Pop, Gumbo and Global Warming

May 18th 2007 I graduated air force basic training exactly a year from when Molly and I would ecxhange our vows and move to Montana to be commited to each other. Its kind of funny being the only two southerners in this state (not really, but it sure seems like it sometimes). Saying coke instead of Pop gets alot of confused faces in return. Where the sign at the grocery store "southern style fried chicken!" is just a cruel yankee lie. Being laughed at by montanans when we are the only ones bundled up at thirty degrees farenheit (global warming is a lie it is 48 in june). On the other hand its fun to brag about seeing sandy beaches and allagators all the time, it makes Florida sound so exotic. Its ironic that Molly is more understanding of me having to work long hours (long) with the air force than I am about her working 8 hours a day at starbucks (her new store might as well be the military). She and I both have our long term plans involving degrees, careers and the military, but are excited to see how God will change our lives over the next two years (for example the last two). Molly never ceases to amaze me. She is living proof that our God exists. I see His glory all over her face. Just the wonders she has done all over the apartment, and all the wonderful food with southern accents that make me feel more at home. One of the first nights we were here we rented "O brother where art thou?" just to hear some southern accents. Speaking of which, Molly is insecure about "talkin yankee" which she isn't. We were joking about it and I said that when she works at the drive through she should say "whhoooooeyy hey yallll welcome to starbucks. thank ya drive up to the winda!". Everyday I learn something new about her and fall in love with her all over again. The truth is, I am absolutly head over heels in love with her. I wonder what ill learn today. please keep us in your prayers. We love alll of you.

Well Howdeeee!
I sure do miss ya'll (the "howdeee" was just for fun, but the "ya'll" was for real, that's just how I talk/type without even thinking). I loved your post, you made me laugh and smile!
