Breaking for Reunion...

The empty chair at the supper table will be filled.
"Mommy, I miss Daddy" will cease.
Sleepless nights alone will end.
After 12 months 2 1/2 weeks apart,
our family will be complete once again.

The house is clean, laundry is finished,
fresh sheets are on the bed,
Daddy's favorite shampoo and soap
are awaiting his first shower home,
fresh bread has been made,
Daddy's favorite meals are on the menu
(along with a favorite desert),
our home is filled with giggles, smiles,
thanks, prayers, and great anticipation
as what we have longed for is coming to fruition.

A bloggie break is at hand
and, Lord willing, the next time I post,
sharing photos... Daddy will be in them! ;o)

"Because thy lovingkindness is better than life,
my lips shall praise thee.
Thus will I bless thee while I live:
I will lift up my hands in thy name.
My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness;
and my mouth shall praise thee with joyful lips:"
~ Psalm 63:3-5

Thank you so much for your prayers!

First of all let me say, "Welcome Home" to your man. You visited my homeschool blog the other day and I am returning the visit. I really enjoyed visiting your blog and was wanting to add you to my friends list, but, can't figure out how to do it from your blog. So, if it's okay with you could you add me, so, that I can come back and visit.
In Christ,
Josephine (dixiecajuns)
