Two Years

Two Years.

Just think about that for a second. 

I've been sitting here thinking about those simple words for several minutes now. So many different thoughts have been rushing through my head. It's hard for me to figure out what to even say.

Two years to be away from my sweetheart.
Two years sounds like forever.
Two years feeling like this.
Two years for my love to share the gospel.
Two years to bring others happiness.
Two years to give up in return for my life.
Two years is nothing compared to eternity.

My thoughts went somewhat like this. I started out feeling defeated, as if I've already lost the battle. But after a while they changed into the reality of what's going on here. We have been given everything. 
How can I not give up two years with my boy so he can bring others this amazing gospel?
Or better, how can I not give up eighteen months of my life to serve the Lord?
These two years will be a major foundation for the rest of your life. 
These two years will push you to become the type of person the Lord knows you can be.

Enjoy them.

Here is an amazing song my friend, Shelbie introduced me to. 
I love how her perspective changes from the beginning to the end.
Listen to it!

Happy Waiting
