Five Minute Friday
This week, I loaded up my car and my three kids and drove someone I love to the airport. Again. Like all the times before, I watched him walk through the doors, waving with the boys until until we couldn’t see him anymore. I cried behind my sunglasses on the highway back home, again. And, as always, even though I miss my family scattered across the globe, I prayed to our God for them, and gave thanks to Him for using us for His kingdom. Again, I considered that the sacrifices of this present age are not worth comparing to what is kept in Heaven for us. I thought again that “Partir est mourir un peu” ~ parting is dying a little. And I am glad, again, that the parting hurts, glad that the Lord has given me a family that I love to be with, who are so very kind and loving to me, glad that it is such a sweet gift to be with them.


This is a prompt from the Gypsy Mama. Go check out her blog, and the other Five Minute Friday posts.


About Rachel

Most importantly, I am saved by grace through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. He is more than enough to satisfy my heart. In His abundant goodness, I am also delighted to be a wife and mama. I work at home and enjoy spending most of my time caring for my husband, 2 sons and new daughter. I also try to squeeze in some creativity, coffee, chocolate, and good books.

  1. Hi Rachel, I could feel your pain … standing there at that airport.
    This is my first time to your blog and 5 minute friday as well. I look forward to getting to know you all better and today I’m praying for you and your family. Lea

  2. Rachel, How cool that we have the same blog themses!!! I enjoyed your post today. It’s difficult to see the lives of our loved ones unfold as the Lord uses them in far off places BUT as you beautifully wrote, those feelings fade as we replace them with His Kingdom perspective!! Be blessed sweet one!! AND I love the HEADER of your blog!!! Willing hands…! Oh Lord, make our hands willing!!! .
