And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will himself restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish you.
Sadness fills your eyes.
Tears fill mine.
Our love is so true,
So sweet, so divine.
In your arms I feel so helpless
Yet at the same time so safe.
Of all in the world
There will never be another to take your place.
I remember our first glance,
Our first touch, and first kiss.
With all that’s being taken from me
It’s your warmth I will miss.
I’ll be here when you get back,
And all our dreams will come true.
But don’t forget, while you’re gone,
I’ll always love you.

You have no choice but to be strong. Strong for yourself and strong for him. It’s the distance that’s so hard but it’s also a test of the love you both share. You never feel whole because your heart is hundreds to thousands of miles away. It’s like you’re in two totally different worlds yet so strongly connected by love.
He’s fighting that battle in the dessert, but you’re home fighting a battle as well. He’s trained for combat while you’re training your emotions. You cherish every letter and every phone call because in that short amount of time he doesn’t seem so far away.
Some say time is just an illusion but in the eyes of a Marine girlfriend, it’s a way of life
Your prayers become ordinance, for his safety. You hate that he’s gone but your so proud of what he is. He is the object of strength. In the eyes of many he’s an angel, a warrior & a hero…
But for you he’s the love of your life, the future father of your kids, your hearts keeper & the man you want to spend the rest of your life with. & the day he becomes your husband will be his highest rank he could ever receive.
