Adieu


Goodbye is a word that we use so many times in our lives, often more than once in a day. 'God be with you' is what it really means, and as we say that word, we bless the other person good things that only god can provide us with. But even as a well-wishing, goodbyes can be so difficult at times; in essence you are really sending off the person, leaving their welfare in gods hands because it is something that you can no longer contribute to. Sometimes it is only for a few hours, a few days or even a few years, but it always comes with the uncertainty that the period of absence may never end. To never see again the person you care so deeply for is by no means heartbreaking, but if nothing else u know that god is with them; someone u can trust to care for them..

my father and other members of my family were in the military. that picture reminds me of all the goodbyes i had to say.

that's a beautiful quote. very true. instead of goodbye, we'd tell him to "be with god. we'll see you soon."
