Today Russ picked me some wildflowers. He’s so sweet to me!
August and the first week of September was really a whirlwind for us. We found ourselves in North Carolina, then back in Texas, through Arkansas and Tennessee on our way to Kentucky, then back through Tennessee on our way back to North Carolina…oh and we went through West Virginia too! Such was our life..I really … [Read more…]
I probably couldn’t write appropriately enough to express how grateful I am to our heavenly Father. He is more amazing than we give Him credit for, and I feel ashamed for every time we have ever doubted Him.
I sit on the semi-cool floor in an almost empty kitchen, drinking a little bit of pepsi, with my computer on my lap. It’s a hot day…high of 97. It’s cooled down a bit…it’s 95 now.
Sorry for the “boring” blog posts. I haven’t really been inspired to write anything greatly noteworthy of late. We are so busy! August 1-8 we took a trip over to North Carolina to visit Russell’s family. It was a very nice week catching up with everyone and I know they were all glad to have … [Read more…]
Russ and I are continuing to adjust very well. Sleep is still an issue, but we are working through it, and for the most part I think we are doing well. July really has flown by pretty quickly. We’ve done a lot of relaxation and fun, a little bit of hiking, a trip to the … [Read more…]
Natural Bridge Caverns, Texas
Date Night, Corpus Christi
disclaimer…I’M NOT PREGNANT! (yet hehe!) But it is a matter of much discussion in our household. Last week I was trying to explain to Russ the purpose of prenatal vitamins and the function of folic acid in the development of a baby. His response was this: “So it’s like yeast…to help bake the baby!” Then … [Read more…]
We’ve been having fun over the past few weeks visiting some of the BEAUTIFUL state parks in Texas. Here’s a video of fun that we had at Pedernales Falls:
wow…amazingly original title…ha! No I’m just tired and can’t think of anything better. Russ has been home for almost 2 weeks now!! (If you haven’t already, make your way over to the HOMECOMING page for some more details and pictures.) I’m just going to *attempt* to put the emotions of the last two weeks into … [Read more…]
I am kind of laughing at myself right now…it’s amazing how we can see the circumstances around us and long for something better or easier. Then, once we get there, we do the very same thing. Two weeks ago, I was at a point with both my husband and this deployment where I was just … [Read more…]
This song “Hero’s Wife” was a work of God. As a Ministry Team Leader at the website formerly known as Christian Military Wives – now known as Christian Military Wives Fellowship, I was put in charge of making a tribute video that would represent the vision and desire of CMW. As I searched for a … [Read more…]
I feel the need to blog this morning, and I have no idea why. Right now I find myself entirely frustrated with life. I am in no mood to encourage anyone, but I guess God wants me to write this anyway. I was awoken shortly before seven this morning (after being up until after midnight … [Read more…]
My current Facebook status says this: Aprille is pretty convinced that God really loves her. While the truth of my life is that God is good all the time, and that He loves me all the time, there are sometimes God uses little things to show me just how much. It all started with printer … [Read more…]
On Wednesday, I drove up to the battalion rear detachment HQ and picked up a paper copy of Russell’s orders. I can finally definitively say that we ARE moving to Kentucky this fall. Russ will be home early this summer. We will be taking a trip up to KY to find housing and then over … [Read more…]
