I am happily married to an amazing military man who spent 9 years enlisted and is now an Officer in the US Army. We have two amazing boys who are not so little any more! They still infuse every moment of every day with creativity and energy, and make my life an adventure.  I was educated at home, and am now teaching our children - second generation homeschoolers! I try every day to become more like Jesus Christ, and to love like HE does. If you want you can try and catch me at bethylovesandy@yahoo.com

The Message translation puts it this way "God gives out Wisdom free, is plainspoken in Knowledge and Understanding."

Afghanistan

Andy sent me some pictures of his life, and I thought I would share them with ya'll. 
 The scenery is amazingly beautiful - breathtaking, if I may say so. 
 Look at those mountains. 


 Of course, I don't have to drive a truck across them, looking for insurgents, so I am allowed to only see the beauty! Besides, it is my job to find the positive, isn't it? So that is what I do... find the positive. Please, take a moment and revel in the beauty of God's creation. Andy took the time to take these pictures - even with his 12 hour shifts, 6 or 7 days a week those mountains are irresistible. (besides, an art major never stops being an art major, even when they switch to something else...) 
 Speaking of which....

Just thought that was cool to see - and glad it wasn't really needed. 
Thank goodness that is over with!!!  
 Last, but not least, I thought this picture was hilarious. Sometimes, when the planes are in the air, and the paperwork is all done, the crew chiefs have nothing to do for a couple of hours. They can take turns using the phone for the 15 minute, twice a week phone call they are alloted, or share the computer for awhile... but there are quite a few more men then there are computers. So, sometimes some of the guys just stretch out and take a quick nap. 

 See what happens when you are a heavy sleeper, and there are bored, immature guys all around you? Andy is really glad that he has kids, and thus has learned to be a light sleeper! Those are "Peeps" all over that guy. Andy said he ended up with "Peep" written on his forehead before he finally woke up. I said that was unfair, but Andy says that is the price you pay for being a sound sleeper!

The scenery is definitely beautiful. That guy covered in Peeps cracks me up! Thanks for sharing, Bethany.
