September 13, 2009 Romani 12:12...
Romani 12:12 (AKA Romans 12:12 Says, "...rejoicing in hope, patient in tribulation, continuing steadfastly in prayer..."
Life is full of so much change. I have always been challenged by the "hellos and goodbyes" of life, sometimes by death, sometimes by moves, sometimes by a change of interest, sometimes just because.
Today is the last day a cousin-friend of ours will be living in our small town. She will be leaving very early in the morning to move to Milan. We will miss her very much. She is great with my kids, is a sweetheart, and is a part of this community. It will be odd not having her around, maybe indefinitely, but I do not mourn her going. Rather, I just want her to always remeber that wherever she goes she is not alone. I, we, desire that "God protect her, keep her, make His face shine upon her and be gracious to her, and that He give her peace", but we also look forward to seeing the growth and maturation that will become "her" while away from all she has ever known.
God go with you, Titzy. Vi vogliamo tanto bene!!! (We love you so much, T...)
