This weekend we celebrated. We celebrated thirty years of life. We celebrated with eating, with drinking, with laughing and talking. Like all good celebrations we celebrated with a party. We celebrated with friends, with family. We celebrated all the days gone by and all the days yet to be. And this afternoon as I stood in my driveway waving good bye to my best friend for the longest time, I was suddenly washed in a wave of sadness. Sad that our celebration had reached its end, yet with a heart so full from a splendid celebration. And as I stood sad and waving, it suddenly was there, Him, Jesus. And I was once again thankful that He never leaves me that He's always there.
Thank you Jesus, for always loving me, for never leaving me no matter what state I'm in. Thank you Jesus, for friends and their birthdays.....for life and life more abundant, for faithfulness and unending love. Thank you Jesus, that with you, I never have to wave good bye.
