My friend Rebekah, http://bekahsbutterflies.blogspot.com/, she's moving in a few days. They've lived at the base for 7 yrs now. As she was describing the excitement and even the sadness that goes along with moving, I felt my chest get heavy, and tears were welling up in my eyes before I even knew what was happening. I have taken a few moments since she signed off to figure out why I felt SO emotional. I think I know why. They are the last of friends who we're still in regular contact still at Ft.Belvoir and they're leaving. They're a connection of Jordyn. Although they've moved to a different place from where they lived at when we were stationed there.
I'm so happy for them, because they deserve a fresh new start, and being at one post for so long, is really hard. Rebekah's been my dear friend for 7 yrs now, and if anyone deserved a move they do. I'm in awe of what God's done in their life and so excited to see where he leads them to next.
As much as my heart was in my throat, as I've been writing this (I got distracted for a while! :) ) I am so happy and excited for them on this next stop in their life.
I'm amazed at how something that's happening to someone else, can bring on emotions you don't expect. It's amazing though and I'm always in awe of emotions and how God shows us the light, always when we don't expect it! :)
