See you soon!

As I got drawn here and reread posts, I smiled, giggled(just in case my family looked at me like a crazy dude), reflected

Reading quotes, words of wisdom, notes from friends, long lost post helps pause, connect dots to things.

Well, I happen to be reading obituaries on and off, where what you put in that section is an invitation to all about your demise. It also demonstrates a little piece of where your faith holds. I don't read enough of the Bible that these sections gives me a dose of wisdom, recollection of memory verses, verses that I once hold onto deeply. Apart from the verses, I managed to stumble upon one guy, who actually quoted himself, definitely an avid angler with his picture of him in one of those small yachts for a weekend escapade for fishing. There wrote his quote, which went along the lines of, "Gone fishing, see you soon!"

Well, I look at the words, " see you soon!" and reflect what does that mean for me?
I get away on a sabbatical, A retreat (silent ones), A getaway and then return?

Well, till I'm given that privilege to meet my Creator in heaven or when its time for Him to return,
"See you soon" for me as a living person carries on the message that "I'm going to go somewhere" but its all necessary because when getting away(not too long), you are more receptive to new ideas, new people, new ways of thinking(good ones), it 'deepens' my sense of life.

Well, this space that seeks to glorify God's amazing grace 'in His Time' will come to a 'see you soon', 
 I leave this refuge to grow in my willingness to walk on oceans floor that are deep, unknown, definitely scary, unstable, but I know He will be there with me, with us.
to grow in His likeness even more, and walk less waywardly but on His path where He straightens it for me
I look forward to coming back perhaps not on this platform but definitely leaning more on His heart, His voice, His ways. and shine not like stars in what Paul writes in Philippians only but remember His glory that glows like a million suns in our lives.

A  Million Suns(Acoustic) / Hillsongs United

You stand eternal 
The uncreated One 
Who knows no end 
The starry wonders 
The vast expanses 
Bound to Your command 

You shine like a million suns ablaze 
Wrapped in eternal light and praise 
Jesus the First the Last 
The Bright and Morning Star 

You spoke creation 
Into existence 
Life and all we are 
Beyond all measure 
The universe 
An echo of Your power 

You shine like a million suns ablaze 
Wrapped in eternal light and praise 
Jesus the First the Last 
The Bright and Morning Star 

Never ending 
You will reign forevermore 
You are holy 
You are worthy 
Lord of all
