My beautiful wife couldn’t stand the thought of me spending Christmas alone. So when she scheduled our EFV (Extended Family Visit), she sacrificed an earlier available date for a later date that fell on December 23rd – 25th.
This will be my first Christmas in decades that I’ll get to spend with someone I truly love. It’ll also be the first Christmas that Suzie and I will get to spend together in person.
EFV’s are so important and meaningful to us and our marriage. The precious moments we have are spent bonding, loving, laughing, and enjoying each other. We cook, clean, listen to music, sing and dance. We read the Bible, pray, and share testimonies. We cuddle up and watch movies. For 48 hours, we get to experience all the little things which married couples out in society experience daily.
I will be able to give my wife a hug without being told by a Corrections Officer to stop after only 5 short seconds. I’ll get to hug her and not let go until I’m good and ready to. Real hugs are a gift for my wife and I. Each one is filled with love and comfort.
This year I’m so blessed to have an EFV on Christmas. Suzie wants to cook me a traditional Christmas dinner and fatten me up with a variety of holiday goodies. I can’t wait! It’ll be a treat for me to get some real food in my tummy. This will be the best EFV ever!
Christmas is a special time of year, and it will be extra special because for 48 hours I will get to be out of my prison cell and alone with my wife in an EFV mobile home. And for the first time in our marriage, I will get to kiss my wife good morning on Christmas Day.
Please, if anyone can donate to our Christmas EFV, it would be greatly appreciated. Suzie travels from Utah, so any donations would go towards a rental car, gas, and groceries.
Thank you for your love and support.
May God Bless you and yours.
