The Gift of Goodbye

He Is Exalted by JJ Hairston and Youthful Praise

I woke up this morning super excited because today was the very last day I was going to have to go the apartment. So you know how we do when we are getting ready to say goodbye we look to part, put on our perfume, blast the music, but something I noticed the closer I got my energy level was dropping, I became nervous, there were butterflies in my stomach as I passed by a corn field that at one time was barren but is now in full harvest. Tears began to fall as I pulled up to the apartment and I couldn’t even move. So I stayed in the car until I was ready. I finally got out and got the rest of the stuff that was left and said good-bye to some neighbors. I took my last look around to make sure nothing was left behind and I noticed something I never had before. The scars, the scrapes, the chipped paint, the dirt marks all because it was covered up. To you it may just be a house, but to me and my family it’s more than just a house. When I saw my house I was still married and never thought I would be going into it alone. This was my 1st and only apartment of 13 1/2 yrs, I raised my children here. You don’t know the sweat, the tears, the struggles, the nights I cried, the times I wanted to give up or even thought suicide was an option, but God. I lost a lot but I have gained so much more. God ALWAYS gives you more than he takes away. So with that being said, as I exit the thing that was and walk into what is, I lift up my countenance and I do what I do best which is give God praise. My conclusion to the whole matter is that GOD has BETTER!#CLEANTHISHOUSE
