Update

Well, Dave is headed to IHC today. Ashley is on an airplane as I type this to fly to Dayton. Carrie is still on choir tour and will be arriving in Dayton on Wednesday! I am at home waiting. On what? That would be the military to decide which day they will be flying home a certain young man!!! Yes - as is the usual case - the plans have changed so this family is taking flexibility to an all new level! I can't seem to think of a single one of us (Christa and Josh included) who are thrilled beyond words but since we are not the "head honchos", I don't think it matters a whole lot what we think!! Anyway, just a quick update and if the members of this family come to your mind, please pray for an extra large dose of grace and sanity. For reasons that should be obvious, we are all running a little short in those two areas! Ok - that was speaking for everyone which is probably not a good idea! I just thought that if I included all of us, the one who is really stressed (me!) wouldn't feel so guilty!!

Dear Leah,

Hi girlfriend, just wanted to drop you a line and let you know that I am thinking of you and praying for you everyday !! I will give Carrie and Ashley hugs when I see them Thursday at IHC. We really need to get together when I get back.

Hey! Since we're both virtually attending IHC, here's a virtual wave to ya across a virtual aisle! o/ We haven't been there for a long time and wanted so badly to attend last year and then again this year, but Ken's company has changed their week for inventory to this week and nobuddy can be off during inventory. Thank God for technology!! The streaming video is great.

About this time last year our family was waiting for Paul Jr to return home from Iraq. He got home on Fri and was at IHC Tue! If you saw any pics of last year's patriotic service, he was the lone sailor (in his dress whites). Waiting's never easy. Been thinking of you all lots and asking the Lord to 'specially watch over all of you. * hug *
