On my mind:
In my world in this house I feel like I stand alone on a certain issue. My husband doesn't want me to talk about it and I don't know what to do anymore. I just feel hopeless about it. Its hard for me to not be able to talk about something, spill it in my blog (after all that's how we met... irony much? He doesn't even read my blog anymore) I was watching the Secret Millionaire episode this morning and Special Spaces I wish I could things like that remarkable and amazing... I am thinking of my friend that has become a new Mommy. Another acquaintance that I struggle with a lot that I just want to say WWYD? WWJD? I missed church this week due to the irresponsibility of my Step son and it made me VERY angry.

Devotionals, Scripture Reading, Key Verses:

Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time: Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you. 1 Peter 5:6-7

Confessions of a Military Wife by Mollie Gross is an honest, witty and often hilarious look at the life of the new generation military wife. Mollie, the wife of a former Marine Corps officer, is a standup comedienne and public speaker. In her book, she explores everything from deployment and the stress of having a husband in a combat zone, to the realization that marriage changes when your husband returns from war. Mollie shows that all women, civilian or military, can learn to find the funny side of anything by embracing the situation and changing their perspective.
