The End of A Chapter

The Bayou Farm Adventure chapter is officially closed. I actually signed the sale a few weeks ago. It just took a long time to sink in that it’s not mine any more. And that I won’t likely ever realize all those dreams I had attached so thoroughly to the most beautiful piece of land I will likely ever be able to call all mine. I have faith one day all of this will hurt less. But, alas, that day remains elusive. And while I am grateful for al the ways God showed up for Us in those moments & I am enjoying the twists & turns Life has surprised me with, there is just something so unsettling about being ripped- mid dream- from a Life you are enjoying so very much- and being thrown into a another Life, nothing like the one you worked so hard to create. It does not matter how beautiful the new is, the sting from being ripped involuntarily from the old remains a haunting reminder that none of this was a choice.

And because Humans seek control in what is uncontrollable… I too seek meaning behind all this hurt. Some divine plan that may lead my heart to some comfort or my Soul to some Peace. And today I find it in the words of a book I am reading….

…”quite possibly, God has chosen us to display His works in or through us through this suffering.”

  2. You are such a gifted writer. There were 2 lines that struck me–
    “…there is just something so unsettling about being ripped- mid dream- from a Life you are enjoying so very much…”
    and
    “It does not matter how beautiful the new is, the sting from being ripped involuntarily from the old remains a haunting reminder that none of this was a choice.”

    WOW.
