Generosity and Goodbyes

In the next few days, five units (some families, a couple, and a lovely single) will be leaving SITAG.  Some will be going to the village, like us.  Some will be leaving the country.  That's a whole lot of transition and grief and change for our tiny group.  And in the midst of it all, we strive to love each other well and the ease the hard parts.

Right now, it sure feels like we don't have a lot to give.  We're grieving all over again the absence of our two college kids.  We've never been to Marulaon Village without them, and they are super pros at loading boxes and making the transition easier.

So we enjoy a rainy afternoon break of beading and hot chocolate.  We invite people over for simple meals to help ease transition.  We give what we have, even though it feels barely enough for ourselves.  And God stretches it.
