Today was his last day going to school and it was the end of an era for him as he slowly took down the pictures and diplomas from off the walls, removed his name from off his mailbox and unscrewed the nameplate from off his office door.(he had to ask Dick to help him with that). I asked him if it was difficult but he said no, he was fine with it. He explains that it's like the tent strings are being cut one by one, God is releasing him slowly from all earthly ties and "that's ok".
After work we had a good visit with two deacons from the church and then we went to Sam and Cara's for a delicious supper and good fellowship. Sam,Cara and Leah sang a song for us, accompanied by Leah on the guitar. They heard this song at the Carey conference this week and wanted to share it with us. It was very touching and the song echoes Jack's desire exactly. We thought we'd share a version of it here. (You may want to pause the music player at the bottom of the blog).
