Too many goodbyes

Although these words are written about missionary kids (MKs), they would be true for many of their parents as well!

“Many MKs carry with them the scars from too many good-byes. They harden their feelings, put on emotional armor and turn inward in an attempt to insulate themselves from further hurt. They draw back from intimacy and remain in “emotional exile”—alone, separate and protected.”  James Gould

    This “goodbye” was hard. Blessings, and may you continue to experience His presence in the absence of people who deeply love and care for you and your family. But in those “goodbyes” you are also saying “hello” to some very special folks. SHALOM!
