|My 2013 Kitchen Crew!|
Sunday morning broke early and my heart was heavy. Some of my dearest friends were departing that day and I knew it would take everything in me to not let the held back tears flow. I made it to the kitchen for chores and the morning of saying so many "see you laters" began. Hugs, and tears flowed freely and I kept praying for the ability to let these dear people go in God's hands. The season with these amazing people has come to a close. I know that I will again be reunited with many of them and I cannot wait for that day. I praise God, who we all believe in, that He will bring our paths together again someday even if I have to wait until Heaven.
The new season of my life started honestly with tears and pouring my heart out to God on my way to my parents house for a much needed vacation. I realize that so much of me was put in the security of the people around me, and to see that leave was frightening. In two weeks I will have a whole new group of students arrive and I will begin at ground zero. But I on the other hand, am a completely different person. God has shown me His love and grace over and over and over again. I have been pressured, chiseled and molded. I do not have to fear what this next season will bring, I only need to fear the One who created me! If I do not choose to see this as a growing season it will not be one. I know I will miss the people that God is using elsewhere, but I also know that God has me where I am for a specific reason. I may never know that reason or see the results but God has asked me to walk worthy of the vocation with which I was called. So, in light of this...Bring it On!!! :D
