quote of the week

“moving on is a simple thing; what it leaves behind is hard.” -dave mustaine

moving on and leaving people behind is tough. that shouldn't surprise you. it doesn't surprise me. i knew it would happen. but that doesn't make it any easier. it's still heartbreaking at times to realize i can't do some of the things i really want to do because i'm separated by 1,000 miles. well, 1,073 to be exact. i keep praying for relationships to develop and opportunities to arise for me to serve like i did in branson. i know it won't be overnight, so persistence and patience will win this battle.

i'm not homesick for missouri, but i do miss my kanakuk family. it's weird to not be there. i miss doing daily life with some of the people i love most in this world. i miss having the opportunity to serve them in small and large ways and be an encouragement in their daily life. sure, i can do some of that from afar, but i can't meet some of the simple daily needs like i could when i was just around the corner. sad day.

here's to embracing my new community and finding ways to serve where i am instead of wishing i could have what i had in branson.


live unashamedly :: laugh uncontrollably :: love unconditionally.
