Sad

There is not much more I can say. I'm on a committee, and we made a decision - or shall I say, a decision was made, as it was made not by us, but we were informed that it was made. (I thought that was the responsibility of this committee, so I am baffled by being told it as opposed to being able to discuss it.) But it is made, and it is final.

I can't talk about it yet, but it will become known over the next few days/weeks.

I'm sad about the decision. I understand it, but I am sad. It means a good-bye, and I am sad about it.

That is all I can really say. Even that is likely not allowed. But that is all I am saying.

I'm sad.

Another goodbye. And likely someone I care about will have their feelings hurt. I'm sad.

Missionary life just seems to lend itself to loss...and it's not easy to learn how to deal with it w/o becoming too hardened...Ecc. 4:3...a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance...

I heard a quote a while back from Beth Moore "Learning to say good bye is a necessary life skill". It is hard...all the good byes.
You are being covered my friend...
hugs...
53 days!

Hi Ellie
I can also understand this post even without knowing details!
We, too are grieving over loss and change...it is getting better...but sometimes very unexpectedly something will come up and I feel a wave of sadness overhelm me...takes time and lots of grace...which I am glad is an abundant element that God has given me!
