Forgive the cheesy post, but I do “goodbyes” better, like I do everything else better, in writing.
I am so very excited for you and your new job! I can’t wait to hear all about your ministry and I’m so thrilled this happened for you, it was a long time coming that’s for darn sure.
As you travel and settle in, and as you begin your amazing work, know that I’ll be praying for you and being thankful every day that we get to be minister friends even though now we won’t be able to hang out once a week since we won’t be across town from each other anymore.
Thank goodness we both have blogs, am I right?
I would like you to know that my year post seminary would have been very different without your friendship. I think it would have been lonelier, harder to process and a little less fun.
I know I would not have gotten as
much writing done, or discovered stuffed snow cones, been in a writing group with some of the best, rediscovered the value of morning pages, or navigated Baptist life as well as I like to think I have.
I’m so glad we are McAfee classmates and minister pals. You’ve helped me become a better writer, a better pastoral presence, a better friend, a more well-rounded reader and a better Zumba-er among many other things.
I will miss you being just w short drive away.
The very best of everything on this next part of your journey,
