We were told that if Matt goes into Intel like he wants, then most likely we would go to Quantico, VA; Lejeune, NC; San Diego, CA; Kaneohe Bay, HA; and Okinawa, Japan. He would sign a 4 year contract. Most likely he would be deployed at least twice, and at this point it would probably be to Afghanistan but of course that could change. And away we go. Funny enough, the Hawaii base isn't very appealing to me. I would love living in Japan for a little while, not permanently. VA and NC are fine as well. I don't prefer CA, but since his parents are there that wouldn't be so bad. To bad there are no Intel offices (or any offices really) in MI. That would be lovely. So I will quit trying to plan our lives and our future. You just never know. And of course, there's a lot that needs to happen before any of this even becomes a possibility.
Yes, it is scary. Yes, it is sad. No, I have not had a freak out or breakdown of any form yet. Interesting. It can only be the Lord providing me with peace. I know that He is guiding our steps and I would rather send my husband to physical harms way then for us to run in the other direction and away from God. Spiritual harms way is a much more dangerous place to be!
So here we go.
