It is with mixed emotions and a confirmed spirit that I write this.
Good-byes are never easy.
They mean an end has drawn near. Past, is the beginning and gone are new opportunities to share in the same way.
Although I don’t (truthfully) stop for Monarchs that fly into our motoring vehicle; I do react. I feel so bad, especially after learning about their journey.
A couple of years ago we watched a film at the Henry Ford Museum in Detroit, Michigan that mapped out the migratory pattern of the Monarch butterfly.
How this little creature with magnificent, albeit small, compared to the wings of an airplane, fly across land and sea to reach its final destination, fascinated me!!
Escaping our cold winters, they travel south for thousands of miles!!!
There are many threats along their journey with my vehicle being only one of them.
As I reflect on my time with WAHD, I am reminded that this journey has not been an easy one for me. There have been many times that I’ve questioned my sharing. It has taken time, commitment and dedication to write week after week. Sometimes, I would be walking through an especially difficult time in my life and trying to encourage and inspire was the last thing I could do. I struggled with your acceptance of my writing. Was this helpful? Relevant? One of my most challenging obstacles was being transparent and giving you a glimpse of my personal spiritual life, with a prayer, that we could come alongside each other and draw nearer our Jesus.
We know with confidence our journey on WAHD has ended. And we are so thankful for you, journeying with us. Thank you for reading. Thank you for sharing. Thank you for your unending support.
You have helped me in so many ways. My soul is changed because of this ministry.
With this close, the Lord has already prepared me by laying on my mind and heart ministries, I am now to move towards.
I look forward to the ‘next’ the Lord has for me!!
God’s richest blessings to you and yours as you journey on!!!
