a tuesday in september

chris is packing
(i sent him off a day
early in my last post)
it really is today
to work with a
church plant
(i always think
of a greenhouse first)
last night
i was so sad
(for myself)
and therein lies the problem
this is for God
pretty sure he's
not sad
this is for Chris
pretty sure he's
i'm looking out now
away from me
and dry-eyed
i will send him off

hooking up with Emily at Chatting at the Sky today for her Tuesday in September.


  1. Awesome for your hubby....but I understand being sad! My hubby works for a mission agency and travels several times a year...same deal....God's pleased...he's excited....me....a little sad!

  2. it's hard sending those people we love off, isn't it? but he'll be making an eternal impact where he is - woohoo! :)

  3. looking out now away from me...

    those are beautiful words. so hard to do sometimes.

  4. Oh Kendal-
    I am so empathic when it comes to your husband being gone...just got mine back.

    Eat chinese food for dinner alot, it helps...just sayin'.
