Bittersweet Goodbyes.

Thursday, July 9, 2009

Today our good friends the Friedleins are finishing packing up and heading up to Quantico. It is very bittersweet because I am so sad to see them move away but I am also so happy for them that Jim is getting the opportunity to go to EWS (Expeditionary Warfare School) and that they wont have a looming deployment for at least another year. I am so thankful that God blessed us by bringing the Friedlein's into our life.

Job 1:21b- " The LORD gave, and the LORD hath taken away;
Blessed be the name of the LORD.”

I really don't have to wait too long to see them though because they are going to come back down here when I have Kenley! (That was my evil plan all along) :)

Here are some pictures of the last few days with Jim, Jenny, and David

David loved our trampoline
Here we all are @ the Payne's house this past Sunday night praying for Jim, Jenny, and David.
Here is Brian, Jim, and Gary doing "Amazing Grace, My Chains Are Gone" this past Sunday morning.

I never got a picture of just Jenny and I together so I will have to get one when they come back down.

It's not easy leaving Pleasant least it wasn't for me. Greg knows I would move back there in a heartbeat. I still miss you all so much!!!
