subject line: why wouldn't you stay


kennesaw, georgia

Someone told me it takes extra courage to let go of something good. Extra courage to leave a good season and trust that God has something better.

Tonight I read through all of the letters you wrote me for the first time since you left. You wrote me 25 letters in the 6 months that you chose me. You were something so good.

I don’t want that extra courage. I’ll sleep in the sweatshirt I couldn’t give back to you. I’ll re-read those love letters and feel my heart shatter with every word.

Extra courage... maybe tomorrow.
