A friend once joked that I should be grateful I didn’t know in advance what was going to happen to me. If I had known, I might have refused to show up.
We do have a choice.
My name is Lynda MacFarland. That’s Lynda with a “Why.” I am a wife and mother. My husband is a soldier. This blog is a continuation of our journey, first recorded in my book, Drowning in Lemonade, which was published in 2012. It is a story about faith, hope, and love in the midst of uncertainty.
Being in a military family is a vocation of service.
“Faith in God and faith in Jesus is what keeps many a Service Member balanced and many a Family intact. It is the wholehearted trusting in God that strengthens our spirits as individuals, as families, and as a Nation. Faith in God and faith in Jesus prevents us from losing hope in times of uncertainty.”

Whether we are members of a military family or a civilian family, we all serve. We all have hopes and dreams for ourselves and our families. We all have worries and concerns, and there are many reasons why our hearts may be troubled. Whatever your circumstances, whatever uncertainties you face, I hope you will find something meaningful here.
