A Gift

Wednesday, January 6, 2010


This was my husbands Christmas gift from me. I wanted to give him something that 1. would make a difference, 2. that he could actually take back to training, and 3. that he could cherish for years to come. I know that I hit the nail on the head with #2 I just hope that numbers 1 and 3 fall into place the way I have prayed they would. My husband has not had a relationship with God since June 4th of 2000 when his parents were in a horrendous motorcycle accident and his father was killed; his mother almost died from injuries sustained in the accident as well. As he has told me many times him and God are not on speaking terms right now. Well since he has left to become a soldier all of this has changed. He now attends chapel every other Sunday and on the odd Sunday's that he does not attend he participates in a Bible study that him and six of his friends put on while sitting on the floor in the barracks. I truly believe that going through all of the mental rebuilding that the Army puts you through has made a difference and has softened my husbands heart to the Lord. I pray that one day he will have the relationship with him that he used to have.

I love those Bibles! I'm planning on buying one for SoldierMan for OCS graduation (he took his own to BCT with him). So, I held off on buying it the other day - instead I bought him Power of a Praying Husband by Stormie Omartian. You might consider that for Kiale, as well as Power of a Praying Wife for yourself. I've been praying through that book while SoldierMan has been gone and I can definitely see results! Not only through tangible blessings, but I can really tell a growth in my relationship with God through it.

I have seen that Bible and wandered if it was a nice one. What does your husband say now that he has had it for a while.
