Well we’re here…in Japan…well Okinawa…this is real.
Since we found out about the move I’ve had questions coming my way. How do you feel about the move? Are you ready for this? When do you leave? Where are you going to live? Do you know what its going to be like?
For all these questions I never once felt like I had the right answer. Being part of a military family you really never know the “for sure answer” to any question until it’s staring you in the face. The best way I can describe it is it’s like blowing the white dandelion seeds. You’ll never know where the seed will go or where it will grow, all you know is you blew and now they’re gone. Sometimes its hard to except not knowing what will happen. Essentially we’re putting our lives in the hands of the Military and hoping for the best outcome possible. Not always the case. But what I’ve found in almost 7 years of being part of this “Military life,” is that for the most part everything always turns out to be fine. 🙂
Even though we’re never really in control, we always seem to get taken care of. I feel this way about my relationship with God. He is forever changing and shifting my life so that I may be the best I can be for Him. He never gives me a heads up about these changes or tells me how I will feel once they’ve happen, but when they do I know it’s his will and everything will work out for the best. Faith drives me to have a good attitude about the not so good situations. Helping me to be thankful for what I do have and seeing the priceless value of the blessings around me.
“God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, Courage to change the things I can and Wisdom to know the difference: Living one day at a time, enjoying one moment at a time: Accepting hardship as a pathway to peace: taking, as Jesus did, this world as it is, not as I would have it.” Amen
