I'm back

I know I haven't posted in a while. Don't worry, I'm okay. I was on R&R leave back in the US, spending a couple of weeks with my wife and kids. It was a really nice visit, but I'm back in Iraq now.
As for the visit, it was great. I spent most of it just hanging out with the family. It was my son's birthday, so he got to teach me all about his new Nintendo Wii. Also, since it was his 8th, we did his baptism. I'm truly thankful for the opportunity to do this. I was able to perform the baptism while my brother was one of the witnesses. Again, I'm thankful for this.
I truly appreciate everyone's posts. It takes real character to be so honest and open, and it helps me get through it, one day at a time, to know that there are others out there going through the same thing.
Prayers and best wishes for all of you.



Welcome Back!    
"I'm glad you're posting here again, but I'm even happier that your doing well and you got to baptize your son. Your success gives me a lot of hope for my own recovery.

I know I've said this before, but I can't help but feel grateful for people like you who sacrifice so much to serve our country. I really respect your willingness to leave your family and serve so selflessly."

"Lucifer will do all in his power to keep you captive. You are familiar with his strategy. He whispers: “No one will ever know.” “Just one more time.” “You can’t change; you have tried before and failed.” “It’s too late; you’ve gone too far.” Don’t let him discourage you. When you take the path that climbs, that harder path of the Savior, there are rewards along the way. When you do something right, when you resist temptation, when you meet a goal, you will feel very good about it. It is a very different kind of feeling than you have when you violate commandments—an altogether different feeling. It brings a measure of peace and comfort and provides encouragement to press on. "
