Sunday our churches celebrated my husband's Call to them by hosting a farewell dinner. The beautiful flowers, tons of food and tears streaming down faces was a sight to behold! We thank Our Redeemer Lutheran Church and Trinity Lutheran Church for the years of hospitality in the U.P of Michigan! Later that day we hosted a farewell cook-out/graduation party for my 17 year old daughter at the parsonage... huge success! 120+ people celebrated with us and we even had three seminary friends (and families) travel to be a part of the festivities.
Then reality hits. Quiet. We are leaving.
My heart is breaking. Three months away from my sweet husband. I just want to touch him. Remember every detail of his face. Three months. Reality.
