Sometimes we get to see a person demonstrating obedience to God. The places He takes us aren’t very often what we would have dreamed up – but there you go – God’s ways sure are not like ours.
Randall resigned this morning. He’ll be off to a new place soon. In a field. We may have to write a new version of "The Church in the Wildwood" if you are old enough to know how that one goes. At least his neighbors will be quiet – or far enough away that they can party and he’ll never know.
We have learned so much from God as he has pastored our church. Now, I guess, God needs him somewhere else for a bit. We send him off with blessings and prayers and a lot of tears. But it will be good. If God is in it, it will be good.
But it is hard saying farewell to someone who has been a good friend. Oh, we don’t have to stop being friends – we’ll keep our connections in this blog world. But things won’t be quite the same and we will miss the presence of Randall and Lauralea.
We love you, Randall and Lauralea, and that will not end here.
