Less Than 30 Days...

...and my soldier will be home! I'm so excited and nervous and scared and.... I keep trying to imagine the day I pick him up from the airport. How will I react? It's been so long since I've seen his face...heard his voice....felt his gentle kiss. I just want to run up to him and give him a huge hug and will be an embrace to take your breath away. I imagine the people in the airport staring at us and seeing the obvious love that we have for one another and being envious of such raw emotion. I'm torn about bringing the kids with me to pick him up. I know they miss their daddy and want to see him first...but part of me is selfish and I just want to savor those first few moments without interruption or distraction. Just me and Quentin. Taking each other in...enjoying just being together....enjoying just being. Is that horrible of me? I pray that the time remaining till we are reunited goes quickly and that God blesses our time together. We're on the home stretch now! Hooah!!

Hey sis-

No no thats not horrible of you. Even though I realize that was most likely a retorical question, we are to love our spouses as Christ loves his bride, the church. So just to reassure you, its not horrible , or anything. Its beautiful, and what God intended for married couples to have. You both enjoy your time , cherish it, make the best of it.
Your love may serve as witness to someone unknown to you thats watching and wishing they can have the same. Your answer would be short enough. Jesus is the way the truth and the life! God is love.
You know it just doesnt get any better. Just make sure you catch your breathe after that kiss and embrace with Q before you try to speak :)
