Some know the journey I have been on in life, but for those of you who don't...
I have been married to a preacher for 24 years. He is gifted by God to preach the Word and we have been at some wonderful churches. Three years ago, after hearing clearly from God to start a church, we did just that. We started a church and had about 30 members. Well, three years later, we still had 30 members. We had depleted our savings and retirement and after much discussion and prayer, our wonderful, little church decided to close its doors in March.
God opened a door fairly quickly for possible employment and I am happy to say that we have a new church home at Plymouth Park Church of Christ in Irving, Texas. (happy sigh...) It is 15 miles from our home and so we can leave the last 2 kids in their schools and not have to move. (Maybe in 5 years, after the kids leave home we can get over that way!) The people at the church are warm, friendly, and very welcoming. I am so excited to be a part of this group of believers and am looking forward to many years of fellowship and growth in our Lord.
We begin on Father's Day, which I find appropriate, at least for me. For you see, in this journey I've been on, if there is anything I have learned, it is that God is God. He is my Father, my ultimate Provider, my Guide, my Comforter, and my Peace. I may not have all the answers, but I have the knowledge that He does know and He cares so very much about me.
Keep me and my family in your prayers as we begin a new path on this life's journey. It is full of hope and expectation and I anticipate great and mighty things to come! Let me hear some Woo Hoo's!!!!
