Goodbye

Tonight we sent the Westside church. None of them will come to Northside anymore. Saying goodbye is so hard. Even when I know its not like I'll never see any of them ever again, just knowing that we don't go to the same church anymore makes me sad. I was definitely trying not to cry, but when all the Westside people went up front... I couldn't help myself. I will miss them so much. If any of the people who are part of the Westside church are reading this, I love you guys and I miss you already!

Quote of the post:
“Why can't we get all the people together in the world that we really like and then just stay together? I guess that wouldn't work. Someone would leave. Someone always leaves. Then we would have to say good-bye. I hate good-byes. I know what I need. I need more hellos.” -Snoopy

"Goodbye", under the circumstances, is the best word you can use. It's originally a contraction of "God be with you." Sad, indeed, but we cannot wish anything better for friends in Christ. Fewer than ten years after Southside church was sent off, they were larger than Second. May God bless this congregation likewise!

I heard about it a little bit... I would have cried probably, even though it wouldn't have made a difference for me. I'm sad for you guys... but happy for Avon, also. i heard someone went around saying to people who were crying, "Common! It's not like they're moving to Australia."

:-P

I'm still waiting for pictures!!! Hopefully we'll talk for REAL this week. Love you! :-)
