I've finally come to this place of complete peace in what is taking place in my life. The house is empty and it feels good! I'm ready to move on. Last night I went to bed very early and just rested. That felt really good! I can't remember the last time I got to do that. I know my husband is really anxious for us to join him. In fact, we are both counting down the days. That feels good, too!! I can't think of anywhere else I'd rather be than with him!
Sunday evening some very good friends of mine had a farewell party for me. They are very special people in my life, and it was good to spend the evening together. They wanted to know what life was like for my husband now, and it was very exciting to get to tell them all about it. It's so encouraging to have their support, knowing full well they could have chosen not to give it when he told them he would no longer be able to be their pastor. I cried a lot, but that's OK. They mean a lot to me and they're worth the tears! My life is forever changed by knowing them. I can't imagine what my life would be like if I hadn't known them and been touched by their unconditional love and friendship. As I said my good-byes, I felt at peace with leaving.
