Bittersweet

It’s really happening.
The attic is empty, the closets thinned. We’ve cleaned and sorted for weeks.
The sign out front says it all. “For Sale”.
We are officially in transition.
Life in Dallas is winding down. Life in Grand Rapids is ramping up.
And it’s bittersweet—really it is….

Can’t wait to get home. We’ve been asking God for a one-way ticket back for a lot years and a lot of reasons. And this year, He answered in the affirmative. Thank you, God.

But already anticipating the holes in our hearts and lives that will be exposed when we drive away and savoring the sweet people, places and opportunities God gifted us with these baker’s dozen years we’ve made a life here in Dallas.

It’s one of the most tender paradoxes of life, this side of heaven.
“Hello-Goodbye”…..
