Today’s Prompt: Good-bye
I’ve never cared for good-byes. Airports are bittersweet for me. I love watching reunions but I hate seeing the good-byes. Saying good-bye to my mom when she died was the hardest good-bye I’ve ever had to say. And yet,at the same time, it was also the most hope-filled goodbye I’ve ever experienced. I once shared the good-bye note my mom left us when she died. You can read that post here.
The portion of the note that I can repeat by heart are the last three sentences.
I am not alone. I have crossed over from death to life, and at this very moment, as you read these words, I am with my Savior, our Lord Jesus.
I’ll be waiting for you here.
I am thankful that, in Christ, good-byes are only temporary. The waiting is hard some days, but the hope we can grab hold of while we wait brings so much comfort and peace.
