Last night we had dinner with friends from church. We sat around the table with other staff couples in a home that was submerged in the waters of Katrina. When I got home this video was in my inbox. http://firstname.lastname@example.org
The evening was very bittersweet as we know these are some of the last times with our very special friends. We have built bonds over the last 2 + years that we describe as ones that "outsiders" can not understand. Although we did not experience the same devastating loss, we have walked a road since August 2005 that has strengthened our relationships in ways that we could not put in words. This video was a reminder of why the leaving is so hard, this is what has surrounded us. We are confident of this call but will greatly miss these relationships!
