This Week’s Theme: Goodbye

Butterflies of excitement, the adrenaline pumping.

Aches of longing, all that will be missed.

Tears, some big and gulping, others soft and stinging.

This is it.  It’s really happening.  You’re boarding pass is in hand.

You’ve held it (mostly) together, but then that one word… “Goodbye” breaks the dam.

This week we’re going to dig into that powerful word.  Whether you’ve said it countless times or are just about to say it for the first time, this week is going to hold richness for you.

Today: Karen Huber describes “Dancing the Footsteps of the Long Goodbye.”  Come read the words of one who has done the goodbyes again and again.

Tuesday: We’re starting a new book for August!  Join us for the introduction of My Name is Asher Lev.  Discover the fascinating background of the author who was a gifted artist, and learn how he writes himself into the story of Asher Lev.  Is art a part of your story?  Come share a piece of your art work at Book Club!

Wednesday: Patty Stallings never ceases to inspire and challenge.  You won’t want to miss her wisdom when it comes to “goodbyes.”

Friday: Join us at The Grove as we all share on the prompt “Goodbye.”  Writing is a good way to grieve the goodbyes, is it not?  So bring your blog posts to link up and come join the conversation.

See you then, friends.

    I would like to participate, but usually only post monthly on my blog.
    Just asking!

    I’m facing the big goodbye in a few weeks and this has been very helpful.

    Just can’t get past that lump in my throat right now, but I remember the verse,

    “…who for the joy set before Him endured the cross” Heb 12:2
