Sketchy Internet and Update

Since returning from my aunt's house in Indiana, internet has been sketchy at my parent's house.  I could not get pages to fully load, let alone trying to upload pictures.  I am happy to say that it looks like things are back to normal, at least for now.

We have now been in the states visiting family for the last eight weeks.  Wow, has it really been that long?  I can't believe how time has flown already.  We are drawing near the end of our trip and in just under three weeks, we will be heading back to Korea for the rest of my husband's tour.

BUT not before my husband comes to the states for a few weeks of R&R.  He has been trying to get out of Korea for the last day and a half.   There was suppose to be a promising flight today, but it appears that it has now been delayed.  I am hoping only for a few hours and not a few days. 

There is also another possible flight that is heading CONUS (Continental USA) that he might be able to jump on.  We are just waiting things out and I am hoping that by the time I wake up tomorrow, I will have some good news.

We are all anxious for Angel (aka Daddy) to get here and join us.  Most, if not all, of us are not looking forward to returning to Korea.  We like living in the USA too much.  I pray that this next year flies by quickly.

Our trip to Indiana

Last week, early on Sunday morning, my parents, the girls and I loaded up in two cars and headed out for a 10 plus hour trip to Indiana.  My dad's sister lives in Fort Wayne but also has a lake house not far from there in Columbia City...and that's where we were going. 

For the most part the trip was uneventful.  We stopped a few times for potty breaks or to switch passengers and/or drivers along the way.  We were more than ready to get out of the car and when we arrived to the lake house, the adults were left standing at the cars while the kids had taken off in search of some fun.

My sister and her family had made the trip west a few days earlier and were already enjoying lazy days at the lake.  It was a nice time to get away from Pennsylania and to visit with family that we have only seen once a year for the past 10 years.  My aunt and uncle were gracious hosts and we enjoyed ourselves at their lake home.

Happy Indpendence Day!!

As I drove around my parents' town this weekend, I saw an large number of flags.  Some where waving from peoples porches, while others were stuck in the ground, put there in honor of someone who gave their life for our freedom. 

So many times we take for granted our freedom in the USA.  We wave our countries flag around without taking into consideration the cost to obtain those stars and stripes....the ultimate price that was paid for our freedoms....lives have been lost. 

In the same way, Christ willingly gave His life so that we might be free. 

It is for freedom that He (Christ) set us free.  Galatians 5:1

May we live our lives not held in slavery or bondage to the things of this world, but  may we live as one who is free.

Thank you to those who paid the ultimate sacrifice for our nations freedom.

Thank you Jesus for the freedom that we have in a relationship with you.

No internet

This past week I was in a location that did not have internet.  We are back at our "base camp" (aka, my parents' house) so I will be able to upload my posts regularly now.
