Pass the kleenex

I'm finding it hard to sit and write these days. I think I'm in a funk because of the upcoming move. We have 6 weeks left. There are certain people and things I cannot think about right now without starting to cry. Example: On Sunday evening, our LTC group was at the building putting away and organizing all the puppets, props, etc. from our recent performances. It was a fun time of chatting, hauling boxes, props, etc. I was walking down the hall singing "Sanctuary" and as I passed one of the guys, he began harmonizing with me. That totally set me off. I had to run to the bathroom before I lost it. I guess I should explain that this fella is our worship leader and he and I share a love of singing. He had just been telling me earlier that morning that he was going to miss my alto voice... and that the last song of worship that day ("There's a Stirring") would have really whomped (my word) if I hadn't been singing. When I think of starting all over again some place new... I ache. Sheesh, I'm blubbering now. Imagine what it's like if I think too much about my best friend here.

Moving stinks! Packing stinks! Saying goodbye stinks!
New houses, new friends, new church, new blessings, change of scenery...those don'r smell so bad! God bless you in your move!

One of the Big Bites of military life. You find a place where you really click, and before you know it, it's time to go. Knowing it's coming makes it hard to get invested in any one place... I wonder if they'll ever get to where they don't feel compelled to move people so often, especially when the PCS is a lateral move (um, yes, I'm still a little bitter about being forced to OH, even though it tured out really well...)

"Whomped" is a good word. I like it.

I'm praying for you. I agree with SG, moving hurts. God will heal the hurt and bring you new blessings though.
