He Gives, He Takes Away

Well, it is official. My BFF for the last 13 years is moving. 10 hours away. 

I know this is the best thing for her, her family and all concerned. 

I also know it is the best thing for me too. 

Because God wouldn't have allowed it if it wasn't the best for all of us.


But knowing all those things doesn't make it easy. Easier, maybe. But still Hard.


This is just the latest installment of this lesson:

"He gives and takes away-

Blessed be the Name of the LORD"


I am so grateful. So grateful for having a wonderful friend in my life to hold me up when I can't see the light in the middle of my sorrow. For someone who has pointed me to the truth, but also allowed me to point them there. We have dug into Him together and seperately on behalf of each other. We have pointed other people to Him together, and ministered to so many.

We have laughed, cried, crafted, sewed, and planned out hairbrained schemes and pulled them off beautifully. I will miss that.

BUT- I am so happy for her. She has hated living in Florida ever since I have known her. And now, God is letting them realize their dream. And I get to be a part of that, too. I get to pray for their success, and help them launch into a whole new world, a new life and new adventure. And for that, I am excited! I can't wait to see what God is up to! 

So although it is bittersweet, It is Good. 

Because God is Good. 

And isn't that how it always is? 

The Good and the Hard, mingled together, arranged together in a beautiful bouquet.

Transforming us into that fragrant aroma that is so pleasing to God.
