February 2nd

The darkness …

My children’s eyes were bright with wonder as I told them a bedtime story about a classic struggle.

The night sky was aglow with the shining of the moon. It out-shown the stars. It was a warm night. All was good and right with the world.

A slight breeze brought a coolness to the air. Off in the distance, a cloud could be seen coming from the far north. Before very long it filled a quarter of the sky. It was a storm cloud. It grew and became darker than the night. The bright moon was unmoving.


Drury returns from Iraq – family to leave Philip for post in New Jersey

The Drury family is excited to be united again. They are leaving Philip for Nick’s new post of Fort Dix, New Jersey. Nick Drury just returned from a six-month deployment in Iraq. Pictured are Heidi and Nick in the back row, and daughters McKennah and Meghan in front. The family is expecting a third child in March. Heidi, McKennah and Meghan lived in Philip near family and friends while Nick was deployed. Family and friends wish them well and will keep in touch.

Nick Drury arrived home from Iraq this last weekend. Heidi, his wife, had gone to meet him at Fort Dix in New Jersey, and family and friends were waiting for them in Philip ... so were flags and a welcome home banner in the front yard.

Nick has to report back to his post in New Jersey. The family will be moving with him on February 10, in order to get settled into post housing by his report date of February 20. The Drurys have two daughters; six-year-old McKennah and four-year-old Meghan.
