Military Wife – She Pays the Price for Freedom
Jill, another military wife, says, “I’m concerned about what our husbands will see and if they’ll come home changed.” But many husbands find that their wives have changed as well. These wives have become more independent, stronger, and maybe a little more stubborn. All wars are not fought by the military. Some are waged at home -- one day at a time.
Judy says, “My thoughts go back to the day my husband came home from the war after serving his country in Vietnam. As he got off the airplane, I ran to meet him with tears in my eyes and joy in my heart. He looked different; he was thinner and seemed quieter. Had he changed? Yes, he could never be the same person he was when he left. He had seen another way of life. He had been on a journey afflicted with sorrow.”
“The most important change is how we have grown together spiritually,” recounts Judy. “How did I cope while my husband was overseas? The power of prayer sustained both of us.”
