A Song For Erin

I didn't sing this at the going-away party Friday night. Y'all can thank me later... ;)

Packing up the dreams God planted
In the fertile soil of you
Can't believe the hopes He's granted
Means a chapter in your life is through

But we'll keep you close as always
It won't even seem you've gone
'Cause our hearts in big and small ways
Will keep the love that keeps us strong

And friends are friends forever
If the Lord's the Lord of them
And a friend will not say "never"
'Cause the welcome will not end
Though it's hard to let you go
In the Father's hands we know
That a lifetime's not too long to live as friends...

omg, someone could've warned me! wahhhhhhhhh! I never, in a million years, expected to find THIS when I clicked on your blog tonight, Marly.

From the bottom of my heart, thank you! I already miss you ladies more than you know.

Now I'm off in search of those tissues that you guys gave me Friday night. lolol
