...And you wonder where we're going;  Where's the rhyme?  Where's the reason?...






It's probably been pretty much the same for women who have waited at home while their men went off to war since the beginning of so-called "civilization." I can't imagine that my experiences differed too much from those of wives in both previous and more recent times, except that Vietnam was an unpopular war, perhaps making it a bit tougher on the families just as it did on the actual participants.

Writing this in 2000 brought both smiles and tears, and it also served to help put so many things into perspective.  Though the aftermath of PTSD keeps this time ever-present in our lives, we have learned to trust Christ Jesus for each day and what it brings.  I pray for peace and safety for all vets, their wives and families.

"Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving
let your requests be known to God.  And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."  Philippians 4:6,7
