Its a whole new world.

So I have been dreading this day for months. The day my sweet hubby leaves. This morning bright and early (5:30) he left. Alone, with just my babe for 4 months. I feel so bad at times for even writing this post when I know that other families experience this for much longer, some as much as 18 months. But this is kinda of my first time. We were apart 7 years ago when he went into the academy and that was for 13 weeks but we did see each other for a couple of times. This time no weekend visits and where he is going is very scary. But I know many have done this before me so I can too!  This will be my prayer for Jay while he is gone:

Psalm 91

 1 He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High
       will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
 2 I will say  of the LORD, "He is my refuge and my fortress,
       my God, in whom I trust."
 3 Surely he will save you from the fowler's snare
       and from the deadly pestilence.
 4 He will cover you with his feathers,
       and under his wings you will find refuge;
       his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.
 5 You will not fear the terror of night,
       nor the arrow that flies by day,
 6 nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness,
       nor the plague that destroys at midday.
 7 A thousand may fall at your side,
       ten thousand at your right hand,
       but it will not come near you.
 8 You will only observe with your eyes
       and see the punishment of the wicked.
 9 If you make the Most High your dwelling—
       even the LORD, who is my refuge-
 10 then no harm will befall you,
       no disaster will come near your tent.
 11 For he will command his angels concerning you
       to guard you in all your ways;
 12 they will lift you up in their hands,
       so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.
 13 You will tread upon the lion and the cobra;
       you will trample the great lion and the serpent.
 14 "Because he loves me," says the LORD, "I will rescue him;
       I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.
 15 He will call upon me, and I will answer him;
       I will be with him in trouble,
       I will deliver him and honor him.
 16 With long life will I satisfy him
       and show him my salvation."

I highlighted the two verses that I will repeat over and over til he comes home!  I love you baby!

You have been in my heart all week. I cannot imagine the strength you must have to go through this. I pray that Jay stays safe and that his trip flies by. I am here if you ever need ANYTHING!
Love you!
