Dusk or Dawn?



I'd like to share some thoughts that I journaled about just after finding out that my position at Calvary was being terminated...

There is a moment when the sun is rising and setting where if you didn't know what time of day it is, you wouldn't be able to tell if it was dusk or dawn. And that is how I feel. In some ways, I feel like the sun is setting on this chapter of my life. The things i've poured myself into over the last 2 years are becoming dim, yet remaining brilliant by the glow of the sun's rays. On the other hand, I believe that God has something marvelous and exciting in store for us in the next chapter, so it seems that maybe this is the sun breaking through and creating a breathtaking view of the sky--which really is the limit. A new day filled with new possibilities and new hopes and...

So, I'm a bit stuck. I feel less stuck today than I did 4 weeks ago, but I still feel like this is BOTH a sunset and a sunrise. The days ahead, I believe, will reveal the sky and the road ahead and much of this will begin to make sense. I pray it is soon.

Today is February 10th, 2006. When I leave Calvary Church in 30 minutes, I will be looking for the sunrise. The new day will be dawning. And I will be blessed to breathe in the cool air and be reminded that a lot of life is still out in front of me. I'd like this blog to be a place where I get to keep interacting with many of you. I want to share my life. I'll probably share "too mutch" with you, but that's just how I roll.

I'll be seeing you around,

Greg

I guess I never realized that point in the day, I don't know as if I have ever taken the time to actually pay attention. Although I have only met you a few months ago, I still feel deeply blessed to have been able to get to know you.
THANKS!

Greg,
The road God has marked out for you will be an adventure for you as well as a joy. It is so good to know that God promises to lead and direct us every step of the way. I want to encourage you for what you have done for us college students. Relying on God, you have really demonstrated what it means to live a life for God. It is amazing to see the visions and desires God has given you and how you were faithful in letting him lead you in working that out in the college group. Your attitude of serving and how that has influenced the college group in activities that we have done.

Annie,

I hope that the connection we have built will endure this transition. Christine and I both really appreciate you and how you are letting God work in and through you. Maybe I'll start coming to christine's chapels so I can see some folks!

Greg,
What do I say? You have blessed and guided me in life, more ways then I can explain. You were there for me, when my dawn was dark and I didnt see the sunshine. You have been an inspiration to me that I cannot describe. YOU were there when I wasnt sure what my life was or where it was going. But you always knew jokes or words to say to make it seem better..I couldnt ask for a better, Pastor, Friend and most of all one of my hero's..I am devasted to see you leave Calvary, but I know God has an awesome plan for you..I still dont understand you are gone. Its hard for me to understand taht I will not have "Greggy" to see at Missio Dei or at college gatherings..But now you and Christine our always in my prayers..And I love you guys will all my heart.... Misty THANK YOU SO MUCH !!!!!!!
