Sad but supposed to be...


Monday is the day that "redeployment" begins.  It is no longer coming, but it is here and now.  A job has been eliminated, a team "reorganized", a leader redistributed and redeployed. Removed after 10 years of building, trying, risking, and committing.  I know the rhetoric, and the cliches, but they aren't first and foremost in my mind today.  There are so many "perhaps" in my mind.  A new job at Capital One, a new opportunity/job here in Richmond,  a relocation for my family, a better job, a worse job,  traveling so much more, missing family time...

Today, I'm a human.  Sad, mad, disappointed, and grieving the loss of a special time and place in my life.  These feelings are real and present. They cannot be buried and must be experienced viscerally as the experiences which they are and for the experience they will provide.  

I am supposed to be hopeful for the future. Perhaps, I'll get there tomorrow.

I'm so sorry, Jeff. I want to say something comforting, but you don't want to hear Pollyanna stuff. Please just let me just remind you that you are fearfully and wonderfully made ... planned before the beginning of time. All "this" is playing out exactly the way God intended. We have to hang onto this or we'll go insane. Remember that it all works out in the end. If it's not worked out, it's not the end. Okay, enough annoying (but well intended) Pollyanna. I hold you in prayer for comfort and courage.
