11 CORINTHIANS 9:8 “AND GOD IS ABLE TO MAKE ALL GRACE ABOUND TO YOU, SO THAT IN ALL THINGS AT ALL TIMES, HAVING ALL THAT YOU NEED, YOU WILL ABOUND IN EVERY GOOD WORK.”
I think my theme for this month has been LET’S DO IT AGAIN, I have seen God’s grace equipping and empowering me to press on in so many ways this month of December.
LET’S DO IT AGAIN...One more Women’s Ministry event, but this time I was the most fortunate recipient. December started with a wonderful retirement party hosted by Women’s Ministry, our new Women’s Ministry Director and the church staff. So many volunteered their time to make me feel so loved and supported! It was such a gift to be surrounded by co-workers and friends with an extra special bonus to be joined by all my children.
LET’S DO IT AGAIN...First Noel. What a wonderful way to finish off my 27 years of ministry, yummy desserts, beautiful decorated tables hosted by many women and Kathy Troccoli to share her beautiful voice and message. It was an inspirational way to start the Christmas season and we were all blessed by the Holy Spirits presence.
LET’S DO IT AGAIN…We sold our house, bought a new one, packed, moved and unpacked, all before Christmas!
LET’S DO IT AGAIN…We are done with the house move, but now it’s time to pack up my office. I’ve served First Baptist Church of Lodi for many, many years and it certainly was noticeable as I packed up years of books, ministry tools and emptied a desk that has served me well. I have to admit, it was hard closing that office door for the final time. It is the end of a long and fruitful journey in my life with God blessing me with so many precious memories and friends.
I will take the next two weeks and enjoy retirement. But I hear God’s still small voice saying “LET’S DO IT AGAIN” so; once again I will pack and get ready to take off for India on Jan 12th. I am excited and yes a little nervous. This is big change. I will be gone for months and will attempt to pack my life into a few suitcases, but I rest in the promise that God’s grace will abound and He has promised to take care of all my needs.
I covet your prayers and support as I start this new journey and I have a few requests:
That I stay focused as I pack and remember to take with me everything I need
That everything is in order here in the States before I leave
For safe travels and a smooth transition as I go thru Indian customs
That I am able to quickly settle into my new surroundings in Assam, India
Wisdom as I prepare messages for a Women’s Conference in India in March
For all of my financial needs to be met
Health and stamina to run my race well all for HIS Glory!
