A new mission

Well, we have a new mission. This one includes the family I fear. DH is on "standby" of sorts. I don't really think about it daily but I am reminded in tiny moments that he could be swept away with a phone call.

Our marriage has never been typical. Our home life is always different. I think I resent that at times and other times I relish in it. This mission is no different.

Either way it is reality, and one I cannot change. So I will add this to my list of prayer requests and go on as all good army wives do. Or more importantly I will remain thankful for each moment and not complain about the things I do not have. I will pray for a contented heart and find joy even in my trials.

That is so much easier to type than do.


  1. Kenna!! I kept meaning to ask if you were Sgtzapple, and now I know for sure!

    I'll put your prayer request on my prayer request list too. There is something about being on standby that is just unsettling.

  2. Kathryn,
    I thought maybe you didn't know since I rarely use my first name and try to keep family names out of the blog as well. But I do read yours every time you post since I check it in Google reader with the other blogs I read.

    I love your pictures.
