Sorry, this blog post is kinda on a sad topic... Saying goodbye.
A friend of mine showed me the song "Say Goodbye" by Skillet, and it got me thinking about saying goodbye again, and why it hurts...
I wrote a poem thinking about that a few months ago: Not Meant To Say Goodbye .
Sometimes you have to go searching instead of saying goodbye.
|This shell was a gift to a dear friend of mine when we had to part for an undetermined amount of time.|
"From Christian to Christian life is only full of temporary goodbyes..."
That's what makes me smile, even when missing people makes me want to cry... Even as I get older, busier, and friends do the same, I remember that the friendships we have here are only a reflection of what we will have in glory... Until then I have to trust that the friends I love belong to God first and He can take our friendships where He wills.
