I have always heard that statement but now I know that it is true! My sweet husband has been in India, Nepal, and Thailand this last week. I am so proud of my man and his willingness to follow our Lord to the other side of the world. I am proud to call him mine and honored to be the wife of this Jesus lover!
But, man have I missed him! This trip has been different than others that he has gone on in the past because I have not been able to talk to him much. I have realized this week how much I miss his phones calls in the middle of the day just to "hey". I miss talking with him at the end of the day when we tell each other what "really" happened in our day. I miss his smile and his laugh and the way he hugs me at just the right moments.
I am so thankful that I am my beloveds and that he is mine!
Going through this over this last little while has really made me think about all of the families that have husbands or wives who are deployed. I know that there are so many time when I have not taken the time that I need to to pray for those families as they are struggling through their time apart.
So along with my Monday counting of blessings I will also use Mondays to pray for families who are separated around the world. I will be praying for their strength, and peace. I will be praying for the safety of the loved one who is away. I will be praying that those who are left behind would be surrounded by others who are willing to help them and encourage them as they wait to be reunited as a family again.

One crazy family seeking to glorifiy the King in this crazy life!
Nathan aka my love
It all started at a revival where he was preaching and I was singing. We became the best of friends and later fell in love. Nathan is still my very best friend! We love to sit and "dream" together and stay up late to laugh. He loves the Lord with all of his heart and I feel so blessed to call him mine!
Our first born...he is adventurous and full of life. He may seem shy at first but just give him a minute and he has tons to say. His heart is as big as his giant blue eyes! He is artistic and creative and he is constantly working on writing books!
Our middle boy...he is as firey as his crazy red hair. He is as tough as nails and has a smile that lights up any room! He is our furture preacher and can be found found preaching from our steps many nights!
Our third little prince is still a snuggly little guy that gives the best hugs around. He is full of spunk and wants to be just like his big brothers!
Our Ugandan princess and the newest member of the K-crew. She is sugar and spice and everything nice. She brings the perfect amount of softness and PINK to this rowdy crew! We are so thankful to finally have her home.
Our sweet little baby boy who was born sleeping in October of 2005. We are so thankful for all that he taught us.
