Jenni,
I didn't realize how much I try to micro-manage my family until I left for Iraq. I have no idea what the little details of life are at home right now, and at first it drove me NUTS! Fortunately for me though, I have a wife who is full of grace and a God who can take care of the little things. Kendra does keep me informed about things very well, but I've had to learn to let go and trust that even though things may get done differently than I might have done them, that they got done, and God is in control not me. It has been a very valuable lesson for me as the leader of my family, and one I hope I do not forget when I get home and am immersed in the day to day where I can see and have influence over the little things.

I love this post man. Right now being in Iraq, I realize how true we need radical grace as a culture, and how we as Christians need to learn to give this grace with such fanatical abandon that everyone around us is affected and changed by it. I am an Infantryman, and being surrounded by Infantry soldiers in a combat zone, I'm struck daily by the amount of justice and judgment we want for others, but how we only want people to have mercy and give grace to us. The worst part of it is the ones that profess to be Christians are some of the most vocal about it! Now of course, I have to admit that I'm guilty of not giving such grace to the men around me, as I find myself wanting to condemn them for not giving GRACE! Wow, some cultural heart surgery is in order I think.
