A line in the sand

Today marks the end of a big chapter in my life. I had to say goodbye to a dear friend, and this was the real end. One last and final goodbye. Tomorrow will lead me to an unknown place… an uncharted territory that is more worrisome… a place surrounded by the realization that more of my hopes and dreams lied in Capt’ than I ever imagined to be true.

I loved him, but I needed to leave him.

I know this is good. Amidst all my doubts, and fears, and sadness, and regrets, and sorrow… I know this is good. I can see glimpses of His silver lining. This is His. And, for that, I will praise Him and thank Him for this day.

“You are my God, and I will praise you; you are my God, and I will exalt you. Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever….This is the day the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.” -King David

I will always pray for you and love you, Capt’, for I know that you are a cherished man of God. Thank you for the seeds you sewed and the plants you watered.
