Does anyone remember the feeling you got when you came home from summer camp or a really good vacation? All the new friends and excitement for a few days and then you go home... and nothing.
I remember the summer of '93 - I was a Junior in High School and church camp that year was really good. Our youth group was awesome - we had all met new friends - and coming home was a drudgery. That Friday I came home I can remember taking a nap on the couch and waking up to find I was the only one home. I felt ripped away from all my friends and a deep emptiness like I had never felt before came over me.
I felt that same way today after coming home from Gospel Baptist Church. I cleaned out my office today after working there for six years. I came home and sat on the couch thinking about all that has transpired and felt really... really... empty. I knew I would feel it at sometime but it didn't hit until today. I will be fine but there are some separation emotions you get after pouring your life into something that are unavoidable. We will miss all of you at GBC and will continue to pray God's blessings on your life. We love you more than you know...
