Abbie leaves home in 6 days…. and leaves the country in 10 days.
Earlier this week, we had a get together with some of her friends. A great group of girls. I love them all like they are my own daughters.
They’ve been friends for a long long time, growing up, sharing hopes, dreams. Sharing life.
For the past 18 years, we’ve done all we can to train and raise Abbie to be a God-fearing, people-loving follower of Christ.
A baseball player isn’t really a baseball player, unless he plays baseball… a truck driver isn’t really a truck driver unless he drives truck.
And a Christian isn’t really a Christian unless he follows Christ.
It will be hard to see Abbie go a very long ways away this year. But, she knows this is what she is called to do. And, as scary as it is for a mom to see your daughter move across the world, I’d rather have her go to a foreign land and follow Christ, than stay in the comfort of her own home, and not.
