Saying Good-Byes

The week has finally come where I will be saying my 'good-byes' to my closest friends. I am having lunch or supper with 5 friends in the next week as I attempt to put my emotions into words. My stomach will be full, but my heart will be empty as I say good-bye to people who have deeply impacted my life, knowing I may not see them for a very long time. This sucks.

In addition to all these one on one meetings, Mandy and I will also be getting together with families from the church in the next 2 weeks, and the whole church is hosting a going-away party for us this Saturday. We are full of excitement about the adventure before us, but simultaneously full of fear and trepidation as we enter into the unknown. This is by far the hardest thing God has ever asked me to do, and I move forward with much uncertainty. I can't believe moving day has almost arrived, as it seemed so far away for so long. Pray for us during this difficult time.

Well, enough of my rambling for now. My thoughts are just a jumbled mess.

  1. This is a hard time for you as you have impacted a great many. This can also be a wonderful time as you and Mandy begin another chapter in your lives, depending souly...on God and each other. I misspelled that on purpose.
    May God be with you both as you tie up loose ends and not bid farewell, but a see you sometime soon to those you love.
