One From Another...


"May the LORD watch between you and me, when we're absent, one from another...Amen."

Speaking of love and friendships. We're all familiar with the "Not Everybody Can Be In Your Front Row" and "Some People are here for a Season" dogma. But how do you feel about it really?

Toddy recently addressed in his blogs the relief of saying goodbye to an ex romantic interest and his 'divorce' from his older brother. Dear sweet Toddy has grown from it, obtained closure. Query? How about the relationships that do not have the personal satisfaction of closure? What do we do to bring peace those matters?

Far too often, we walk with others for a time, reveling, making merry, and gettin' giddy, then for whatever reason...boo! They're gone. Without so much as a "By your leave," like a thief in the night. I don't understand it. Sometimes we're given a chance to say goodbye, others, there's no warning. What purpose does sudden disappearance serve? Ah, the death and dearth of friendships and love...

Ian's Inquiry: What do you do when you cannot achieve closure to a situation? What positives do you use to close the door and have your own sense of peace?

For me those writings were my closure. Even though I'm a verbally communicative person I express myself best through writing.
My brother will probably never read the message I left him; however, for me, just putting it all out into the open and addressing my feelings was more than enough.

the only thing I do is allow closure to find its way to me...

With the people I tend to hang out with, this is a pretty common situation.
