a time to laugh. a time to mourn. a time to work. a time to play.......
Our season of life in Memphis is drawing to a close. It's been a sweet season for me; chock-full of loving kindred-spirits and new forever friends. But we've also shed tears as our friends marked the first birthday of their baby boy who lived only a few short days....because we bear one another's burdens. Laugh together and weep together. It's the blessing of community, especially here.
But the chapters that lay before us hold great potential. Potential of putting down roots and home-buying. Potential of growing in love for old friends and new. Potential for playing in the sprinkler and picnics on the grass. Great things are ahead, I can feel it.
So here's to the days ahead. I'll raise the proverbial glass to welcome our new season and to fondly remember our time as Memphians.
