyed your pictures, posts, and the special days you shared as a family during your husbands R&R.

HsKubes said...

Kristi ~ We're so glad he made it back safely, too. Yes, it is a very barren land... naturally and spiritually.

Amy ~ We're happy, too. Thank you so much for your prayers. They're such an encouragement.
Thank you for the info about the encampment. What fun! Who knows... maybe one of these days, one of these years, we'll be able to visit Michigan, again. ;o)

Tracy ~ Thank you. We surely are rejoicing! ;o) Thank you so much for your prayers.

Sheri ~ Thank you for praying. It's such a blessing to us. We really enjoyed him while he was on leave. ;o)

Hi Christina,
I am so happy to see he made it back safe. I have asked for prayers on my blog for your family. Bryan got orders to go overseas. But until he is on the plane we are going to get too excited. The army likes to change it's mind. You know how that is.

I remember those days, my DH went to Iraq when it all started (2003-2004) he had only been home exactly one year to the day from his tour in Korea (2001-2002)that he then left for the war... I truly believe the LORD used the one year in korea to prepare me for his tour in Iraq. I have you and your family in my prayers, now we fight a war that is spiritual as they try to convince us that ISLAM is the way to peace for this war....LORD have mercy on us.

Elizabeth ~ Thank you so much for your prayers. Yes, I do know how the military is. ;o) Y'all are in my prayers, as well.

Mommy ~ We're glad he made it back safe, too. Yes, a little sad but we're doing okay. I'll send you a photo soon. LOVE you!

Tumbleweeds ~ The Lord surely knows what we need to prepare us. Thank you so much for your prayers. Yes, we are fighting a spiritual war. May we stay on our knees in prayer.
