Well, the big day finally has arrived. Linda is coming in tonight and I am happy to see that happen. Actually right now I am just waiting for the flight to get in, and then I'm headed off to the airport to go pick her up. Jason said he wants to go also, though he is asleep right now... guess I'll have to wake him up... ;-)

The day started out like most of the past Fridays, with Jason and I getting out of the house early to get over to the base for his formation. I was even talking to him, on the way over, about why they would still have this formation, this close to the holiday. He said he just had to go, and that the schedule is something that he has to work with. Anyway, as I dropped him off I said I was going to be headed back to the house so I could get a short bike ride in, and that he should call me when he was done. He was expecting to have to attend a training class or two, and that usually means he would not be ready to come back until close to 10:00.

As it turned out, about 20 minutes after I got back to the house he did call me. Luckily I had not gotten out on my ride yet, though I was just ready to walk out the door (actually just putting on my shoes). Turned out that there was an activity planned and for whatever reason the message didn't get back to him, or apparently several other guys who were all trying to figure out what was going on. Everything turned out okay. I still got my bike ride in, and this time I decided to go a little longer, since I wasn't concerned about having to get back to pick him up. The rest of the morning he just stayed down and after I got back from my ride and showered, we both took off to do a little Christmas shopping.

We were gone for a little over an hour, maybe two, and we picked up a few things. We got back to the house and shortly afterward a "new" refrigerator showed up. It is nice to have the refrigerator in the place where it is supposed to be, again. The rest of the day is pretty much just the two of us staying at the house, and me doing a couple of loads of clothes. Now I'm off to go pick up Linda. Thank you, for all the continued support and prayers and take care and stay positive.


  1. Hope you're enjoying your time with Linda!
    Psalms 5:1-3 Give ear to my words, O LORD, consider my meditation. Hearken unto the voice of my cry, my King, and my God: for unto thee will I pray. My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O LORD; in the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee, and will look up.

  2. No matter what happens, the Lord is our shield! Praying in Seattle!
    Psalms 5:11-12 But let all those that put their trust in thee rejoice: let them ever shout for joy, because thou defendest them: let them also that love thy name be joyful in thee. For thou, LORD, wilt bless the righteous; with favour wilt thou compass him as with a shield.
