I’m sharing a personal message today.
My heart is full. We enjoyed a family celebration in honor of my ‘caboose’, who leaves soon on a mission. Rich blessings have trickled in since my husband’s layoff, allowing his participation in important events such as care of our son after heart surgery. Miracles occurred in both diagnosis and recovery. Now the floodgates have opened and a new adventure begins. The story is much too long and a summary feels inadequate. I wouldn’t call this poetry, but indulge me in a few words to capture a measure of my emotion.
Saying goodbye is made easier
when care is entrusted to the Lord.
Son leaving for missionary service,
gone for two long years
just as husband’s new job,
appears. new city
After eighteen dry months,
manna from heaven.
