Deployment Prayer

Dear Lord:
Give me the strength to say goodbye. Hold back the tears in my eye.
Cure my insomnia so that I may sleep alone. Give me a reason to awake when I’ve none.
Dear Lord:
Please help me pace myself. Allow me to turn to you for help,
And please let me be strong for him, Even if I’ve reached the brim.
Dear Lord:
Please make time go fast. I don’t know how long I can last.
This is the hardest time of my life, But this is my job: the soldier’s wife.
Dear Lord:
Let them all stay strong. Give them the will to go on,
And Lord, Please bring back all our men. In the name of our country. Amen.

Gee thanks, I needed a good cry tonight! I'm in denial so bad about the deployment because of this stupid BNCOC crap. It's not working for me. I feel like this is just a two and a half month separation and I'm blocking out what's to come.....
