It's So Hard To Say Goodbye To Yesterday...

Tonight was officially the last night of summer for our ministry and, as follows, it was the last time that our eighth graders would be with us before they promote to high school this Sunday. Even though this was the 2nd group of students that have graduated to high school since I came to my church, the extra time I've spent with them has made it a little bittersweet to send them on. On the one hand, it's exciting to see the growth that has taken place and to look with wonder into the future with them. But on the other hand, it kind of stinks to know I won't be seeing them as much.

I guess that's how it's supposed to be though. Maybe if it wasn't hard to say goodbye, it would be an indication that I wasn't doing my job...

You're incredible at what you do, and I'm sure it was just as hard for those kids to say goodbye as well.
