Joining The Army
His basic training will start in June and after that, he will have 28 weeks of schooling, somewhere in Virginia. Yeah, that is long ways away from us. April does not know yet, if she can move to live on base, while Ray is attending school. In case she can, she and the boys will move up there as well.
Are we happy? No. Even though it may mean a well paid and steady income, there is a whole lot more to it, than that. We suspect, that after his school, he may be send abroad. That will leave April and the kids, three by then, completely on their own. I don't think, either one of them considered what all that means, or how it is going to affect their lives.
Yes, we fear. We should not. It may just be what they need to grow, take responsibility and be better persons for it. Only God knows and it is in His hands. That is a great comfort. There is no better place for it. :-)
For I, the LORD your God, will hold your right hand, Saying to you, ‘Fear not, I will help you.’
