I am so excited about this post. I wanted to make sure it was ok with hubby before posting it. As you know, Wade and I got out of the army last year. This was such a hard thing for us to do because we really thought we were in for life. We love the army and what it stands for but really felt God calling us to get out. We have always said if only God would open the door we would go back in. Well, God opened a door. We have decided to go back into the army as chaplains. This will of course take some time as Wade does have to finish his undergrad. He will then be commissioned and begin his Masters in Divinity. After that we are back in. There will be some training while he is in school and will be considered on active duty. I know that some of you may not understand why we are happy about this, but this is the life we love and God is allowing us to do this. Am I saying this is an easy life? Not at all. it is hard, the deployments are hard, but the home time is good. Just pray for us as we continue down this path that we follow the little light we recieve from God and give Him our all in this endevor, as He receives the glory. We get to minister and serve those who defend this country and that is a huge responsiblity! But one I am so looking forward to, as I do love the military and it's people. Thank you in advance for your prayers and support.
