Always Hard to Say Goodbye

A young man who has been in my husband's T & T group in Awana was also in the group of children I oversaw during Vacation Bible School this past summer. Due to the closing of the business his father worked at in this town, the young man and his family are moving far away to where his father was transferred.

Though he has had his moments, like any little guy does, I had been observing some nice signs of maturing and I really think the world of him. He hasn't been in Awana this year and I have missed seeing him. I pray that the Lord blesses his family in their new home and that He enables this sweet young man, his immediate family, as well as his cousins and aunts and uncles, to endure this difficult parting.

I love this hymn. It expresses the promises I am assured of by my Lord - the promises of which I have become convinced.

What A Day That Will Be

There is coming a day
When no heartache shall come
No more clouds in the sky
No more tears to dim the eye
All is peace for evermore
On that happy, golden shore
What a day, glorious day that will be

What a day that will be
When my Jesus I shall see
And I look upon His face
The One who saved me by His grace
When He takes me by the hand
And leads me through the Promised Land

There'll be no sorrows there
No more burdens to bear
No more sickness, no pain
No more parting over there
And forever I will be
With the One who died for me
What a day, glorious day that will be
