There are some goodbyes that are too hard for words. Last night proved to be one of those. But if I could have told you what I wanted you to know, I would have said that despite how my flesh feels about you leaving, and the hole that will be in our lives without you here, your decision to Go and your desire to follow God's calling despite the hardness, is something that will fill that hole with an example. And not only us, but the boys will be able to see and understand what it means to sacrifice in the midst of love and follow the Lord. We love you as an example of a Godly marriage, we love you as parents, and we love you as grandparents to our sons.
I still cannot find the words to say, but this song was going through my mind all night. I sing it to the boys a lot. The Lord asks us to do much...but there is never a shortage to grace to do what
He asks. Like a shepherd He leads us, but although it appears that He leads in different directions, we are all part of his flock and all walking together in His will; no matter how far apart we seem.
We love you both. Grace be with us all.
