Farewell to Washington

Washington has been a beautiful, glorious rest.

From the sweet family we’ve spent time with, to the kind and gentle people we’ve loved, to the majestic mountains and woods.

Every day has been restful, a blessing in the midst of all of our decisions and emotions this month.

We’ve had to drive to find it most days. but we’ve even had the gift of a bit of Christmas snow.

We’ve had time to figure things out and find peace, and for that, I will always be grateful.

Like mountains shrouded in coming snow, our paths are sometimes unclear.

But we can be certain that a glorious path lies ahead of us, just beyond what we can see.

That’s what faith is all about.

I’m grateful for this place and all it has taught me.

Though it was only meant to be a small part of our journey, I’ll have it in my pocket wherever I go.
