Vacation almost over

Oh my, where has the time gone. It is monday, and in only 9 days we will be flying back to the States again. Hopefully with more peace and less trouble. We really enjoyed the time with my family. I do miss my husband though. We still have not heard about our new dutystation. We even found out that USAREC has not released us yet. Maybe God allows us to stay here for the rest of the 3 years. Wouldn´t heard my feelings. And I know the kids would love it. And, of course the best of all : Jason would not deploy again for the rest of the recruiting time. Which means no separation. Well, we will see what God´s plan is for us.
Salvation, what is that... A wonderful wise woman has explained it this way: If you have a serious sickness and the doctor tells you about a great new drug, you can believe him, but only believing in the drug will not cure you. You have to accept the drug to be healed. It is the same with Jesus. Only believing in Him doesn´t save you from hell. You have to know that you are a sinner ( sick ), believe that He is the son of God and you have to ask Him to save you, be your savior (accept Him ). It is that simple, and yet, people don´t want Him in their lives, or they don´t believe in Him. Are they not scared of the life after death? I believe what the Bible says about the lake of fire. It is terrible, and I pray for my friends and family to spend eternity with God.
By the way, I got highlights in my hair today. The brown hair started to be boring and didn´t look good. I want my blonde back. Poohoo.
OH, did I mention that my little girl had her 12. birthday last Saturday the 21. of November? She is getting sooo big. And Timothy is now 13 month old. Her birthday was great. We even made a nightwalk in the vinyards with torches. And then grilled bratwurst out there. It was fun. I love you, my big little girl!

Vacation in Germany

Finally we made it to Germany. The trip was rough on all of us. Let me see, if I can remember the details:
Jason took us to the Kansas City Airport, they made us problems, because the name on the ticket said Gohn, but my Passport has still my old name. They called the Airline to change the name and after 1 hour passed gave us the boardingpasses, letting us know that we have to get new passes when in Canada. After Jason left Timothy fell on his face and busted the inside of his upper lip. Bleeding on himself and me. Finally we got seated on the plane. I had an empty seat beside me and let Timothy sit there. He wanted to walk around, but they didn´t let him. So... he cried, almost the whole 2 hours off and on. Everytime he started again, he started bleeding again. Great! When we landed I told the people around us sorry, but they were nice and we were the center of attention, nice and very friendly attention. Finally in Canada we had to go through Customs, where a very strict officer asked me if I had a permission from the kids dad to take them out of the country. I denied ( being never asked that before ). Then he questioned Leeanna if her dad knew where she was. after getting our stamp we were sent to another officer, who asked the same questions. Finally they gave us new boarding passes. Now keep in mind, we had only 1.5 hours inbetween flights. Running up an elevator, down a hall, I realized that I had lost my new boarding passes. Frantically I ran to an officer and asked him, if he would watch my kids for me so I could run back and look for them. He told me to go to a booth nearby, they would give me new ones. We finally made it to the flight, just in time. The 8 hour flight was ok. Timothy went to sleep almost immediately, but since I didn´t have time to change his diaper, he pieed all over me. The rest of the trip was ok. I was beat I may want to add.
But now we enjoy our time here in Germany. Went shopping already. So, that was a brief overview of our flight.

Sunday Afternoon

OK, just a little note for my faithful blog followers, we still have no news. Poohoo. Well, it will be soon enough, I hope. We had a great evening at the Piper's house yesterday. Kids and adults enjoyed the huge bonfire and the hayride. Also the smores and hot dogs. It is great to have a loving church. Timothy liked it as well, was not even scared of the fire. OK, it is time to go to church. Hope everyone will have a great week. So long.
