It was David who reminded me of how many words have been spoken over my writing a book. I still haven't written it... but that's another story. However, David believed in what God had spoken long before I did. He encouraged me to write. And I have.
|A picture David took (stole it from his website) of me praying in Norway.|
Unfortunately, he's not in the picture though... good times!
I never thought that of all the people that we went to Norway with in 2002 that David and I would be the ones who remained connected. I don't know if he is still connected with anyone else from that trip - other than our leader and his wife, I know I'm not connected with anyone. Even that connection is very superficial - life does move on.
Ahhh, Norway. What a trip that was - so many things to say, so many memories. All of them good! except maybe looking at pickled herring at breakfast. You'd think I'd be used to that growing up in a Norwegian home.
I'm sad. I'm really sad that David is moving on. Oh, I know we'll stay connected. But somehow, change, even when it is for something good, is something that makes us sad. God has kept His hand on David - forming, molding him, changing him, and now releasing him into greater things in God. For that I rejoice with him.
I know you'll miss him too. I think today of a verse that seems appropriate for those of us carrying on with KB: being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus (Philippians 1:6 NIV). God used David (and Tony and David T) to start this good work - He'll complete it... As David moves on to greater things in God, my prayer for him is found in 2 Corinthians 3:18 And David, who with unveiled faces reflects the Lord's glory, continually being transformed into his likeness with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit. (Paraphrase mine :)
From Glory to Glory David -
