|our calendar- with playdough covering our leaving date|
I don't want to candy coat this, nor do I want to dwell on hardship.
THIS SONG came on today and stopped me in my tracks. I'm driving and the tears are streaming down my face. So I have been hanging out in Hebrews 11:13-16 this morning. One of the perks of the job is how it forces me to hope for heaven. There is a day when we don't have to say goodbye! Hallelujah!
My kids get to grow up trusting Jesus to be their home- they can take their pain to Him- they can find belonging in Him!
I don't get the luxury of comfort. And that pushes me into the heart of the Comforter.
I get to meet amazing people. Even if saying goodbye stinks. My life is richer just from knowing them.
I get to be a part of something huge, and lasting.
It's hard. But it's so worth it.
Grateful that He sent a song through my ipod to remind me and refocus me today.
What are the perks of your job?
Oh, and another perk. The fresh fruit. Glory. Straight from the Father.
