My brother, Jason, got in Saturday evening. He was away training for his deployment to Iraq. He'll be home for 2 weeks and then deployed. It's a bitter/sweet thing. I am so sad that we only have 2 weeks with him, but I'm also very proud of him.
If I dwell on it too much I cry. So I'll be brief. We are planning to move to Australia this summer, Lord willing. Which means we'll probably not see him until we come home on furlough. That makes me sad. I am very close with my dad and brothers. I know without a doubt that God wants us in Australia, but I will miss my family. One thing that helps me get through the sadness is knowing that my family have all accepted Christ as their Savior and after this life not only do I get to spend eternity with my Lord, but I'll also get to spend it with my family!
