Leaving

I didn't know this could be so painful. The memories are making me woozy with tears. I am redefining myself; my childhood is tearing apart. It's not even the stuff. I can do without stuff. The people have become part of me. Saying "fare well" to live bodies is so much harder than saying "goodbye" to a corpse. They are mourning as well. I am not as important as I once thought.

I'm moving. I'll miss you. Regardless of who you are and where, our relationship is going to change and I'll miss the "old" you. What we had was good. I have faith that what we will have is better. Heaven will be best, because we will see our Savior face to face, together. At last. Completely whole, together. Thank you.

Think of the icthys.

Disciples meet paths and share joy and then...they continue on...till the strawberry fields forever.

5(F) Those who sow in tears
shall reap with shouts of joy!
6He who goes out weeping,
bearing the seed for sowing,
shall come home with shouts of joy,
bringing his sheaves with him.

Psalms 126

You shall be missed. I have been blessed to work with you on the tech team throughout the years. You'd better still make it out for WorshipGod every two years...

You're going to have to post here more often- maybe even open a Twitter account! :)

Moving is never an easy deal - especially when you are leaving behind a church family you are familiar with and love dearly.

May our Lord and Savior ever be before you leading the way, providing strength, comfort, courage, and the palpable sense of His joyful presence.
