[picture taken last october]
[last november. they loved these chairs. at the same time.]
i've heard people talk about it but i have yet experienced it. until today.
the sad part about closing out a year.
for saying goodbye to friends that we've lived around for a year.
thankful for all that's been done in and through and around me, but still sad.
we had to say goodbye today.
it was hard. because they're going. and we're staying.
one's not better than the other.
and one's not easier either.
i could just boo hoo in my room all night, but in His provision [a way that only He could be thoughtful enough to plan out], this family is coming:
jason and malorie are here for a glorious week that i wish was a glorious year. [but i can't have everything, now can i.] and a much much much appreciated plane flight back WITH US to the States. they're incredible. and even cuter than this cute picture. i know, right?
thank you lord for doing what You do. for making things make sense when i thought they didn't.
thank you that with the going, there is the coming.
