Sad but true - the more you invest in a person's life, the harder it is to let go. Hopefully God not only protected the friend's travel plans, but He also reached into the heart of the one left behind to heal the sense of loss.

Very nice entry..sad but true. Friends come and go, but Jesus is still the same, yesterday, today and forever. We can count on him. Thank you for sharing your message. God bless ya, littlelight

I'm assuming this is somewhat based in fact, and I want you to know I have one friend who would relate to this really well, it's been her experience many times too.

Thanks for reading...and unfortunately this is completely based in fact. Since 1994 I've waved good-bye to at least 12 friends. We all laugh...they become my friend, God promotes them and away they go!

It's sad to gain special friends only to lose them. Perhaps it's something like, "better to love and lose love than never have loved at all. I really liked this; it flowed beautifully and was full of emotion. :)

This felt personal and sad. Good delivery. Nice work.
Sad story, very realistic. At least we can always count on God to never leave us! God bless you.

A good story - and it is hard to see friends move off, but if we share Christ with them, we'll see them later :)

An enjoyable read and so true. I live in a city with a large transient population and know of people, even Christians who no longer invest in developing relationships with people who might be moving on.
Some confusion for me as to who was speaking in the following dialogue: “You’re going to have to get good with your computer.”/
“I promise. I’ll learn to email you, but you know I’m not the writer you are.”/“I know, but you can at least let me know you’re alive.”
