Smiling through tears

The smile on my face doesn't really hide the tears in my eyes.

Yesterday we took James and Amber to the airport.

They will gone for just a couple weeks, but soon they will be in Russia permanently.

I miss them so much already.

They are two Christian soldiers on their first "deployment"

I am proud to call them family.

  1. I'm excited for them, but it still makes me cry for you. I wish all of my family could live on the same street! That would make me so happy. Maybe in Heaven someday. When we first moved here I was so excited I felt guilty for all the tears people shed over us. We'd worked 5 years on deputation and it was finally coming to pass! Praying for you. Love you, Maria
