My brother in law got a fabulous job across the country. Everything has fallen into place, every last detail, God clearly paved the way for all of this. In fact, when I first heard of the opportunity, I knew in my heart that he would get the job, and they would go. I had no idea the details would end up being so clear… or the blessings so abundant… but I knew. And tonight, suddenly, it seems very real. Five people that I love very dearly are moving a lot of states away (I refuse to even count how many states right now). And I couldn’t be happier for the blessing on their family, that God is so faithful in all things, and for this awesome job… and I couldn’t be sadder at the loss for all of us, for me!! Waahhhhh!!! Take me with you!
Don’t worry, I will continue to work on my brave front. I will not bursting into tears every time I even think about it (though it will happen sometimes). I know this is the right thing, that God has a plan. But “loss is loss and grief is grief” (to quote a favorite author)… and there’s no way around it, this is really tough. And it is coming up really fast.
