Hi, I'm Mari Lei Lace Macapinlac
"Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths. "
- Proverbs 3:5-6
you’ll be home. I am too stoked for real.
-food..and lots of it
We will take advantage of each moment we get together, but in the mean time I’ll sit here and eat my ice cream. See you soon!
Is to be able to talk to him and even that is never promised. 10 more weeks and counting.
I guess I’ll just lay here and wait.
This blows. 😞
“Hi babe. idk if you know, but it’s your birthday on my side of the world. I know it’s just another day to you, but with out that special day 22 years ago, I wouldnt have met you . Have the best of wishes; not just today, but for the rest of your life. I miss you. I hope HE blesses you all through out your days…”
There’s more, but I don’t wanna embarrass the guy too much. All that whining from yesterday is totally erased after reading this. Even through the
distance and time difference we are able to push through with the grace of God. I have been blessed over and over and everyday with this guy.
Apo lohal. <3
I miss Hans too too much. We planned to celebrate our birthdays together doing whatever it is we were supposed to do. I would be able to give him his gift(s) and see his reaction rather than packing up a box and bringing it to the post office, we would be able to attend daily mass together and even more so, we’d be able to bring our families together to celebrate another year of life that God has blessed us with. Instead, we are 12 time zones away, 7,500 some miles apart, and 12 weeks (or so) from seeing eachother.
Whining aside, I do realize that everyday is one day farther from the last time we saw each other, but one day closer to the next time we’re together. So I will continue to do my best and patiently wait as I know he is as well.
Happy Birthday to you in 4 days. :] <3
I very rarely post about Hans and his deployment, mostly because I don’t wanna sound like I’m whining, but maybe just this once I’ll let it slide.
Today while I was at Denny’s with my mom and Sam Hans called me and of course, I answered. He greeted me with “I don’t have much time to talk..just 10 min.” One would think we would fill these 10 mins with sweet nothings and I love you’s, but rather we spoke like normal (..mostly about food :P), I gave a few words of encouragement and we prayed quickly before he had to head out to do what he has to do.
We consistently pray for swift days, patience, and strength.
After hanging up and giving a sigh of distress, i thought to myself how truly blessed i am to be able to have someone that is strong, not only mentally, physically and emotionally, I most importantly have someone who is strong in his faith. Someone who helps me strengthen my own and reminds me that His plan is ultimate over all else. For that, praise God.
My prayer now is that not only his guardian angel watches over him out there, but also mine. I pray that by the end of this mission I get a call and that I hear his voice on the other end. I am honestly so so scared knowing that he’s not secure and safe(r) within the walls of his base, but I know that every step he takes and word he speaks he is not alone. God is with Him calming his nerves and strengthening his mind and heart, but most importantly holding him safe in His arms.
My request is that prayers go out for Hans and his safety as he tries his best, along with others, to keep us safe. please and tanks.
