Day #8 - Alone

I am on the 8th day of being alone, and I am very much looking forward to my wife being home. I love my boys very much, and I am looking forward to seeing them, but it is my wife that I miss the most. She has become part of me, and without her, I don't feel like a complete person.

This morning I was thinking about her and these two verses came to mind:

"The heart of her husband trusts in her,
And he will have no lack of gain.

She does him good and not evil
All the days of her life."


Proverbs 31:11-12 (NASV)

I think that it was the first phrase that stuck in my mind the most. In the NIV it says, "Her husband has full confidence in her..." and I do. Even though I worry from time to time that something might happen to her, I never have to worry about her. I don't have to worry about what decisions she makes, I don't have to worry about how she is parenting the children, I don't have to worry about how she is spending money, I don't have to worry about her.

But I still can't wait until she gets back.

Lord, bring my heart back safe.
