Leaving

Here is something that Lissa wrote recently. I think that it captures where both of us are right now.

Going

Unknown people

Unknown place

Every day

Is one day closer

My heart races at the thought

Excitement courses through me

A unique anticipation

Occupies my mind

And yet

As thrilling as it is

To go love a people

He has drawn us to

Going

Is also

Leaving

Loved people

Familiar places

Every day

Is one day closer

My heart breaks at the thought

Grief overwhelms me

A unique sense of loss

Inhabits my mind

And yet

As sad as it is

To leave those we love

His call beckons us

To go
