He's Home and Menu Monday

Well...we've survived another deployment!!  You might think that each time it would somehow get easier but it definitely doesn't.  Each time brings its own unique challenges but God is good and I'm ever so thankful for His grace!! 

 
Without getting into all the crazy military lingo, while this wasn't our first deployment, but it was our first time to have the opportunity to be pier side when the ship pulled back in!  It was SUCH a neat experience and I'm so thankful we got to do it!
 
Here you can see the boat as they were almost pier side!  They had been "manning the rails" or standing around the perimeter like that for quite a long time!!

This is us waiting thru all the stuff that has to be done before they are allowed off the boat.  Hubby was standing directly in front of us!!  We could see him and he could see us!! 

My first hug!!!

This time is definitely different in that hubby is stationed about 6 hours away from us.  So he got to come home for 2 weeks and then had to go back to the ship.  The ship schedule is very demanding and not always flexible at all but we are hopeful that we will get to spend at least a few days a month together while they are in port.  Certainly not easy but we are confident that we are walking the path that God has called our family to and so we are walking in trust.  Trusting that God's plans for our family (while hard to see or understand right now) are good and looking forward excitedly to the day our family can be under the same roof again!!
 
While home on leave,  John laughed one day and told me that one of his favorite things he'd seen since being home was the menu on the fridge from the end of March!!  Haha!!  Oops!  So I figured it was time to get it together and get back to menu planning!! ;)

But he said to me, "my grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness."  Therefore, I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses so that Christ's power may rest on me.

Assalamualaikum Salam sejahtera untuk kita semua, Sengaja ingin menulis
sedikit kesaksian untuk berbagi, barangkali ada teman-teman yang sedang
kesulitan masalah keuangan, Awal mula saya mengamalkan Pesugihan Tanpa
Tumbal karena usaha saya bangkrut dan saya menanggung hutang sebesar
1M saya sters hampir bunuh diri tidak tau harus bagaimana agar bisa
melunasi hutang saya, saya coba buka-buka internet dan saya bertemu
dengan KYAI SOLEH PATI, awalnya saya ragu dan tidak percaya tapi selama 3 hari
saya berpikir, saya akhirnya bergabung dan menghubungi KYAI SOLEH PATI
kata Pak.kyai pesugihan yang cocok untuk saya adalah pesugihan
penarikan uang gaib 4Milyar dengan tumbal hewan, Semua petunjuk saya ikuti
dan hanya 1 hari Astagfirullahallazim, Alhamdulilah akhirnya 4M yang saya
minta benar benar ada di tangan saya semua hutang saya lunas dan sisanya
buat modal usaha. sekarang rumah sudah punya dan mobil pun sudah ada.
Maka dari itu, setiap kali ada teman saya yang mengeluhkan nasibnya, saya
sering menyarankan untuk menghubungi KYAI SOLEH PATI Di Tlp 0852-2589-0869
Atau Kunjungi Situs KYAI www.pesugihan-uang-gaib.blogspot.co.id/ agar di
berikan arahan. Supaya tidak langsung datang ke jawa timur, saya sendiri dulu
hanya berkonsultasi jarak jauh. Alhamdulillah, hasilnya sangat baik, jika ingin
seperti saya coba hubungi KYAI SOLEH PATI pasti akan di bantu Oleh Beliau
