Flying South

Today “Dear” and I fly south to LAX. We had a wonderful extended Easter weekend celebrating our Savior with family and friends. “Dear” hadn’t been home to Seattle since January so his children were very happy to spend some face to face time with their dad. His close friends in the Seattle area were very happy to spend some time with him, also.  I always have mixed emotions when I leave one home for another. I know my children are being stretched and gaining a lot of experience and independence. The responsibility in taking care of our home in Seattle is on their shoulders while “Dear” and I are gone. These are all good things and good experiences for them, but my “mother heart” gets sore when I face being away from my children for weeks at a time. Then when I come back to Seattle and leave “Dear” behind, I’m torn in two again and “Dear” is left home alone. At least I’m in the position of being with him or with my children. This is where God has us at this time and we are all trusting God more and more for what we will learn through these experiences of separation and reunion. My time in the south with “Dear” will increase over the next year. This is more personal then I’ve ever been on my blog but this is where I find myself today getting ready for our 4:00 P.M. flight. Dear and I choose to trust and continue to be glad and praise God for all He has for us. Blessings on all of you and your families wherever God has you today!

  1. I can relate to your feeling of being torn when you leave home. I’ve been gone from Seattle for almost a year. I haven’t seen my children for months since I moved to The Netherlands. It’s very hard being abroad but I trust that my Lord will keep my family safe at home for the next time we can be together again.

    Happy Easter!

  2. Hi Jessica,
    Yikes, all the way in the Netherlands. I’m trusting right along with you in our Lord. Blessings on you and yours.

  3. All I can say is that I love you with my whole heart and I loved being with your whole family yesterday. I’ll miss you terribly, although this blog thing does keep me up with where your mind is delving (deep, deep), and I have always loved that the two of you care to be together. Love to you both. Go in grace. Choose joy. Honor the King.
